Hi-tech advances in lens design means more choice.

There are two main lens types; monofocal and multifocal. Both are available in toric form to treat astigmatism. Your prescription, clinical results and lifestyle will help decide the right lens for you.

Monofocal - can only focus at a single distance
Monofocal lenses can only focus at one distance. It can help you see near or far objects but not both at the same time.

Most patients choose to have a distance lens in both eyes. Another option is monovision - one eye fitted with a near lens and the other with a distance lens.

Multifocal - can reduce the need for reading glasses after surgery
A multifocal lens corrects both near and distance vision so that both near and far objects in focus at the same time.

Much like bifocal or varifocal lenses in a pair of glasses, the lens is designed to let you see at all distances. They help reduce the need for reading glasses, but you may still need glasses for close-up work.

Both monofocal and multifocal lenses are available in toric form for patients with moderate to high degrees of astigmatism.

Astigmatism occurs when the natural curve of the cornea is uneven causing distorted vision. A toric lens is shaped to correct these imperfections and fit around the shape of the eye.
