Johnson & Johnson Tecnis Multifocal and Multifocal Toric II

Tecnis IOL

For those venturing into the transformative journey of cataract surgery, selecting the appropriate intraocular lens (IOL) is pivotal. An IOL replaces your cloudy, natural lens and can correct refractive errors — nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism (that’s what the TORIC is used for) and presbyopia.

 

One option for high-quality vision after cataract treatment is the Tecnis Multifocal intraocular lens by Johnson & Johnson. With its toric version, the Tecnis Multifocal lens also offers clear vision to patients with astigmatism.

High-quality, full-range vision 

The Tecnis Multifocal IOL utilizes state-of-the-art technology to provide a full range of vision. Unlike more common monofocal lenses which have one range of focus (usually distance vision), the Tecnis Multifocal lens has multiple focal points.

 

It is specially optimized for intermediate vision activities like grocery shopping and reading at a distance of 50 cm. Compared to monofocal IOLs, the Tecnis multifocal presbyopia-correcting lens may eliminate your need for reading glasses.

 

Additionally, its diffractive design means it works with the natural focusing capability of the eye, to decrease visual disturbances when transitioning from one focal point to another.

 

Overcoming astigmatism with precision

It’s been reported that over 80% of cataract patients also have astigmatism — a condition in which the eye’s curvature is irregular. The Tecnis Multifocal Toric II corrects astigmatism after IOL implantation. Crafted to mitigate spherical aberrations and enhance visual contrast, this lens offers a standard of crisp and vivid vision.

 

What are the benefits of the Tecnis Multifocal and Tecnis Multifocal Toric II?

Correcting for refractive error isn’t all intraocular lenses do. The Tecnis Multifocal IOL is designed with the latest technology to provide additional vision benefits.

 

Clear low-light vision with the Tecnis Multifocal 

Night vision disturbances such as glare, starbursts, and halos can make seeing in low-light conditions difficult and night-driving downright dangerous. The Tecnis Multifocal has an aspheric design that reduces spherical aberrations, thereby reducing visual disturbances.

 

Over 90% of Tecnis Multifocal patients reported no night vision difficulty. Engineered for real-world performance, it ensures spectacle independence even in low-light conditions.

 

Long-Term visual clarity

Glistenings, or microscopic inclusions, can compromise visual quality. Unlike many IOLs on the market, Tecnis is crafted from a unique UV-blocking hydrophobic acrylic material, which helps its longevity and sustained visual clarity.

 

Additionally, the material's resistance to yellowing means that Tecnis retains its optical clarity as it ages, preventing age-related color perception shifts over time.

 

Achieve spectacle independence

Patients who have opted for the Tecnis Multifocal IOL report living a life free of glasses, contact lenses, and bifocals. In fact, in a clinical study, 90% of participants reported improved near vision and complete freedom from reading glasses.

 

This can transform everyday activities, from driving to enjoying outdoor events, into more vivid and memorable experiences without the constraint of additional visual aids.

 

Safety and efficacy

The Tecnis Multifocal IOL is FDA-approved for use in cataract surgery and lens exchange. Patients can embark on their visual restoration journey with assurance, supported by a team of experts dedicated to optimizing outcomes.

 

The one-piece design also streamlines the lens implantation process, decreasing the risk of misplacement.

 

What are the downsides RISK of the Tecnis Multifocal?

The Tecnis Multifocal is safe, tested, and has a high rate of customer satisfaction, however, it’s not perfect for everyone. 

 

During your consultation with our cataract experts, our eye doctors will thoroughly evaluate your eyes, vision, lifestyle, and personal goals. With this information, we’ll pick the best IOL from the top contenders.
