Advanced Technology Lens Options

Selecting the Right Cataract Intraocular Lens Implant (IOL)



Today there is a wide variety of premium IOLs (or Intraocular Lenses) to choose from. The best IOL for you depends on many factors, including your lifestyle and your specific visual needs.

When choosing your lens it is always best to discuss what you desire for your vision with your doctor, to determine what option could be for you!

Are you ready to live FREE from glasses or contacts?


Premium intraocular lenses (IOL’s) are an advanced new option for patients who wish to reduce or eliminate their increased dependence on glasses or contact lenses due to cataracts or presbyopia. Premium IOL’s correct a full range of functional vision, so recipients can see at near, intermediate and distant intervals without the constant burden of glasses or contacts!

The First and Only Lens Adjusted Specifically For You After Cataract Surgery



Your eye doctor uses pre-surgery eye measurements to estimate the power and type of IOL he or she thinks will provide you with the best vision after surgery.

With the Light Adjustable Lens, you will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision to better match your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. This optimization is done by your eye doctor after lens implantation through a series of light treatment procedures that take only a few minutes. In a FDA study of 600 subjects, those who received the LAL were twice as likely (as those who received a standard monofocal IOL) to achieve 20/20 vision without glasses.

The Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photo-sensitive material that changes the power of your implanted lens in response to UV light, increasing the likelihood that you will achieve your desired vision after cataract surgery.

If you select the Light Adjustable Lens, the first step is to have your cataract safely removed and the adjustable IOL implanted. The cataract removal and IOL implantation procedure are the same as if you selected a non-adjustable IOL.


Light Treatments


To receive the light treatment, you will be placed in front of the Light Delivery Device, which will noninvasive deliver the UV light to your Light Adjustable Lens.

Between 2 and 4 total light treatments, each lasting approximately 90 seconds and separated by approximately 3 days are required. The total number of light treatments is based on achievement of the best outcome possible. For the first time ever, you can have confidence that your result will meet your specific visual needs and criteria.

UV Light and Protective Eyewear

The sun is the primary natural source of UV light, and artificial sources of UV light are safely used in many medical and ophthalmic treatments. However, as exposure to indoor and outdoor sources of UV light can cause uncontrolled changes to the Light Adjustable Lens- you will be provided with UV protective glasses to wear during all waking hours (from time of lens implantation until after the last light treatment is completed).
Glasses may be removed when sleeping, and may be temporarily removed when showering, washing your face, or applying eye drops as long as you are not exposed to direct sunlight. 24 hours after the final light treatment, no further changes can be made to the implanted LAL, and you can remove the UV protective glasses and enjoy your custom vision.
 
 

AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Lens is the first and only trifocal lens in the U.S. that provides an outstanding range of vision without blurry zones, so you can focus without straining.

The PanOptix IOL is equipped with advanced Enlighten Optical Technology, a proprietary design that optimizes intermediate without compromising exceptional near and distance vision. The unique diffractive structure allows the lens to transmit 88% of light to retina at a 3mm pupil size for exceptionally high light utilization! Enlighten Optical Technology helps reduce dependency on pupil size in different lighting conditions.
To make it possible to achieve 20/20 near, intermediate and distance vision, Alcon reimagined multifocal performance. By creating a new focal point and redirecting the new focal point's light energy to distance, this created 3 optimized focal points! The result is visual performance that breaks FREE from traditional correction. With the PanOptix IOL it is now possible for patients to achieve visual acuity of 20/20 at near, intermediate and distance.

Imagine how you could use clear vision...
