Monofocal IOLs – these lenses have a specific focal point. Most patients prefer to have good distance vision and choose to then wear reading glasses. This lens can also be set to give good reading vision with the patient wearing distance glasses post-surgery
Multifocal IOLs – Multifocal lenses aim to reduce dependence on glasses for a wider range of activities, including intermediate (computer screens) and near (reading) vision. If you are suitable for lens replacement surgery, your surgeon will discuss which IOL type is the best option for you.
