What are the Cataract IOLs (Intraocular Lenses) options

A cataract is a clouding of your natural lens. During cataract surgery, your eye surgeon will remove your natural lens and replace it with an intraocular lens. Today, there are many options to correct your vision at the same time of cataract surgery reducing or eliminating the need for glasses.

What are cataract IOLs? IOL stands for intraocular lenses, and are specially made to fit your eyes after cataract surgery. Intraocular lenses replace your natural lens, which can be afflicted with cataracts as you age, causing vision impairments. When this happens, an ophthalmologist will measure your eye, and craft a custom fit replacement lens (IOL).

These artificial lenses are made of clear plastic, silicone, or acrylic materials, and are coated with UV blocking substances. At LaserCare Eye Center, we offer a wide array of IOL types to suit the different needs of our patients.

Panoptix Trifocal IOL:

For many years, both patients and ophthalmologists have wanted a trifocal lens that could be implanted at the time of cataract surgery. The ideal trifocal lens would correct vision at near, intermediate, and far distances for the greatest breadth of spectacle-free vision.

ReSTOR Lens:

Cataract Comparison EyesReSTOR lenses are multifocal lenses. These types of lenses act in the same way that bifocal lenses on glasses work, in that they allow you to see things at different distances through various areas on the surface of the lens. Unlike other multifocal lenses though, ReSTOR is specially designed to be diffractive, refractive, and apodized. The lens allows light to pass through depending on the contractions of your pupils. The only downside to ReSTOR is that it can take some time (in some cases up to a few months) for your brain to adapt to your new source of vision.

Toric Lens Implant:

Toric lenses are mono-focal lenses that correct both cataracts and astigmatism, unlike the majority of other lens types that only correct issues related to cataracts. The major disadvantage to these types of lenses is that they only correct vision for one distance, meaning that reading glasses will still be needed for most patients.

Crystalens:

Crystalens is an accommodating lens. Accommodating lenses are extremely flexible lenses that mimic your natural lens flexibility. Typically, your eye muscles bend your natural lens to allow it to focus on a wide range of distances. Crystalens can flex with those same muscles, allowing the patient not to need reading glasses in many cases. Not all patients are eligible for Crystalens, so see our page here to read more.

Tecnis Symfony Lenses:

While Toric lenses are for people with astigmatism, Tecnis Symfony is an IOL designed to help patients suffering from Presbyopia, which is an age-related form of farsightedness. Tecnis Symfony can also help with astigmatism too if the presbyopia patient has that condition as well. The only drawback to the Symfony lens is that they do not handle close-range distances well, and will necessitate reading glasses.

Monofocal Lenses:

These lenses are the most basic replacement lenses you can use for cataract surgery. Monofocal lenses offer no benefits over any other type beyond their price. They won’t correct astigmatism and will necessitate various pairs of glasses for any daily task. They are rarely ever recommended for patients.

Those are the five different types of IOLs that we offer at LaserCare Eye Center. Our highly trained, knowledgeable staff and expert M.D.s will help you choose the lens that is right for your specific needs in dealing with cataracts.
