What are bifocal lens implants?
Bifocal lens implants are artificial lens implants that help restore the vision of a patient afflicted with cataracts, presbyopia, or another condition that compromises the eyes’ natural lenses. Bifocal lens implants are so named because they provide good vision at close distances as well as far — replacing or supplementing the wearing of bifocals. Lenses such as ReZoom™, Crystalens®, and ReSTOR® are offered at Weinstein Refractive Center to patients with cataracts or presbyopia — both age-related eye conditions that affect the lens. These lenses are painlessly implanted into the eye through the same tiny incision made during cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange. They mimic the abilities of a young, healthy lens, giving patients good vision.
