Premium Lens Implants

Do you have a cataract and need cataract surgery? A variety of premium lens implants are now available. Premium lens implants will not only improve your vision after cataract surgery, but can correct presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition where your eye is unable to focus clearly on objects that are up close. Correcting presbyopia can free your need of reading glasses or bifocals. There are many types of premium lens implants including multifocal, accommodating, and toric IOL.

Two major brands of the multifocal lens is ACRYSOF IQ ReSTOR and Tecnis IOL. These lenses are FDA approved and can give a patient a range of clear vision at all distances after cataract surgery.

Crystalens is an accommodating lens that corrects vision using a hinged monofocal lens that moves within the eye just like a natural eye lens would. This brand can help correct presbyopia and helps people who struggle with intermediate or distant vision.

A toric IOL lens is used when a patient has cataract surgery, but also needs to correct astigmatism. This brand can reduce astigmatism after surgery and will contribute to better vision.

Your cataract surgeon will help you choose the best lens for you after cataract surgery.
