The artificial lenses implanted in the eye during cataract surgery, known as intraocular lenses (IOLs), were once only able to correct distance vision, leaving patients dependent on eyeglasses for near vision. New advances in technology have allowed for the development of specialized, premium IOLs. With premium IOL implantation, many patients are able to eliminate or significantly reduce their dependence on eyeglasses after surgery.
There are several different types of premium lens implants available for cataract patients. Currently, the lenses we offer are TECNIS® multifocal, ReSTOR® multifocal and Cyrstalens® accommodating IOL. Each lens offers its own advantages and we would be happy to discuss these options during your visit.
Each company who offers these lenses has their own website that can offer more detailed information.
