REJUVENATE YOUR VISION
Intraocular Lens Options
At Cataract Consultants, we utilize several types of special intraocular lenses, which can potentially correct problems such as nearsightedness, farsightedness, astigmatism, night vision or the need for reading glasses or bifocals. Following your initial consultation, Dr. Harris will determine which lens is right for you.
Traditional intraocular lenses are monofocal, meaning they only correct the problems associated with cataract, while not addressing additional visual impairment issues and provide you with improved distance vision.
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.
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 the astigmatism that will cause blurred vision after cataract surgery.
