Premium Lens Implants

Cataracts Surgery DiagramThe procedure for removal of the natural lens, and implantation of a premium multifocal lens during cataract surgery does not differ from cataract surgery using a standard monofocal lens. During surgery, the cloudy, natural lens of the eye is removed. It is then replaced with an artificial lens implant calculated specifically for the necessary amount of nearsightedness or farsightedness. If a patient is seeking the added benefit of being able to see at a range of distances after surgery without the need for glasses, a premium intraocular lens is a great option. The surgeons at the Shepherd Eye Center perform more cataract surgeries than anyone else in Nevada and therefore, have extensive experience to accurately recommend this surgery upgrade to those patients it will benefit the most. This exciting advancement in lens technology allows patients to see both distance and near, even for those patients over the age of forty who might otherwise need bifocals or reading glasses.

How does the Multifocal IOL work?

As we perform daily activities such as reading, watching television or working at the computer, our eyes are constantly focusing on objects at varying distances – up close, far away and everything in-between. The ability to quickly change focus throughout this range of vision is called accommodation. Unfortunately, this ability diminishes, as we grow older, causing us to become dependent on bifocals or reading glasses. Premium lenses are designed using technology that has been used for years in microscopes and telescopes to improve image quality and reduce the need for glasses following cataract surgery.
