Tecnic lens

When I asked my surgeon about t;he Tecnic lens, she said they were no better than the acrylic lens.  She said they probably were better in Europe, but the same Tecmics were not available yet in the USA.  Is this true?  Thanks.

Every surgeon is allowed to have their own opinion about "THE BEST IOL" Tecnis in the US is available in acrylic and silicone.

I think your doctor may have been referring to the Tecnis multifocal.  They're available in Europe, but it will be a couple of years before they're approved in the North American market.  Better?  They have all the issues associated with multifocals, but different than the two multifocal IOLs currently available.

Cheers,
Glenn
