Generally, while both designs expand the range of clear vision compared with conventional monofocal IOLs, accommodating IOLs tend to provide sharper distance vision than multifocal lenses, and multifocal IOLs tend to provide more magnifying power for seeing fine print than accommodating IOLs.Your cataract surgeon can help you decide if accommodating IOLs or multifocal IOLs are the right choice for your particular needs during your preoperative eye exam and consultation.
The synonyms have been arranged depending on the number of charachters so that they're easy to find.
That said, most people who choose one of these accommodating IOLs are very pleased with the greater freedom from eyeglasses they have after cataract surgery.
Another type of presbyopia-correcting IOL that is an alternative to accommodative IOLs is the multifocal IOL category.
Crystalens and Trulign Toric are premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) that correct presbyopia as well as common refractive errors, enabling an expanded range of clear vision and a decreased need for eyeglasses after cataract surgery, compared with surgery performed with conventional IOLs.
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.
