Premium IntraOcular Lens
Cataract eye surgery involves removing the clouded lens and replacing it with a clear, artificial intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery patients have the option of choosing a standard IOL or a premium IOL.
a) STANDARD IOL: Lenses approved by the FDA. Used in our industry for several decades. They are designed to provide excellent distance vision. Patient will need glasses for reading, computer and driving.
b) PREMIUM ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY IOL: These lenses are also FDA approved. Reduce astigmatism and or presbyopia. They are engineered to work like the eye’s natural lens and patients enjoy a fuller range of vision. Near, intermediate and distance vision. This minimizes the need for glasses or contact lenses.
During the Pre-Operative consultation we discuss the different IOL options, (Presbyopic-Crystalens, Toric-Astigmatic lenses, Multifocal lenses) and make recommendations according to your lifestyle.
