Monofocal IOLs

Standard IOL: Restore your Vision after Cataracts

This common IOL type has been used for several decades. Most people who choose monofocal IOLs have their IOLs set for distance vision and use reading glasses for near activities. Alternatively, you may choose to have the IOL correct for near vision, and then use glasses to see distant objects clearly.

Some who choose monofocal IOLs decide to have the IOL for one eye set for distance vision, and the other set for near vision, a strategy called “monovision.” The brain adapts and synthesizes the information from both eyes to provide vision at intermediate distances. Often this reduces the need for reading glasses. Individuals considering monovision may be able to try this technique with contact lenses first to see how well they can adapt to monovision. Those who require crisp, detailed vision may decide monovision is not for them.
