Cataract surgery has come a long way in the last few years. The surgical procedure is painless and quick. Apart from removing the damaged lens efficiently, surgeons can place an artificial intraocular lens in place of the natural one.
Technologists have come up with new intraocular lenses that can correct not just the cataract problem but also vision defects. You should know what premium lenses are and understand why you should get them.
In the past, standard lenses only allowed patients to see one distance. Premium lenses allow ophthalmologists to correct the cataract issue and treat vision problems such as astigmatism, myopia, and farsightedness. There are different types of premium lenses that help correct various vision issues.
There are different types of premium lenses available, and they fall into two main categories: multifocal and toric lenses. Multifocal lenses are IOLs that allow users to see both near and far distances. The aging process or presbyopia causes the eye lenses to harden, making it difficult to focus on near objects.
The multifocal lenses can help correct cataracts and presbyopia. Toric lenses are intraocular lenses that help correct astigmatism. If you are getting cataract surgery, you can get toric lenses to treat astigmatism at the same time. The doctors at Fier Eye Care use Trifocal lenses. They are multifocal lenses that feature three steps to allow for great vision at near, middle, and far distances. These lenses are relatively new, but they are proving to be very popular with patients. People who get trifocal surgery find that they greatly reduce the need to wear glasses after the procedure.
There are also multifocal-toric IOLs that can be used to treat cataracts, presbyopia, and astigmatism. Premium lenses offer great options for patients who can work with their ophthalmologist to take care of multiple eye issues.
There are good reasons to get premium lenses for your cataract surgery. You can fix not just the main cataract issue but also other vision problems. The innovative lenses allow vision correction at multiple distances and focal points.
Premium lenses greatly reduce the need to wear glasses and, in most cases, eliminate the need. People with an active lifestyle can benefit from the glasses-free option. Another reason to get the lenses is that they help save on eyewear expenses. You will not need to get new prescription glasses regularly, so you save money in the long term.
It is necessary to choose the right surgeon for your cataract surgery. The surgery will help improve your overall vision. It is vital to talk to a qualified ophthalmologist so that you can find out more about the surgery and the lens options. Finding a clinic where you can be comfortable you are thoroughly guided through your options and then implementing that decision to ensure that you get the desired results is critical. The surgeons at Fier Eye Care look forward to the opportunity to work with you through this process.
