Premium Lens Implants

Choosing the Lens that Best Fits Your Lifestyle

An intraocular lens (IOL) is a small, foldable lens that is inserted into the eye and replaces the natural lens that is removed during cataract surgery. A monofocal lens will correct the vision at one distance. A multifocal lens can give a wide range of vision; near, intermediate and far, with usually very little need for glasses. Toric lenses are used to correct astigmatism and can increase the chance that you will not need glasses for clear distance vision following surgery.

There is also a toric multifocal lens, which corrects astigmatism and provides a wide range of vision. Choosing your lens, a monofocal vs. multifocal vs. toric vs. toric multifocal and the type of cataract surgery that you choose, laser vs. manual are significant decisions that will affect how you see every day for the rest of your life.

Not everyone is a good candidate for the implanted lens they desire or the one that a friend or family member recommended. Advanced diagnostic testing will be performed to determine if there are any irregularities in your cornea or retina. These advanced measurements are critical in helping us prepare your treatment plan. Once we understand your visual goals, specific recommendations will be made on the type of surgery, blades vs. conventional and the type of lens, premium vs. standard that will result in the best visual outcome for you.
