About Monofocal IOL

The most commonly used intraocular lens implants placed at the time of laser cataract surgery are spherical lenses with varying powers to attempt to match a patient’s choice of their primary focal length. With some degree of precision, the implants can help patients with spherical eyes develop a suitable focal distance.

These lenses have been used since 1949 with various modifications over six decades. This monovisual approach is a time-tested solution and still considered the standard when it comes to addressing long-distance vision.

It is important to consult closely with your doctor to see what type of intraocular lens implant is the right choice for you.
