Presbyopic Intraocular Lens (P-IOL)
For a greater freedom from glasses after cataract surgery, and maybe even before your vision deteriorates from cataracts, consider this new option. Until recently, patients undergoing len implant surgery received a single focus, or monofocal lens. This usually provided excellent distant vision, but required reading glasses for near and intermediate vision. P-IOL's are designed to give not only distance vision but better intermediate and near vision as well, to reduce your dependency on glasses or contact lenses. Our surgeons are currently using Crystalens,Restor and Rezoom P-IOL's to treat our patients. Click on the underlined links to read about them in more detail. Each one has advantages and disadvantages. Call us so we can explain each one in more detail.
