Cataract Lens Implants

High Quality Vision at All Distances is Now Possible for Cataract Patients

After living with cataracts for years, you may think that regaining youthful vision is just a dream. But with the lens replacement options available today, that dream may become a reality.

During cataract surgery in Florence, SC, your cloudy lens is removed and a new Intraocular Lens (IOL) is inserted. In the past, patients had only one option, but today you are in control of how your vision will change after cataract surgery. Replacement lens options include:

How Cataract Surgery Can Affect Reading Vision

Most people over age 40 begin to experience the effects of presbyopia: difficulty seeing up close without the aid of reading glasses, bifocals or trifocals. This age-related condition is due to a hardening of the lens inside the eye, making it difficult for the eye’s muscles to change the shape of the lens and produce a change in focus.

Multifocal IOLs can remedy both cataracts and reading vision. Also known as Lifestyle Lenses, the full range of vision provided by these lenses allows you to read and see clearly in the distance, at near and at most distances in-between, with little or no dependence on glasses or contact lenses. It is almost like having a bifocal or progressive lens inside your eye instead of bifocals resting on your nose.

This is a 10-15 minute procedure that is performed on one eye at a time. If you have cataracts in both eyes, you will be asked to return for the second procedure after your first eye has healed, approximately 2 weeks later.

Lens Implants Without Cataracts

If you do not have cataracts, but wearing glasses, reading glasses or contacts are a significant problem for you, a procedure called Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) can be used to remove your clear lens and replace it with a multifocal IOL.
