Premium Cataract Surgery with Intraocular Lens Implants in Dallas, Texas
Get Intraocular Lens Implants in Dallas
Many cataract patients, in addition to suffering from either nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, also suffer from presbyopia. Presbyopia is a condition in which the natural lens becomes stiffer with age, reducing its ability to focus or accommodate. Loss of accommodation diminishes the ability to do near tasks such as reading.
Before the premium intraocular lens (IOL), patients were unable to see clearly at both near and far distances without the use of eyeglasses or contact lenses. Early lens implants were monofocal, meaning that they had only one focal point and could not adjust to varying distances. There are now various intraocular lens options available for cataract patients.

Premium IOL Options
New advances in technology have allowed for the development of a variety of special intraocular lenses. Aspheric intraocular lenses maximize contrast sensitivity, which is the best measurement of high-quality vision.
Toric intraocular lenses are used to precisely correct astigmatism. Multifocal lenses do not accommodate, but they do focus images at both near and far ranges. Extended Range of Vision IOLs (Symfony) are new options to correct presbyopia by providing a continuous range of vision with fewer side effects of glare and halos.
The Symfony Toric lens can also correct astigmatism. Crystalenses are advertised as providing a limited amount of accommodation. A technique traditionally called monovision and now termed ‘blended vision’ is often used to reduce the use of reading glasses.
It is important to realize that every person is unique. We earnestly try to determine which intraocular lens and method of vision correction is best for each person.
Your doctor will work with you to decide which lens is best for your individual eyes to help you enjoy long-lasting, clear vision at near, intermediate and far distances.
