Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are permanent, replacement lenses placed in the eye following cataract removal. Similar to a camera lens, IOLs focus your vision and deliver a clear, crisp image.
Why Advanced Technology Lenses?
Advanced Technology Lenses are far more advanced than the standard lenses used for lens replacement.While standard lenses are effective in improving vision and delivering a clear image, premium lenses specifically correct astigmatism as well as distance, midrange, and near vision.
If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be a candidate for intraocular lenses.
There are multiple types of IOLs available for patients. Each IOL type corrects vision in a unique manner, targeting certain pre-existing eye conditions and vision capabilities.
Reduces or eliminates corneal astigmatism while greatly improving distance vision in patients.
Corrects vision by changing focus as the patient views objects at varying distances.
Assists patients in distance activities and helps lessen the dependent on glasses.
The PanOptix lens is the first and only trifocal intraocular lens available in the US, delivering a better range of vision for patients after surgery than traditional monofocal lenses.
The Vivity lens is the first and only non-diffractive extended depth of focus intraocular lens, delivering a improved range vision for patients after surgery than traditional monofocal lenses.
Talk to your doctor to see if advanced technology lenses are right for you.
