Monofocal intraocular lenses are the most common standard way of treating cataracts.
When solely treating cataracts, the cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a new artificial lens. Your vision is usually improved immediately or on the day after the procedure.
Your ophthalmologist will establish the values for your artificial lens based on your eye’s measurements. Generally, a standard cataract operation will correct short-sightedness, so you will no longer need distance glasses.
It is not possible to correct more complex visual disorders such as presbyopia using these monofocal lenses. Toric monofocal lenses are available to correct astigmatism. Your doctor will be able to advise you in detail.
Standard monofocal lenses enable optimal vision without glasses in the distance.
Depending on your individual situation, you will need glasses for intermediate and/or near vision even after your cataract surgery.
