Tecnis IOLThe Tecnis® lens is an intraocular lens implant which replaces the natural lens of the eye. It is one of the only wavefront-designed lens proven to improve your vision in low light environments; which results in excellent vision at ALL distance and light levels. Not only will you be able to clearly see during the day time, but the Tecnis lens will also allow you the freedom of clearly seeing at night!

If you have complications with your vision while driving at night, the Tecnis® Multifocal can significantly help to restore your vision. Among other multifocal intraocular lenses, Tecnis delivers superior results and offers the chance to become glasses free post-cataract surgery! The lens is implanted during cataract surgery; so there is no need for an additional procedure.

Clinical trials have shown that 4-6 months post-Tecnis® implantation, 84% of patients had 20/20 vision or better, 14% had 20/25 to 20/40 vision and 1% had 20/50 to 20/100 vision. Nearly 9 out of 10 patients did not require glasses following cataract surgery.
