The Tecnis Symfony lens implant IOL can decrease the need for glasses after laser cataract surgery
Multifocal lens implants for cataract surgery have definite advantages over monofocal lens implants
Laser cataract surgery also requires choosing the best lens implant or IOL for each patient. Different lenses will provide freedom from glasses.
A variety of lens implants, also known as IOL's are available for cataract surgery patients in Macomb County. Different IOL's provide freedom from glasses in the office of Dr. William Goldstein
The treatment for cataract involves the removal of the natural crystalline lens which is clouded to supplant it with the intraocular lens (IOL) or clear artificial lens. It is now a faster, safer and a more comfortable procedure than it was in the past.
Multifocal lens implant Michigan comes as a boon for those who need lens implants at any age. Generally, such implants are made at the time of cataract operation. However, earlier monofocal lens implants were made which necessitated the use of glasses. Today, with FDA approved multifocal lens, the glasses can be completely removed.
The Tecnis lens implant Michigan is a multifocal implant, used to replace the natural lens and provide great vision for distance and near. The natural lens is replaced with man made lens (IOL) in cataract surgery. A Multifocal lens makes clear vision possible for near, distance and intermediate vision without the use of glasses.
A multifocal lens implant is a type of lens implant that reduces the need for glasses as compared to a single focus lens implant. A single focus implant provides you with ideal clarity till some particular distance but you require glasses to change focus. By getting a multifocal lens implant, you can focus on near and far objects simultaneously without the need of glasses to change focus.
Patients frequently ask How do you choose the lens implant that is right for my eye? Are all lens implants the same? They want to know if everyone gets the same power lens, and how do we work to obtain a result that does not require glasses for our patients.
When a patient comes in for their surgical evaluation, Dr. Goldstein has a long discussion regarding an individuals goals for surgery. If they only want distance correction, then a standard lens may be selected. If they prefer to eliminate distance AND reading glasses, then an advanced technology lens must be used, such as the Crystalens implant.
Once the general category of lens is chosen, careful measurements are carried out to determine the shape, length, curvature and power of the eye. Next, a list of possible lens implants and powers is printed out. The cataract surgeon in Michigan selects the proper lens implant based on the patients wishes, the desired outcome, and the experience of the surgeon.
