IOLs for Distance and near correction

Catarct lens implants to correct Intermediate (shopping, cooking or computer), reading and distance vision

Dr. Charles Titone is offering the latest in Presbyopia (Near vision) correcting Lenses as an option to his cataract patients who want better reading  or near vision without glasses than conventional cataract surgery. Each lens has it own unique strengths Dr. Titone will base his recommendation on your personal needs.


The latest addition to the TECNIS® Family of IOLs offers new optical technology for providing an Extended Range of Vision.

Traditional IOL solutions for treating presbyopia include Multifocals and Trifocals, which work on the principle of simultaneous vision by splitting light into multiple distinct foci, and Accommodative IOLs, which change in shape and power when the ciliary muscle contracts.

Traditionally with these technologies, the correction of presbyopia is commonly thought of in terms of the distinct distance for which functional vision is provided.


Introducing TECNIS® Symfony Logo IOL, the first and only presbyopia-correcting extended range of vision IOL from Johnson and Johnson Vision.

The TECNIS® Symfony Logo Extended Range of Vision IOL delivers a continuous, full range of high-quality vision with incidence of halos and glare comparable to a monofocal IOL.1, 2

Introduction Toric and Non-Toric

TECNIS® Symfony Logo Extended Range of Vision IOL is available in both a Non-Toric version and a Toric version for patients with astigmatism.


Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (Simultaneous Vision Type for correction of near and distance vision) 

These lenses are not as good for intermediate as the Symphony  lens

The Tecnis multifocal IOL by Johnson and Johnson Vision, high-quality vision at any distance.



ZMB00It’s an advanced implantable lens, empowering you with high-quality vision in any light condition, from near to far distances—and everything in between. In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 patients don’t need glasses after the procedure(1)

Designed to give patients back their youthful vision, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens provides patients with high-quality vision at any distance, and in any light condition—even in low light.(1)

Superior Results       The advanced TECNIS® Multifocal is an implantable lens that restores vision after cataract surgery and corrects presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). It delivers results superior to those of a standard multifocal lens and offers an excellent chance to become spectacle independent

This lens is available at three different distances for near vision Dr. Titone will suggest the best distance for you.
