Do you have a cataract and need cataract surgery? Luckily, we provide a variety of premium lens implants! Dr. Cheema is proud to offer a wide range of premium IOLs to fit the needs and lifestyle of every patient.
After your cataract is removed, your eye will no longer have its natural lens. We need this lens to focus light onto the retina, and without it, our vision would be extremely blurry. So, to improve patient’s vision after cataract surgery, an artificial lens will be inserted. All cataract surgery includes a standard IOL, called a monofocal lens. This lens will restore vision, but only allows patients to see clearly at one distance. With premium IOLs, not only will your vision be restored, it may be even better than before you had cataracts!
There are many different types of IOLs available on the market. Dr. Cheema offers only the best, and is committed to matching patients with the perfect IOL to suit their needs. 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 that make multifocal lenses are 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.
For extended depth of focus lenses, the Tecnis Symfony lens is a multitasking option. With the Symfony lens, your cataract is removed, without the issues that can come along with other multifocal lenses like halos, glare, and diminished vision. The Symfony lens is placed into the eye after the cataract is removed, leaving only quality vision that holds up under different kinds of vision conditions.
