Eyeglasses in Case

AcrySof ReSTOR LogoReSTOR

The AcrySof ReSTOR lens is a type of intraocular lens that works to correct vision in cataract or presbyopia patients who have trouble focusing at near, far, or middle distances. Instead of using glasses, contacts, bifocals, or trifocals, most patients will be able to focus seamlessly between varieties of distances following the ReSTOR implant. Many patients are able to throw away their reading glasses with their newfound independence!

After the eye’s natural clouded lens is removed during cataract surgery, the ReSTOR lens is implanted. Apodized diffractive technology helps the small convex lens distribute light appropriately based on your focusing attempts. Unlike traditional cataract surgery where the lens is removed and replaced with a monofocal lens; most ReSTOR patients will not need reading glasses following the procedure.

Good candidates for the ReSTOR lens include patients with healthy corneas who are developing cataracts or who have the condition of

presbyopia, a condition where the eye’s lens loses flexibility and causes near vision difficulties. Patients who have already had cataract surgery cannot have the ReSTOR procedure.

Crystalens

Improve near vision, far vision, or anything in between following cataract surgery with the modern Crystalens procedure. With Crystalens, patients can regain their natural focusing power with a replacement of the eye’s crystalline lens. This single-focus intraocular lens (IOL) helps patients compensate for a loss of near, far, and in-between focusing power, while successfully accommodating between all distances by moving along with the muscles in your eye. Seamless focusing is the quality that makes Crystalens so popular, whereas, with traditional fixed focal replacement lenses, patients had to choose between crisp near or far vision.

Crystalens may be used as a cataract or vision correction procedure. Based on your refractive correction needs, your Crystalens will be customized to improve vision. During your Crystalens procedure, your doctor will numb the eye with eye drops, create a small incision in the outer layer of the cornea, and use ultrasound technology to gently break up the cataract-laden lens and remove it. The custom Crystalens is gently set in its place and the incision begins healing. After a short instruction period, you will be able to focus seamlessly between all distances without the use of glasses or contacts!

Crystalens FAQs

Q. What makes Crystalens such a unique intraocular lens?

A. Because Crystalens allows recipients to focus clearly between near, far, and middle distances, it offers a distinct advantage. Previous intraocular lens implants forced patients to choose which single vision they preferred, near or distance, forcing them to wear glasses or contacts to achieve a full range of clear vision. Crystalens allows patients to see better at all distances!

Q. Will Crystalens allow me to have perfect vision?

A. The Crystalens procedure is designed to improve vision depending on a patient’s refractive error. Although the majority of patients will achieve perfect (20/20) or near-perfect (20/40) vision, there is no guarantee that the technique will provide unflawed results for everyone. Each person’s eyes are uniquely different, and your doctor will consider a variety of factors before recommending this procedure. According to a recent Crystalens clinical trial, 98% of participants could pass a driver’s test!

Q. Will Crystalens improve my 'middle vision'.

A. Your middle vision, or visual acuity at arm’s length, should show marked improvements following the Crystalens procedure. Many patients are able to throw away trifocals, which were once needed to help achieve focus between distances. Crystalens offers automatic focusing power, mimicking the accommodation ability of your eye’s natural lens.

Q. Can Crystalens help me?

A. Dr. Berg or Dr. Feinfield will need to give you a thorough eye examination before this question can be answered. Because everyone’s eyes are different, we cannot be certain that Crystalens will be an effective treatment until specialized measuring and eye evaluation is performed. Generally, good candidates are healthy, have healthy eyes free of disease, and have not had cataract surgery previously.

Q. Do I need the Crystalens implant in both eyes?

A. Most patients with cataracts will see development in both eyes, so Crystalens is typically performed on both eyes. However, if only one eye shows signs of cataract development, you may opt to have only that eye treated. Even if treatment in both eyes is recommended, you will generally have one eye done at a time with a period of two to three weeks between procedures.

Q. When will I see the benefits of improved vision?

A. You will be asked to have someone drive you home from surgery as it may take a few days to recover vision. Distance vision will clear in 1 – 2 days, with middle and near vision improving within 2 weeks. Your vision may not reach its full focusing power for a few months. Your doctor will inform you of what to expect and give you suggestions for strengthening the focusing power of your eyes. Although most Crystalens patients do not need vision aids once healing is complete, some patients may require glasses to achieve optimal visual acuity.

Q. What are the side effects associated with Crystalens?

A. A very small number of Crystalens patients experience glare, diminished night vision, halos, or sensitivity to light. Many of these side effects are temporary, but there are effective ways to minimize these problems if and when they occur. Your doctor will discuss all risks and side effects with you during your eye consultation.

Q. How long is the healing process after the Crystalens procedure?

A. Your eye will be sensitive following surgery, so it is important you follow your doctor’s post-operative instructions. He will give you a timetable for when you can resume work and other activities, depending on your ability to heal quickly. Most patients are able to return to work, drive, and perform normal activities within a few days, with limitations on exercise, makeup-wearing, lifting, sports, and any activities where eye contact is possible.

TECNIS

TECNIS Symfony

The Tecnis Symfony® Intraocular Lens is a multifocal IOL that provide continuous high-quality vision following cataract surgery. The purpose is to improve visual acuity at any distance, simultaneously decreasing the effects of presbyopia to help people focus on near objects. This release also includes a version of the IOL lens for people with astigmatism. The lens is an improvement on the traditional monofocal IOLs being used, which are designed to improve distance vision at the expense of seeing things closer up.

The Tecnis Symfony® IOL was FDA-approved in 2016 and has been making waves in the ophthalmology world since. What makes this IOL so special? It’s the first IOL designed specifically with presbyopia in mind.

If you are have been dealing with presbyopia for some time, you know how hard it can be. Now imagine what it’s like to have presbyopia and cataracts. This is a recipe for some serious vision problems. Fortunately, the Symfony® IOL corrects both.
