LENS IMPLANTS FOR ASTIGMATISM
THE ACRYSOF® TORIC IOL
Astigmatism is an optical condition that can blur vision at both distance and near. Until recently, patients with significant amounts of astigmatism were forced to still depend on glasses or contacts after cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange surgery to improve their vision. Now, our physicians in Stuart can provide astigmatism treatments as well, so that you may not need glasses after your surgery.
The AcrySof® Toric Intraocular Lens has advanced technology that can eliminate the cataracts that cloud your vision and correct the astigmatism that distorts your vision all at the same time. In a recent FDA study 97% of patients were able to eliminate the need for glasses to see in the distance and achieved 20/25 or better. Patients enjoy activities like sports, driving, or watching T.V. and movies without the need for contacts or glasses.
MULTIFOCAL LENS IMPLANTS
PanOptix Trifocal Lens implant is for “far away, intermediate and near vision”. The PanOptix Lens gives you a full range of vision and reduces your need to wear glasses. See effortlessly without blurry zones.
VIVITY LENS IMPLANT
The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision Lens allows you to see clearly at the crucial far and intermediate distances while still providing functional near vision.
The Restor Multifocal Intraocular Lens Implant corrects vision for near, intermediate and far distances. The lens will correct vision far away, up close and all distances in between. In most cases, this lens eliminates the need for glasses after cataract surgery. The multi focal implants are in many ways similar to bifocal and multifocal contacts. Because multifocal lenses are implanted inside the eye, they don’t require any care and routine replacement like contact lenses do. Our cataract surgeons in Port St. Lucie and Stuart can discuss your lens options with you so you can make the most informed decision.
TRADITIONAL LENS IMPLANTS
Traditional intraocular lenses have a spherical optical design, meaning the front surface is uniformly curved from the center of the lens to its periphery. A spherical intraocular lens can induce minor optical imperfections which can affect quality of vision, particularly in low-light conditions such as driving at night.
Premium lenses, on the other hand, match more closely the shape and optical quality of the eye’s natural lens, and thereby can provide sharper vision — especially in low light conditions and for people with large pupils.
The latest innovation in cataract surgery is now available with Dr. Ronald Frenkel. The ORA System,state-of-the-art “smart” eye surgery allows your expert surgeon Dr. Frenkel to take precise measurements and evaluate accuracy during the procedure. If needed, he can instantly make any adjustments, such as refining the incisions, fine-tuning the power of the Intraocular Lens implant or even performing a lens exchange if the pre-selected lens isn’t a perfect fit. Fully customizing the entire procedure to each patient’s eyes helps ensure optimum clarity and focus, making the ORA System instrumental in achieving the best outcomes for cataract surgery.
