If you need cataract eye surgery, there are a variety of advanced technology lens implant options available. Advancements in lens technology have made it easier than ever to restore your vision, even after you have developed cataracts. Here are a few of the options that are available:
ReStor and Tecnis Multifocal IOL: These lenses are perfect for people who enjoy reading and crafts. They are designed to help maximize your up-close vision that is required for activities such as these.
Crystalens: If you have already had LASIK surgery and now require cataract surgery, this lens is suitable for you. It is also a great option for people who drive a lot at night or who want their best close vision on their desktop computer.
Toric Intraocular Lens: If you have astigmatism in addition to cataracts, this lens might be the most appropriate for you. It is designed to help improve distance vision.
These are just a few of the lens implant options that are available for cataract patients. Keep in mind that no two pairs of eyes are exactly the same, so different lenses work better in different situations. In some cases, even with implanted lenses, it may still be necessary to use glasses or contact lenses to achieve the desired level of vision. The best way to determine which lens option is the best option for you is to talk to an ophthalmologist about the options that are available and schedule an exam.
