Fuchs’ Dystrophy: One patient’s experience and the importance of choosing the right surgeon

Dr. Berger’s staff sat down with Barb and discussed the available options for IOLs. She learned that traditional “standard” IOLs are set to generally focus at one distance — typically either “intermediate” or “far” — but not both near AND far. These lenses are monofocal (also called single-focus) IOLs. Standard IOLs are included in the cost of cataract surgery with most medical insurance plans, including Barb’s.
