If you want to have crisp, clear vision after cataract surgery, you should consider getting premium intraocular lenses (IOLs). Over the years, there have been several technological advancements that now allow IOLs to address a wide array of vision issues. Whether you want to see clearly at a distance or improve your range of vision, our eye doctors can help find a solution that meets your needs.
Premium IOLs have several advantages over traditional intraocular lenses, including:
- Better range of vision
- Multifocal capabilities
- Improved vision quality in different lighting
In addition to these benefits, some premium IOLs can also help correct astigmatism. Since there are many lenses to choose from, it is important to weigh your options. When deciding which premium IOL to use, you should always consider:
- Your day-to-day activities
- Whether you want to continue wearing glasses
- Your ability to afford premium lenses
While premium multifocal IOLs allow you to see at multiple distances without glasses, they are not covered by most insurance plans. As a result, you may have to pay out of pocket for certain premium lenses. However, many patients who want to get rid of their glasses find the additional cost a worthy investment.
At Kirk Eye Center, we offer three types of premium IOLs: ReSTOR®, Tecnis®, and Toric®. The first two types are multifocal IOLs which make it easier to see objects at several distances. However, Tecnis® lenses also allow you to see better in different light conditions. The final premium IOL we offer, Toric®, is a monofocal lens that corrects astigmatism and either nearsightedness or farsightedness. At your initial appointment, one of our experienced eye doctors can go through each of these options with you and discuss their specific benefits in greater detail.
