Dr. Anthony Roberts earned his doctor of medicine from University of Maryland School of Medicine. Skilled in Lasik as well as other ophthalmological procedures, he joined Shady Grove Ophthalmology in 2002, where he continues to treat patients today. Dr. Anthony Roberts employs state-of-the-art advancements such as multifocal intraocular lenses to treat eye disease.
Anyone with reading glasses knows that taking glasses on and off just to read a dinner menu or e-mail is inconvenient. One of the most advanced lens treatments, multifocal intraocular lenses (or IOLs for short) are implants designed to help visually impaired patients see at varying distances using points of reference.
Bifocal lenses allow the patient to view near and distant objects by looking through two different parts of the lenses: the top to view faraway objects and the bottom to see closer objects. Patients who receive multifocal IOLs can look at any object, at any distance, and the IOL readjusts automatically. After conquering a slight learning curve, such as learning how far to hold magazines and books from the eyes for optimum viewing distance, patients can enjoy reading and driving without glasses.
