Several different types of intraocular lenses may be used to replace the eye’s natural lens. This acrylic intraocular lens is very small and attaches directly to the eye during surgery. A single-focus lens can be implanted within the eye, providing clear distance vision, but will require eyeglasses for for near and intermediate tasks, such as looking at a cell phone, wrist watch or dashboard, and for astigmatism correction.
To reduce dependency on glasses after cataract surgery, a multifocal intraocular lens can be implanted into the eye. Over 70% of people with this type of lens in each eye do not need to wear glasses after surgery.
Choosing the Vision You Want for the Rest of Your Life
Recent advances in IOL technology give cataract patients the option of choosing advanced lens implants that provide a fuller range of vision, unlike the single-focus design of a monofocal lens. Our premium lenses, ReSTOR® and Toric® are designed to improve your vision to see near, far and at all ranges in between, along with one-step correction of astigmatism to improve your distance vision.
