Having to frequently take reading glasses on and off is inconvenient for many people.Because of this, a person might wear reading glasses around their neck, scatter multiple pairs around the house or wear bifocals all the time.With today’s advanced lens procedures, patients now have a choice in the type of lens that is implanted during cataract or clear lens extraction surgery.Unlike conventional “single vision” intraocular lenses (IOLs), accommodating IOLs are lens implants that are designed to help patients see at varying distances using different points of focus.Ever since their conception, multifocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) have been measured against their predecessor, monofocal lenses.With the appearance of accommodating lenses on the market in recent years, inevitable comparisons are now being drawn between multifocal lenses and the latest advancement in IOL technology.

Currently, Crystalens and Trulign Toric IOLs are the only FDA-approved presbyopia-correcting IOLs for cataract surgery that improve near vision by a focusing process called accommodation.“So I just made the decision in him to just go ahead and put in the Re STOR bilaterally and he is absolutely ecstatic he’s never worn glasses since and he can see everything.” What Dr.Horn does now is to put in the Aspheric Re STOR first, see how the patients do with their intermediate vision and if they were happy with it, he implants the Re STOR bilaterally. Dougherty said he uses the Re Zoom (Advanced Medical Optics, Santa Ana, Calif.).When the ciliary muscle contracts, the lens thickens, becoming more curved for added magnification for clear near vision.In a young eye, accommodation is essentially instantaneous and effortless.
