All about Premium Intraocular lenses – IOL
At Bay Area Eye Institute, we offer the most modern premium intraocular lenses (IOL’s) as an option during your cataract surgery.
Traditional IOLs are set to generally focus at one distance — typically either “near” or “far” — but not both. “Premium” IOLs, or multifocal IOLs, provide the ability to see at various distances without the need for correction. This full range of vision will decrease your dependency on glasses.
The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL
These trifocal IOLs are a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide.
The PanOptix® Trifocal family of IOLs are types of multifocal lenses (sometimes called “presbyopia-correcting IOLs”) designed to allow for clear distance, intermediate, and near vision with the potential to be more independent of the need to use glasses for daily tasks.
The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOL may also eliminate, in many cases, the need for limbal relaxing incisions, a technique in which incisions are made at the edge of the cornea to cause it to heal in a more spherical shape.
The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL
AcrySof® IQ IOLS are the most widely used lenses in the world, with over 100 million used. The AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® Toric IOL +2.5 D Multifocal Toric with ACTIVEFOCUSTM optical design IOLs are the only lenses that are 100 percent dedicated to crisp, sharp distance vision.
AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® +3.0 D Multifocal Toric IOLs provide excellent distance vision but are also designed to provide near distance vision.
Tecnis Symfony® IOL
The TECNIS Symfony® IOL mitigates the effects of presbyopia so we can
empower our patients to see clearly across the full range of vision. Delivering excellent uncorrected visual acuity (VA) at all distances, the TECNIS Symfony® IOL allows our patients to see clearly across a full range of vision.
This high-tech IOL delivers the visual quality that allows our patients with and without astigmatism to see clearly in any lighting condition. Patients enjoy high-quality distance vision in the presence of astigmatism. This IOL’s pupil-independent performance enables optimal performance in any lighting condition.
Tecnis Symfony® Toric IOL
The TECNIS Symfony® Toric IOL is designed to give patients vivid, seamless vision, the TECNIS Symfony® Toric Extended Depth of Focus IOL addresses both presbyopia and astigmatism while delivering a full range of continuous vision. This IOL gives patients seamless brilliance across the full range of vision. The TECNIS Symfony® Toric IOL delivers excellent uncorrected visual acuity at all distances.
The TECNIS Symfony® Toric IOL delivers the same range of continuous vision as the TECNIS Symfony® IOL.
Rather than splitting light into distinct focal points, the TECNIS Symfony® Toric IOL elongates focus, resulting in an increased depth of field. This empowers Dr. Berger to deliver a full range of continuous vision while maintaining high image contrast.
