Cataract Lens Decisions: 4 Options to Choose From
- Posted on: Nov 15 2017
When you were a toddler, all you wanted to do was have choices. But as soon as you entered adulthood, you probably realized that having choices can sometimes only make life more difficult. Here at Keamy Eye and Laser Centre, we have a variety of lenses for patients to choose from when they elect to get cataract surgery. And although each lens is unique, we will help you choose the best one for you so that you can rest assured that you have made the right choice.
Option 1: ReStor Multifocal
The ReStor intraocular lens can be used to correct both cataracts and presbyopia. One of the main reasons that this multifocal lens is popular is that because only a small incision is made during surgery, no stitches are required!
Option 2: Technis Multifocal
The main goal of the Technis Multifocal lens is to provide patients with the vision that’s close to that of someone in their youth. The Technis Multifocal lens help patients to see at all distances with a 90% chance of never needing to wear reading glasses again. Additionally, this type of lens is popular because it allows patients to see objects in varying night such as at night, twilight, and in the rain, fog, and snow.
Option 3: Toric Lens
It used to be that patients who suffer from astigmatism couldn’t benefit from cataract surgery. However, the Toric Lens is designed to help correct astigmatism during cataract surgery— giving patients the ability to see without additional procedures like Lasik.
Option 4: Symfony & Symfony Toric Lens
The unique thing about Symfony and Symfony Toric Lenses is that they are the first and only extended range of vision intraocular lenses that work to treat presbyopia.
It’s great to have options— especially when it comes to your vision. During your initial consultation at Keamy Eye and Laser Centre, we will help you land on the lens that is right for you and your eyesight.
