Lens Options

Your Vison Goals, Your LifestyleYou have an important decision to make about your vision. Today more then ever before, you have options for lens implants that meet your vision goals.

Throughout the day, you perform activities that require your eyes to focus at different distances. Think about the many activities that are important for your lifestyle and the area of focus that is required.

Premium Lens Options

Symfony and Symfony Toric

Best overall Distance, Intermediate and Near
Symfony IOL is the first lens of its kind to combine two unique technologies for outstanding visual performance. Elongating the focus of the eye provides continuous high-quality vision which may reduce the frequency of wearing glasses. By correcting chroma. tic aberration (color distortion) it provides sharp vision in all lighting conditions. The Symfony IOL provides the best distance, intermediate, and up-close vision. This IOL is available in both a Non-Toric version and a Toric version for patients with astigmatism.

Crystalens Advanced Optics Accommodating IOL and Trulign Toric

Distance, Intermediate and Near
Crystalens is an accommodating intraocular lens that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia — loss of near and intermediate vision. You probably noticed in your forties that you started to lose some of your up-close vision and had to start wearing reading glasses. Crystalens not only treats your cataract, it allows greater independence from glasses, especially for far distance and intermediate distances. It’s a patented aspherical optic gives a very natural clarity of vision post operatively. It does so by recreating accommodation similar to your eye’s natural lens. The unique Crystalens is designed to allow you to enjoy a fuller, more natural range of vision for most activities.

Multifocal IOL

Distance and Near
Today, your cataract surgeon is able to offer you the choice of a multifocal lens implant. A multifocal lens implant provides excellent vision after cataract surgery at a variety of distances. Multifocal lens implants correct both your distance vision and your presbyopia after cataract surgery. For the vast majority of patients, having a multifocal lens implant means that you will be able to see at distances and up close without being dependent on glasses. So, patients choosing to have a multifocal lens implant will likely find that they can drive, watch television, read or do crafts-without the need for glasses. We feel that a multifocal IOL is the best choice, presently, for people who want excellent close vision without glasses after cataract surgery.

Toric Lens for Astigmatism

Distance
Many cataract patients suffer from astigmatism and have required glasses or contact lenses to drive or read for much of their adult lives to correct their astigmatism. Toric lens implants correct for astigmatism. Toric IOLs are placed in the patient’s eye during routine cataract surgery in the same manner as a monofocal implant. They often provide better vision with or without glasses post cataract surgery, in patients who have significant astigmatism.

NanoFLEX

Mid-Grade for Distance, some Intermediate
The nanoFLEX is “aspheric,” meaning it features an aspheric optic with a slight variable curve on its surface, so it better meets the corrective needs of your eye. Plus, it is the only IOL made from Collamer®, a pure collagen containing material that is “bio-compatible” with your body’s natural chemistry and contains 40% water — so it’s very similar to your eye’s natural crystalline lens. It also has important anti-reflective properties. The result? Sharper, clearer vision and far fewer occurrences of glare, halos, or poor night vision associated with other lenses or corrective procedures.

MonoFocal

Single vision distance
Prior to the new premium lens implant technologies enabling people to see at multiple distances the only option for lens implants after cataract surgery were known as MONOFOCAL IOL’s. For years patients would have monofocal lens implants but then require eyeglasses after cataract surgery. While in some cases, patients can focus adequately in the distance without glasses, most patients will wear bifocal glasses after implantation of a monofocal IOL.
