Multifocal and Accommodating Lenses

Multifocal IOL is a “deluxe” type of lens designed to replace cataracts and help correct more than one point of focus. Their goal is to correct distance vision and other ranges, like reading or intermediate, to give you greater independence from glasses. This lens may not be recommended for patients with astigmatism. Most insurance companies will pay a small portion of this IOL.
Accommodating IOL is a “deluxe” type of lens designed to mimic the eye’s natural process of accommodation. Accommodation is the eye’s natural ability to bend its lens to focus. The eye naturally loses its accommodating power as it ages due to the hardening of the natural lens. This makes it necessary to wear reading glasses or bifocals. The accommodating IOL helps restore the ability to accommodate and reduces dependence on glasses. Most insurance companies will pay a small portion of this IOL.
