Many Cataract Patients today are choosing to upgrade to one of the Advanced Technology Lenses that can provide a full range of vision, from near to distant. These Advanced Lenses can potentially eliminate one’s dependence on glasses for most activities such as driving, reading, and computer work.
Some Common Lens Options:
Symphony™ Lens is an extended depth of focus Lens which provides high- quality, continuous vision — from near to far and points in between — and may reduce the overall wearing of glasses.
Tecnis™ Multifocal Lens – An intraocular (inside the eye) lens implant, this is similar like a bifocal or trifocal lens in your glasses, that provide clarity of vision at more than one distance.
Tecnis™ Toric Lens – An intraocular lens implant that is designed to correct astigmatism.
Blended/Monovision vision is a sophisticated eye treatment which rectifies short sightedness in one eye and long sightedness in the other eye. Primarily this treatment is for a condition called presbyopia, which is a progressive loss of the ability to focus on nearby objects.
Monovision– A compromise between far and near vision in which one eye is fully corrected for distance and the other eye is corrected for seeing up close.
Blended Vision– Blended or targeted vision is modified monovision and is set somewhere between distance and near.
How do I decide which is the best lens for me?
After a thorough eye examination of your individual needs, your doctor can help you decide which lens is right for your lifestyle.
Do Advanced Technology Lenses cost more?
Medicare and private insurance companies will only pay for single vision lenses so there is an additional non-covered fee for each of the Advance Technology Lenses we offer.
What will my vision be like after surgery?
Your distance vision will usually be good within a day or two after surgery. It will take a month or so for you to reach their full focusing potential.
