Best Multifocal Lens Implant Brand

Question: Which brand of multifocal lens implant is best?

Answer: Patients having Cataract Surgery and considering Multifocal Lens Implants are often confused in thinking that they are "buying" a brand of surgical medical device that can be rated in its performance like tires for an automobile. Whether a Multifocal Lens Implant performs successfully depends on
  1. careful patient selection to be sure that the optical design is appropriate for the patient identified needs and optical requirements,
  2. the skill of the Cataract Surgeon and,
  3. the precision and accuracy of the measurements and calculations used to select the Lens Implant power-among other considerations.
One might see a great PR piece or read about a Lens Implant brand and conclude that it is exactly what they want-only to be disappointed when the Lens Implant doesn't work for them because they needed a different design that wasn't dependent on pupil size for example, or one that worked by refractive rather than diffractive optics as they were sensitive to low contrast image degradation. THERE IS MUCH MORE TO THE SELECTION OF THE BEST MULTIFOCAL LENS THAN READING MANUFACTURER'S MARKETING NONSENSE! There is NO best brand of Multifocal Lens Implant as it is entirely dependent on your eyes and your needs AND can be right on the mark if the "best brand of multifocal lens implant" is properly implanted OR can not work at all if implanted improperly-for example if it is implanted off center by 1.0 mm! Thus the skill and the experience of the Cataract Surgeon is want makes these Lens Implants work or fail...not the brand!
