At our Marin Ophthalmic Surgery Center, we provide Standard, Aspheric, Toric and Multifocal IOL options dependeing on the needs of the patient.
These are also great lenses for patients electing to have monovision.
If you have astigmatism, give these lenses strong consideration: Astigmatism-correctiong (Toric) IOL's are sometimes good for either balanced vision or monovision, at a modest additional expense.
The result with monovision is both near and far vision with reduced need for glasses.
You have more options than ever before for seeing well after cataract surgery.
Would you like to reduce your need for glasses after cataract surgery?
While many patients are suitable candidates for "Premium" IOL's, many are not.Read this expalnation, and watch the movie to gain an understanding of this subject.The goal is "Balanced Vision" in most cases, with the expectation of needing glasses after surgery.Some of our patients experience reduction in their need for glasses by having Standard, Aspheric or Toric IOL's of different powers in the two eyes (Monovision).This works best for people who have experienced monovision with contact lenses or laser vision correction before their cataract developed. Most of our patients receive an "aspheric" Monofocal IOL.For those who do not mind wearing glasses, monofocal implants are an excellent option. The goal is "Balanced Vision" for most of our patients. It provides diminished optical aberration, improving vision for driving at night or in poor light compared with the "standard" IOL.
