Premium Lens Implants
A wide range of replacement lenses are available to cataract patients, each offering different advantages for post-surgery vision. The most effective lens to use depends on the patient's individual preferences and goals for their vision. The lenses eliminate the need for glasses or contacts after cataract surgery, providing most patients with convenient, effective results for their specific vision conditions.
Multifocal Intraocular Lenses (IOLS)
AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Lens is the first and only trifocal lens in the U.S. that provides an outstanding range of vision without blurry zones, so you can focus without straining.
The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide.
There is a chance that you still may need glasses for distance, intermediate, and/or near vision. You will get the full benefit of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL when it is placed in both eyes.
TECNIS Symfony® IOL
TECNIS Symfony® extended depth-of-focus IOLs not only address presbyopia as part of cataract surgery, they also allow you to see life seamlessly through high-quality, continuous vision. The full range of clarity these lenses provide is available for patients both with and without astigmatism, and may reduce the frequency of wearing glasses. Extended depth-of-focus IOLs deliver clarity across the full range of vision.
Additional Benefits of the TECNIS Symfony® IOL:
- Provide excellent distance vision for reading street signs and intermediate vision for the computer, with improved near vision.
- Support continuous, high-contrast vision, which can be helpful in low-light scenarios.
- Give you sharp, continuous vision, but you may need reading glasses for small print.
TECNIS Symfony® Toric IOL
TECNIS Symfony® Toric lenses offer the opportunity to address both presbyopia and astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery by providing a continuous range of focus, excellent distance, and intermediate vision with improved near vision, while also addressing astigmatism, for overall less glasses wear. Extended depth-of-focus Toric IOLs provide a full range of focus with astigmatism correction.
Intraocular lenses are used during cataract surgery to replace the damaged lens with an implant that clears up and corrects vision, often leaving patients with little to no dependence on glasses.
Up until now, patients with astigmatism did not have the same opportunities that other cataract patients have had in correcting their condition with the IOL lenses that are available. Typically, the astigmatic patient would need an additional surgical procedure, such as refractive surgery or LASIK, to correct their vision after the procedure. If the patient did not want to undergo another surgical procedure, the only option for correction would be the use of either contact lenses or glasses to address their astigmatism.
Toric IOLs are able to accommodate for the condition of astigmatism. Toric IOLs are specially designed to correct astigmatism along with overall vision during cataract surgery, offering complete vision correction.
