Premium Lens Implant Options
Cataract patients now have options for more independence from glasses at both near and far distances after cataract surgery! Previously, individuals suffering from cataracts had only a standard lens implant option after surgery. Now with advancements in lens technology, there are a number of premium intraocular lenses (IOL) available including trifocal, multifocal and toric implants, the light adjustable lens, and accommodative implants. Your doctor will help determine which IOL is best for you based on the unique characteristics of your eye and your lifestyle needs. We have highly qualified surgeons with state of the art lens technology to help you see better!
PanOptix Trifocal Lens
We are happy to announce the newest lens technology has arrived at our practice, the PanOptix Trifocal Lens by Alcon. To read more about it and watch some helpful patient videos, please click here. We were one of the first practices in South Florida to implant this lens! The PanOptix is clinically shown to deliver an exceptional combination of near, intermediate and distance vision while significantly reducing the need for glasses after surgery. Please call our office at 305-598-2020 to schedule an evaluation and determine which lens is best for you!
Multifocal Lens Implants
Multifocal Implants are designed to work with your pupil size to focus near and far reducing the dependence on reading glasses and bifocals.
Toric Lens Implants
Toric Implants make it possible to reduce or eliminate the effects of corneal astigmatism (difficulty focusing clearly)thereby reducing the need for glasses and improving the quality of vision.
The RXSight® Light Adjustable Lens is a high definition intraocular lens that lets patients experience their new vision following cataract surgery. Adjustments can be made to fine tune and optimize the vision – whether the patient wants exceptional vision for distance, wonderful vision for near, or a combination. For this procedure, patients wear UV Protective glasses (which we provide) during the first 4-6 weeks following surgery. The number of postop visits varies – and may be more – depending on the number of adjustments required. Once a final happy visual result has been achieved, there is a final visit where the lens undergoes a final “Lock In” to permanently maintain the power of the lens. Typically, by 5-6 weeks post-op, the lens is locked in, and people no longer need to wear the UV protective glasses.
Much like the Panoptix Trifocal lens, our surgeons here at the Center For Excellence in Eye Care were the first to debut the LAL technology in South Florida. The first case was January 9, 2020. Ideal patients for the technology are people who want the best precision possible and do not mind wearing UV protective glasses until it is time to adjust and lock-in their vision. This is especially good for patients who desire optimized vision for distance or near, or desire monovision or blended vision, in which one eye sees well at distance, and the other is focused to intermediate or near vision. And if you’re not sure about monovision but want to try it without your cataracts blurring your vision, the adjustability allows the monovision to generally be placed and/or reversed. The LAL lets patients try out their new vision in an adjustable fashion and optimize their final visual outcome.
Accommodative Lens Implants
Last but not least, we also offer Accommodative Implants which assume a flexed position in the eye to provide the depth of field needed to focus on objects at all distances.
