Intraocular Lens Implants
Modern Advances in Intraocular Lenses
Current intraocular foldable lens technology has significantly improved both the quality and accuracy of vision after cataract surgery.
Previous lens technology was limited in its ability to improve distance vision and often not accurately.
Modern intraocular lens technology can offer both clearer distance vision and for some near vision as well.
Some of these lenses are:
Tecnis Aspheric lens
Tecnis Toric lens
Tecnis Multifocal lens
Zeiss Bitoric lens
Zeiss Acrilisa Multifocal lens
Zeiss Acrlisa Toric Multifocal lens
Zeiss Acrlisa Trifocal lens
Acrysof IQ Aspheric lens
Acrysof IQ Toric lens
Acrysof IQ ReSTOR lens
Toric Intraocular Lenses
Modern implants known as Toric Lenses, to correct preexisting corneal astigmatism are now available.
These Toric lenses may reduce or eliminate the need for distance glasses after cataract surgery.
The astigmatism arises from having an irregularly shaped cornea.
Once the Toric lens is implanted and precisely aligned inside the eye it offsets the distortion of the eyes astigmatism.
This allows the light entering your eye to focus more precisely onto the retina following your surgery.
These implants are specifically selected by Dr. Binetter to correct your astigmatism.
Multifocal Intraocular Lenses
Modern Multifocal Lenses are available for implantation during cataract surgery
Most intraocular lenses only allow focus at a single distance, traditionally designed to be far away to allow good distance vision.These lenses were known as single focus or Monofocal lenses.
Multifocal Lenses were designed to reduce the symptoms of Presbyopia.(Presbyopia is a reduction in the ability to focus clearly, up close, in those over the age of 45).
These Multifocal Lenses can reduce or eliminate the need for reading glasses after cataract surgery.
Dr. Binetter has extensive experience implanting all of these lenses and can help you determine which lens is suitable for your eye and will best meet your needs.
