Lifestyle Lens Options
Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are tiny, artificial lenses for the eye. These lenses replace the eye’s natural, cloudy lens, which cannot be seen or felt by the patient and become a permanent part of the eye. With advances in lens technology, it’s now possible to have intraocular lenses (IOLs) implanted to correct astigmatism and eliminate or lessen the need for bi-focal and reading glasses.
Holcomb Laser Center offers the latest in implantable lens options. Contact us to learn more about the broad range of options available and to find the best lens for you.
- The TECNIS®, Alcon PanOptix and Acrysof Multifocal lenses are designed to provide patients with high-quality near and far vision in any light condition, allowing you to see the both big picture and fine detail.
- The Crystalens AO Lens is an excellent option for those who are interested in distance or night vision. You’ll still need reading glasses, but won’t lose your intermediate vision.
- Monofocal Aspheric Lenses are designed to provide better contrast sensitivity, or how well you see beyond details on a standard eye chart. Holcomb Laser Center offers the TECNIS® Monofocal IOL, which provides better contrast sensitivity and improves the ability to see in varying light conditions, such as rain, snow, fog, twilight and nighttime darkness.
- Alcon and Vivity Toric IOLs both correct astigmatism and recapture quality distance vision in one step. Until their recent introduction, candidates for IOLs could only have nearsightedness and farsightedness corrected during cataract surgery. Toric IOLs provide the freedom from glasses you’re looking for while correcting astigmatism.
