Premium Lenses

Premium Lenses Las VegasIf you are looking to see even better after cataract surgery, advances in technology have provided our patients with new premium intraocular lens options. For the first 30 years of cataract surgery, monofocal lens implants were the only option available. They provide excellent vision, but only at one distance. Patients who choose to have monofocal lens implants will typically be able to see well at a distance, but will still require reading glasses after surgery. The monofocal lens will not correct intermediate (or arms-length vision), nor do these lens implants correct near vision.

The new premium lenses may give you a degree of independence from your eyeglasses after cataract surgery.

There are three categories of premium lens implants, and all of the premium lens implants differ based on the type of vision they provide:

  • Multifocal - This lens enables patients to see at near, far, and intermediate distances after cataract surgery. The two major brand names of multifocal lenses are AcrySof ReSTOR IOL by Alcon, and Tecnis by AMO.
  • Toric - If you have significant astigmatism, a refractive error where people are unable to see objects clearly from a distance or up close, and have been diagnosed with cataracts, toric intraocular lens implants may be the best premium lens option for you.
  • Accommodating lens implants - This lens enables you to be able to read, see at a distance and see everything in between. Crystalens is the most common accommodating lens.
