Multifocal IOL Implants


tecnis iol Dr. Balin was the first surgeon in western Massachusetts to become certified to implant the advanced TECNIS multifocal IOL. For our cataract surgery patients this lens offers high quality distance, intermediate and near vision without glasses. The lens is unique in that it provides clear vision at all distances, in all light conditions. This lens has the highest patient satisfaction rating of all the presbyopia correcting lenses. In a clinical study over 94% of study patients indicated that they would choose the Tecnis Lens again.

In order to know if you are a good candidate for the TECNIS multifocal IOL, you would need a comprehensive eye exam with Dr. Balin. Please contact the office at 413-584-6666 or 800-436-EYES (3937) if you have additional questions or if you would like to schedule your exam.

ReSTOR® Lens

restorThe ReSTOR® lens implant is used to correct the vision of patients who have cataracts or those patients who are experiencing difficulty with up-close vision. The ReSTOR® multifocal IOL provides patients with distance and reading vision within the lens. During an outpatient surgery, the patient’s natural lens is removed and replaced with the ReSTOR® lens. This revolutionary lens is designed to allow patients to see clearly at all distances. In fact clinical studies show that 80% of those patients receiving the lens did not need glasses for any activities following the procedure. Patients must undergo a complete eye exam with Dr. Balin to determine if they are a good candidate for the ReSTOR® lens. Please contact the office at 413-584-6666 or 800-436-EYES (3937) to learn more about the ReSTOR® lens or schedule a complete eye exam.
