The Superior Results of the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens

The TECNIS® Multifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) offers patients with age-related vision loss an excellent chance to regain younger vision and become free of glasses.


Designed to provide you with clearer, crisper vision at near, far and everywhere in between, the TECNIS® Multifocal IOL is an implantable lens that improves vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). If you enjoy activities such as reading, boating, quilting, playing golf, sightseeing or surfing the Internet, theTECNIS® Multifocal IOL may be the right lens for you.

The TECNIS® Multifocal IOL is proven to provide excellent vision at all distances and all lighting conditions1?day and night. In a clinical study, nearly 9 out of 10 patients implanted with the TECNIS® Multifocal IOL did not require reading glasses after their cataract surgery.1 Additionally, an overwhelming majority of people who have received the TECNIS® Multifocal IOL are very satisfied with their vision following the procedure, and 91.7% said they would elect to do it again.1

With the TECNIS® Multifocal IOL, you may comfortably enjoy everyday activities such as reading a menu in a dimly lit restaurant, taking a walk at dusk or even driving at night. Be sure to ask your doctor about whether you are a candidate for the TECNIS® Multifocal IOL.
