Lens Options

Different Lenses for Different Needs

When your cataract is removed, a new lens is placed inside of your eye. Unlike many years ago, today you have different lens options to choose from. Lens selection can be frustrating because of these multiple options. Two important factors to consider when choosing your artificial lens; type and power of the lens. Personal factors to consider when choosing your lens:

  • Daily activities that you would like to do without glasses or contacts is possible?
  • Can you afford the higher lens option?
  • How far would you like to see most clearly without glasses or contacts?
  • Have you had LASIK eye surgery in the past?

Below are listed four different lens options you can choose from.

PanOptix® Trifocal IOL Multifocal Lens

The PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the PanOptix® Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide.

Tecnis AMO Multifocal Lens

An intraocular (inside the eye) lens implant, similar to a bifocal or trifocal lens in your glasses, that provide clarity of vision at more than one distance.

Light Adjustable Lens™

The Light Adjustable Lens is the only adjustable intraocular lens (IOL) available that allows optimization of your vision after lens implantation and healing. If you and your doctor select the Light Adjustable Lens, the first step is to have your cataract safely removed and the adjustable IOL implanted. The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure is the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL.

Symfony Lens

Extended depth of focus Lens provide high-quality, continuous vision — from near to far and points in between — and may reduce the overall wearing of glasses.

AAO 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.

AMO Tecnis Toric Lens

An intraocular lens implant that is designed to correct astigmatism.
