Monofocal Aspheric Lenses: Aspheric IOLs are slightly flatter in the periphery and are designed to provide better contrast sensitivity. Contrast sensitivity is often referred to as "functional vision," beyond how well you see details on a standard eye chart. Poor contrast sensitivity also can cause you to stumble when you fail to see that you need to step down from a curb onto similarly colored pavement. Lack of contrast sensitivity is not the same as blurred vision. John-Kenyon offers two aspheric IOL options: The SofPort Advance Optics IOL and the Tecnic Monofocal IOL. Both lenses can provide better contrast sensitivity as well as the ability to reduce visual aberrations which can improve the ability to see in varying light conditions, such as rain, snow, fog, twilight and nighttime darkness.
