Premium Intraocular Lenses

When your cataracts get bad enough, it's time for surgery. Our doctor will remove your eye's natural lens and replace it with an artificial one. Intraocular Lens (IOLs) types, including premium, standard, and single-vision, are available. There are many reasons why people choose this option. Call us at our office in Monterey, CA, to see our doctor about your cataracts.

Premium IOLs

This lens choice is an advanced technology with many more features than the single-vision lens. The price of the lenses is a concern for many people, as premium IOLs cost more. However, several advantages come with the extra cost. These lenses can reduce how much you need to wear contact lenses or glasses after your surgery. Premium IOLs offer clear vision that allows you to see better than you have in years.

There are several premium IOLs that you could get. Multiple specialized choices help you see far away and close up better. It can take the brain a while to get used to these, but it soon learns to focus between near and far automatically.

Toric IOLs

Toric IOLs are the only kind made for people with astigmatism. People have astigmatism when their cornea or lens has an abnormal shape. When this happens, people get blurry and distorted vision. With this type of IOL, it can fix this problem. It can also be used for farsightedness and nearsightedness. These lenses correct the abnormal shape so you can see at various distances.

Aspheric IOLs

Aspheric IOLs are a type that people might get when they have pupils that are larger than usual. These lenses have an advanced design that aims to improve image quality and reduce optical aberrations compared to traditional spherical IOLs. This type of lens is closest to the natural lens of the eye. They can sharpen a patient's vision even when light is low.
