Cataract Lens Options
TECNIS® Symfony IOL
Introducing TECNIS® Symfony iol, the first and only presbyopia correcting extended range of vision iol. The latest addition to the TECNIS® Family of IOLs offers new optical technology for providing an Extended Range of Vision.
Softec HD Intraocular Lens
The Lenstec Softec HD is very special because it offers lens power increments of 0.25 diopters when most manufacturers offer lenses in 0.50 diopter increments. At the same time, industry standards allow tolerances of 0.400 diopters, while the Softec HD has much tighter tolerances of 0.125 diopters. Dr. Zubelieveslieve that the narrower the increments of power and the tighter the tolerances, the better the lens will perform.
Toric IOLs for Cataracts and Astigmatism
When the front surface of the eye (the cornea) is spherical in shape–like a basketball–light passes through it and focuses to a clear single point in the back of the eye, giving clear vision. However, when the curve of the cornea is different horizontally than it is vertically, like a football–light that passes into the eye is scattered into multiple points. This scattering of light gives blurred vision and is called astigmatism.
Tecnis® Multifocal IOL
If you are exploring treatment options for cataract surgery with your doctor, the TECNIS® Multifocal Implantable Lens may be the right choice for you. It’s an advanced implantable lens, empowering you with high-quality vision in any light condition, from near to far distances-and everything in between. In fact, nearly 9 out of 10 patients don’t need glasses after the procedure.
