Lens implants, also referred to as intraocular lenses or IOLs, are placed in the eye during cataract surgery to restore and even improve focus following the procedure. They may be used to help reduce the need for glasses in patients with pre-existing near-sightedness, far-sightedness, or astigmatism. Advanced multifocal implants can be used to allow some patients to see at both distance and near with minimal dependence on bifocals or reading glasses.

Our Ophthalmic Surgeons are lens implant specialists offering a full range of options to our patients with truly customized treatments. They will evaluate your individual needs during a consultation. After extensive computerized analysis of your eyes’ medical and focusing characteristics they will talk with you about the many lens implant options available. A personalized treatment plan will be designed to help achieve the best quality of vision tailored to your lifestyle. All of the lens options below may be combined with the LenSx® Laser Assisted Cataract Surgery.

1. ELIMINATE THE NEED FOR GLASSES with our Multifocal Implants
