Abbott Unveils Two New Intraocular Lenses for People with Cataracts in US

Abbott has announced the US launch of two new Tecnis Multifocal intraocular lenses, or IOLs, for people with cataracts. An IOL is an artificial lens placed in a person's eye to restore vision after a cataract has been removed. While traditional monofocal IOLs are designed to restore far or distance vision, multifocal IOLs provide quality vision at multiple distances and reduce or eliminate the need for glasses. The new lenses approved by the FDA are known as TECNIS Multifocal +2.75D and +3.25D IOLs. Along with the available TECNIS Multifocal +4.0D IOL, all of the TECNIS Multifocal IOLs provide excellent vision at near, intermediate and far distances, while each "lens power" version provides enhanced vision at a distinct distance. The new TECNIS Multifocal IOLs provide people with cataracts options to customize their treatment based on their personal vision needs and lifestyle. The TECNIS Multifocal +4.0D is suited for people favoring near vision-related activities, such as reading a book. The TECNIS Multifocal +3.25D IOL is suited for people who favor activities at longer reading distances, such as reading a hand-held device like a tablet. The TECNIS Multifocal +2.75D IOL is suited for people who favor activities done with intermediate vision, such as reading labels while grocery shopping.
