Benefits of Premium Lens Implants

When you have cataract surgery, we remove your eye’s natural lens and replace it with an artificial one. This is typically done in older patients, however cataracts can also develop in younger people for a variety of reasons, and even those who haven’t developed cataracts can benefit from having an artificial lens implanted. A premium lens implant can simultaneously treat cataracts and address vision impairments like nearsightedness, farsightedness, presbyopia, and astigmatism. Benefits of Premium Lens Implants can greatly reduce your dependence on visual aids after the procedure and provide a higher quality of life.More info :https://www.metroeyemd.com/premium-lens-implants.php

What is the difference between standard lens and premium lens?

Many of our cataract patients choose to upgrade their standard intraocular lenses (IOLs) to a premium option. While these implants aren’t covered by insurance, they can offer you compelling benefits and save you money in the long run by reducing or eliminating your need for glasses and contacts.

The different types of premium IOLs available are multifocal, accommodative, and toric. The first two function similar to your natural lenses by refracting light to multiple distances, while the toric IOL corrects astigmatism as well as other refractive errors.

Choosing to receive a premium IOL after cataract surgery can dramatically reduce or eliminate your need for contact lenses and glasses. You can see better at varying distances and enjoy activities like golfing, swimming, and sailing without the limitations of your vision or prescription lenses. Contact us today to schedule your cataract screening and find out which premium IOL would be right for you.
