Griffin First to Implant Eyhance

Ophthalmic Surgeon, Neil B. Griffin, M.D. is the first ophthalmologist in the Myrtle Beach area to implant the Eyhance® Intraocular lens for cataract surgery. Recently the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved the Tecnis Eyhance® and Eyhance Toric II intraocular lenses for implantation in cataract patients in the United States. The new refractive surface design slightly increases the depth of focus compared to a standard monofocal.

The lens can improve intermediate vision, while distance vision remains similar with that achieved in a standard monofocal. Vision Eyhance® lenses by Johnson and Jonson is said to deliver 30 percent better image contrast in low light at 5 mm than a typical monofocal lens.

Both Eyhance® lenses are available in 0.5-D increments ranging from +5 D to +34 D.  These lenses are not classified as extended depth-of-focus lenses in the United States.  However, the lens design does provide more intermediate vision and slightly more near vision than a standard monofocal.
