Cataract Surgery with Multifocal Lens
DESCRIPTION OF CATARACT SURGERY WITH MULTIFOCAL LENS
Multifocal Lens surgery is one of the most preferred surgery to improve vision after the cataract is removed or when presbyopia (distant vision problem) is corrected. Most surgeries are used to address the issues of distance and near visions and unfortunately, they don’t address both at the same time. Patients need to wear the corrective lens for fixing vision. Patients wear the corrective lens for presbyopia but they still have to use bifocals and reading glasses to view nearly placed things. To eliminate the efforts, medical experts have brought a single solution to the vision problems, it is “Multifocal lens”.
Multifocal Intraocular lenses are prosthetic lenses. Human natural lenses are replaced with this. Most patients prefer to replace their lenses before a cataract is developed, this procedure is called “Refractive Lens Exchange”. The multifocal lens improves intermediate, distant, and near visions.
Multifocal lenses surface are etched with concentric rings that allow the retina to focus better on the things placed at different locations and restore visual capability.
LENGTH OF SURGERY
The surgery takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to replace the natural lenses. If the patient already has a cataract, it may take a little longer.
TYPE OF ANESTHESIA DURING SURGERY
For the surgical procedure of eyes, normally, local or topical anesthesia is given to the patients. Sedatives are also provided orally to increase numbness. Experts also prefer to use eye drops and injections to numb eyes before surgery.
