Traditional artificial lenses are focused at one distance. This means that patients who get such artificial lenses get clear vision at one distance, usually they do not see up close clearly. So then most people need to wear glasses when reading. There are constant developments in the field of artifical lenses, which has allowed individuals to become less dependent on glasses, so-called multifocal lens implants. Studies show that approximately 8 out of 9 patients receiving these types of artifical lenses will never need to wear glasses. They are an exciting alternative to traditional artifical lenses for those who have cataracts and want to see the most without glasses after eye surgery. They are no less exciting for those who are tired of glasses but want to see both near and far.
