No one wants to think of what they would do if they had to get cataract surgery. For many patients, however, cataract surgery means clear vision like they’ve never experienced before. How do we do it? Premium intraocular lenses, that’s how.
What is a Premium IOL?
Our Premium intraocular lenses (or IOLs) replace the natural lens that’s removed during cataract surgery. With several of the most advanced lenses available to treat both the cataract and related vision problems at the same time, you’re guaranteed to find something for you. Here at Eye Consultants of Texas, we strive to offer the best and most advanced technology on the market. With our wide selection of Premium IOLs, we’re doing just that.
Presbyopia Correcting IOLs
Presbyopia, an age-related refractive error that results in the need for reading glasses, is very common in those with cataracts. These lenses themselves are designed to treat the cataract, correct presbyopia, improve vision at varying distances, and reduce the need for reading glasses after cataract surgery. These premium lenses are multi-tasking at it’s finest.
Bausch & Lomb enVista®
The enVista® intraocular lens (IOL) is a single-piece ultraviolet light absorbing lens developed to give patient long-term clarity and quality of vision. This newest generation of intraocular lens implants was designed to improve visual acuity by correcting a minor postoperative condition called glistening, which can have minor adverse effects on visual acuity. As with most premium smart lenses, the enVista IOL does incur some out-of-pocket expense to patients who choose this lens during cataract surgery. However, early results suggest that this lens provides vision restoration on par with many refractive surgeries, reducing the need for glasses or contacts.
The Symfony is the first in a new category of Extended Range of Vision IOLs. This provides a full range of continuous, high-quality vision at all distances, and all points in between.
This is the first accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) – accommodating meaning the lens moves naturally within the eye. It’s designed to improve depth of focus at all distances, which can be more effective than multifocal lenses. Read More
This lens not only enhances near, intermediate and distance vision, it’s designed to reduce starbursts, glare and other nighttime side effects. Read More
The Nanoflex is a monofocal intraocular lens (IOL) that provides “Blended Vision” (one eye set for distance vision and the other for near vision.
This multifocal lens is designed to correct presbyopia while enhancing intermediate and distance vision. Read More
Astigmatism Correcting Toric IOLs
It’s not uncommon to experience astigmatism (an irregular shaped cornea) if you have cataracts. “Toric” means these intraocular lenses treat the cataract and correct the astigmatism simultaneously, and can improve your range of clear vision.
STAAR Toric IOL
This lens is designed for those with pre-existing astigmatism. It’s made of non-toxic silicone, allowing a more flexible, natural fit within the eye. Read More
AcrySof IQ Toric IOL
This Toric lens is designed to correct higher degrees of corneal astigmatism. It can reduce glare and visual disturbances, and improve intermediate, as well as distance vision. Read More
Presbyopia and Astigmatism Correcting Toric IOLs
These newer types of lenses treat the cataract, while correcting presbyopia and astigmatism all at the same time. In addition, these lenses can provide a better range of clear vision with minimal dependency on glasses.
Trulign Crystalens® Toric IOL
The Trulign is a lens that treats the cataract, corrects presbyopia and astigmatism, and the need to wear glasses for distance vision (driving), intermediate vision (computer), and near vision (reading). Read More
Tecnis Symfony Toric IOL
This lens also treats the cataract while correcting both presbyopia and astigmatism. It provides a full range of continuous, high quality vision with minimal dependence on glasses for distance, intermediate and near vision.
