Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are medical devices implanted in the eye during cataract surgery to replace the natural lens. Today with advances in technology, a wide variety of premium lens implants are available to help reduce your dependence on glasses and contacts. A consultation with Dr. Pesavento will help determine if you are a good candidate for these specialty lenses.
Dr. Pesavento has experience and offers the following premium lens implants.
- Acrysof IQ ® Toric
- The Acrysof IQ ® toric lens is designed to reduce and correct astigmatism. This can help patients with astigmatism function without glasses for their distance vision
- Acrysof IQ ® ReSTOR ®
- This breakthrough lens uses an innovative optical technology called apodization to help restore a full range of vision without glasses. Most patients with ReSTOR ® lenses can drive a car, work on the computer, and read without glasses. Not everyone is a good candidate and this will be determined during you preoperative consultation.
- Tecnis ® Multifocal
- The Tecnis ® Multifocal provides a range of vision using diffractive optics. This helps patients be spectacle free for a wide range of vision tasks.
- Crystalens ®
- Unlike the multifocal lenses, Crystalens ® is designed with flexible hinges that enable it to move in response to the eyes focusing muscles. This is similar to how the natural lens works. It increases your range of vision with excellent distance and intermediate vision. Some patients will still require low power readers for smaller print.
