ReZoom™ Multifocal Intraocular Lens
The ReZoom™ Multifocal intraocular lens (IOL) implant is indicated for replacement of cataract (clouding of the eye’s natural lens), high myopia (nearsightedness) or high hyperopia (farsightedness). The ReZoom™ IOL has five zones of power, which enables vision at distance, near and in between, i.e., computer or cooking. This new technology is referred to as Balanced View Optics™. A study of this new technology revealed that 92% of ReZoom recipients never or only occasionally wore glasses after surgery.
The technology in the ReZoom™ IOL was designed to support good vision in varying light conditions, e.g., night driving or reading a menu in a dark restaurant. ReZoom is a refractive IOL, which utilizes 100% of light rays entering the eye. There is often a period of adjustment after surgery, while your brain learns to adapt to the new vision. This adjustment period can last anywhere from 6-12 weeks. Some individuals will report glare or halos at night, which generally diminishes over time or becomes less bothersome.
Medicare now allows beneficiaries to choose their IOL. The conventional monofocal (single vision) IOL is included in the cost of the cataract surgery. Those beneficiaries who elect to have one of the new premium, multifocal IOLs, e.g., ReZoom™, ReSTOR® or Crystalens®, agree to pay the additional charges associated with the lens.
Making the decision about which IOL to have is easier said than done. When you come for your consultation, we will ask that you complete a questionnaire regarding your visual needs/expectations after eye surgery. After your examination, Dr. Miller will discuss your treatment options and recommend the IOL he feels will best meet your needs. He will spend the time to explain the pros & cons of multifocals vs. monofocal IOLs. Patient education is the hallmark of our practice and ensures that our patients are well informed and feel confident in their decision making process.
