How to choose the best premium lens implant for your lifestyle.
For adults that have been diagnosed with a cataract, a premium lens implant (IOL), or lifestyle lens, can allow patients to no longer need glasses or contacts to see at a variety of distances. Some lenses are better for patients that drive more at night while other lenses might be a better fit for patients who spend more time working on the computer or reading.
When you come see your Wellish Vision Institute specialist for your initial cataract exam, he or she will ask a series of lifestyle questions about your career, hobbies, daily activities, and what type of visual results you are seeking. These will help your doctor determine which premium lens implant might benefit you the best. In addition, your eye doctor will perform a series of tests to ensure you would be a good candidate for a premium lens.
Multifocal, Accommodating and Toric IOLs
This lifestyle lens allows for clear vision at far, near and intermediate distances, often with little to no need for glasses. These advanced technology IOLs can even correct many other vision problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism and presbyopia.
The Alcon AcrySof ReSTOR® Bifocal Lens Implant
The Alcon AcrySof ReSTOR® IOL is a multifocal lens designed to deliver excellent vision results over a range of distances. The AcrySof ReSTOR lens allows patients to enjoy activities including cooking, reading, watching TV, shopping, golfing, and much more without the need for glasses.
Alcon AcrySof® Toric for Astigmatism
The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL is a lifestyle lens option for patients with astigmatism. The Alcon AcrySof ®Toric lens corrects both the cataract and astigmatism, resulting in greater visual results. The Toric lens implant cannot correct presbyopia and as a result, bifocals or glasses may be required for computer use or reading.
