Most standard artificial lens implants only correct for one focal point and do not restore your ability to see both near and far. When we are younger, our natural lens allows us to accommodate and focus on close object and far objects. This means that after cataract surgery, you will need a prescription to see object up close. Many times, patients can simply buy over-the-counter readers from the drug store when they need to see up close. For patients who desire to see up close and far away without the need for glasses, Dr. Switch offers the option of implanting a premium lens implant which can correct near and far vision.
