Advances in lens exchange procedures allow people just like you to continue to live your life the way you want to live it.
At Carter Eye Center, we have a variety of premium lens implants (we call them Lifestyle Lenses) that can correct your cataracts as well as reduce, and in many instances, eliminate your dependency on glasses, bifocals and even readers allowing you to enjoy your lifestyle even more with improved vision!
What is a Lifestyle Lens?
Although standard cataract surgery has been proven very successful at removing cataracts and replacing the eye’s natural lens with a clear lens, many people find they still need glasses, bifocals or multifocals in order to achieve their best vision. Compared to standard intraocular lenses (IOLs), Lifestyle Lenses greatly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses after your cataract surgery procedure.
At Carter Eye Center, we are dedicated to offering the latest proven technologies that provide the greatest benefit for you, our valued patient. We are pleased to offer the following Lifestyle Lens options:
Patients who have astigmatism typically need additional correction beyond traditional cataract replacement surgery in order to see clearly post-surgery. A toric lens implant is an excellent way to correct limited amounts of the most common type of astigmatism. While a toric lens is designed to reduce dependency on glasses for distance vision after cataract surgery, many patients still find they need glasses and/or readers for intermediate and near vision.
This is the most basic of the multifocal lenses, but it still offers a fantastic alternative to traditional cataract lenses. These Lifestyle Lenses offer great focus at far and intermediate distances, but it is not uncommon to still need glasses for reading small print or in low light situations. A multifocal lens is a great option to reduce your need for glasses after cataract surgery at a lower price point than some of the newest lens options.
At Carter Eye Center, you can see that we offer several Lifestyle Lens options, all of which can focus at multiple distances but each with its own distinct advantages. Based on your unique vision needs and lifestyle, we will help you choose the lens best for you.
