Premium IOLs

CrystaLens premium IOL implant Tampa Bay, Florida"While most other cataract surgeons still insert intraocular lenses (IOL) that come in .5 Diopter steps, I insist on using the Lenstec Softec HD which comes in finer .25 Diopter steps. Although industry standards permit tolerances of .400 Diopter, the Softec HD is produced with tighter tolerances of .125 Diopter.

This allows me to select an IOL that is a better fit for your eye. I like to use the shoe analogy when talking about the benefits of this lens. Have you ever tried on a size 9 shoe but it was a little too small? Next you tried on a size 9 1/2 but it was a little too big. What if you had the option of a 9 1/4? That would be just right!"
