The AMO TECNIS
Sight changing, life changing.
Cataract surgery is more than just the most common surgical procedure in the world. It's an opportunity to rejuvenate your vision to how it was when you were younger.
The advanced TECNIS® Multifocal is an implantable lens that significantly improves vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia. Designed to help you regain younger vision and be virtually free of glasses, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens can provide you with quality vision at virtually all distances and in all lighting conditions.
If you enjoy activities such as reading, boating, quilting, playing golf, sightseeing, or surfing the Internet, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens allows you to lead an active lifestyle.
High-quality vision even in low-light environments, such as reading a menu in a restaurant or driving at night.
Excellent vision for most distances—near and far.
Nearly 9 out of 10 patients never have to wear glasses.
Over 94% of patients would choose the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens again, according to a recent clinical study.
A. Every surgical procedure has risks and potential side effects. Your doctor will explain all of these in full detail. However, the lens removal and lens implant technique used in the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens procedure is performed over 15 million times per year worldwide and is recognized for its safety and predictability.
A. Everyone heals at a different rate, but in most cases, you will notice improved vision almost immediately after your procedure. You may, however, have an adjustment period where you see some glare or halos around bright lights. In most cases, this goes away over a period of weeks or months.
A. Many people with the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens experience the best eyesight they've had in years. In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 people do not require glasses after receiving a TECNIS® Multifocal implantable lens.
A. If you've been diagnosed with cataracts, you may be a candidate for the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens. Whether the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens is the right choice for you depends on your personal preferences, lifestyle, and the overall health of your eyes. Your doctor will make a recommendation following a complete eye exam.
A: The TECNIS® Multifocal Lens is a multifocal intraocular lens. Unlike traditional monofocal (single-focus) lens implants, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens can provide quality vision at all distances – near (reading), intermediate (computer use or cooking), and far (driving). Traditional monofocal lenses usually provide good vision only at a distance and usually require glasses for reading and computer.
A: The natural lens inside the eye is gently removed through a tiny incision in the periphery of your eye's cornea. The lens implant is inserted in its place to permanently replace it. The procedure usually takes about 15 to 45 minutes and vision is usually improved.
