Premium Intraocular Lens Implants
Patients who have cataracts may have, or will eventually develop, an age-related condition known as presbyopia. Presbyopia is the reason that reading glasses become necessary, typically after age 40, even people who have excellent distance and near vision without glasses. Presbyopic individuals require bifocals or separate (different prescription) reading glasses in order to see clearly at close range. With today’s intraocular lens implant technologies, it is possible to become more spectacle-independent after cataract surgery.
- MONOVISION, or “BLENDED” VISION: Implant IOLs with two different powers, one for near vision, and other for distance vision. This combination of a distance eye and a reading eye is called monovision, or “blended vision”, and would allow you to read without glasses. It has been employed quite successfully in many contact lens and refractive surgery patients.
- LIGHT-ADJUSTABLE LENS (RxSight©) – The RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only intraocular lens (IOL) that can be customized after cataract surgery. The Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photosensitive material that can be adjusted in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. This optimization is done by your eye doctor in the weeks following lens implantation through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior vision outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match.
- MULTIFOCAL Intraocular Lens Implants, such as the Panoptix lens, provides distance, intermediate, and near vision in each eye.
- TORIC intraocular lenses correct for astigmatism and are available for both monofocal implants and multifocal implants.”
- The VIVITY lens is a multifocal implant that minimizes the chances of having glare or haloes after cataract surgery.
If you are a candidate for these options, they will be discussed with you at your pre-operative visit.
