Advanced Cataract Surgery with Specialty Lenses
Cataract surgery has long been among the safest and most effective surgical procedures of any kind. Now, with the development of intraocular lenses which allow both near and distance vision with much less dependency on glasses, we can offer selected patients this exciting advance over standard "distance-only" lens implants.
The majority of patients who have chosen specialty IOLs are absolutely amazed with the results and would recommend the procedure to their friends and family who have cataracts.
Crystalens© accomodating intraocular lenses and AcrySof© ReStor© multifocal intraocular lenses are two of the "value-added" lenses we offer that may be right for you.
For patients with astigmatism who are having cataract surgery, you now have an additional option; an IOL that makes it possible to treat the cataract and correct your astigmatism at the same time. These IOLs are called Toric IOLs.
If you want to learn more about the life changing procedures involved in modern cataract surgery, we will be happy to answer all your questions. We also recommend viewing a very informative website sponsored by the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons.
