Many cataract patients and their doctors choose to upgrade to one of our many high technology lenses that can provide a full range of vision, from near to distant. These highly advanced lenses can potentially eliminate a patient’s dependence on glasses.
At Cataract Consultants, we utilize several advanced technologies and special intraocular lenses, which can correct many vision problems. Some of the issues these lenses improve include nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, night vision, or the need for reading glasses or bifocals.
Advanced technology lenses.
Following a patient’s initial consultation, Dr. Harris will determine which lens is right for them and their vision goals. Some of our lens options include:
- Monofocal Lens
Traditional intraocular lenses are monofocal, meaning they only correct the problems associated with cataracts while not addressing additional visual impairment issues but provide patients with improved distance vision.
- Extended Depth of Focus Lens
An Extended Depth of Focus Lens provides a continuous range of high-quality vision – from near to far and points in between and may reduce the frequency of wearing glasses.
- Toric Astigmatism Correcting Lens
For patients with astigmatism, in addition to having a cataract, Dr. Harris will replace the cloudy cataract with a Toric lens. This uniquely designed lens can reduce or possibly eliminate corneal astigmatism following surgery.
- Multifocal Lens
For patients with a cataract plus issues with near- or farsightedness, difficulty reading, or requiring bifocals, Dr. Harris will replace the cloudy cataract with a multifocal lens. This multifocal lens is designed to provide the patient with a range of vision requiring less dependency upon glasses.
- Limbal Relaxing Incisions
For patients with astigmatism. Performed during or after the cataract surgery to reduce astigmatism that will cause blurred vision after cataract surgery.
Bladeless Laser Cataract Surgery.
In addition to high technology lenses, at Cataracts Consultants we are pleased to offer high technology bladeless surgery.
