The ability to quickly change focus throughout this range of vision is called accommodation.
Unfortunately, this ability diminishes as we grow older, causing us to become dependent on bifocals or reading glasses.
It could be something as simple as a run away script or learning how to better use E-utilities, for more efficient work such that your work does not impact the ability of other researchers to also use our site.
With the appearance of accommodating lenses on the market in recent years, inevitable comparisons are now being drawn between multifocal lenses and the latest advancement in IOL technology.
They cannot be used to treat astigmatism, but you can choose to have a separate laser eye surgery procedure to address your astigmatism if you wish. S., only one brand of accommodating IOL is currently available: Crystalens.
Check out the following video to learn more, or continue reading about Crystalens risks, costs and candidacy.
Several new intraocular lenses (IOLs), called multifocal and/or accommodating IOLs, have been introduced in recent years that utilize advanced technology to achieve good distance, intermediate and near vision without glasses.
One such lens is the Acry Sof® IQ Re STOR® lens, a breakthrough lens that uses apodized diffractive technology (similar to technology used in telescopes and microscopes) to give patients a full range of vision – near through distance – and to reduce dependency on reading glasses or bifocals following cataract surgery.
With the latest advances, having clear vision at only one distance is no longer the only option.
