Although cataracts themselves have not changed, the way that we treat them has. Technology and techniques have markedly improved in the past 30 years, enhancing the speed, safety and efficacy of cataract surgery.
At Clarity Eye Group, we leverage the power and precision of a femtosecond laser to automate parts of the procedure and make it faster and more predictable than previously possible. Additionally, we expanded our portfolio of intraocular lenses (IOLs) to achieve greater patient outcomes.
New Technology Leads To Better Options
Standard monofocal lenses provide great distance vision but require the use of glasses or contacts for most activities, including reading printed material or sending an email.
If you want independence from glasses or contacts, you could select from one of the newer categories of IOLs. These IOLs offer a full range of vision while minimizing the need for corrective eyewear. With the Vivity or PanOptix IOLs, you can enjoy the sharp vision you need for nearly all of your daily activities, including reading, working on a computer and exercising.
The AcrySof IQ PanOptix IOL is a trifocal lens that gives you complete vision at near, intermediate and faraway distances. You get effortless, high-definition vision with no blurry zones or drop-off in quality. You can enjoy the vivid details of your life with excellent color vision. And best of all, you are less likely to reach for glasses or contacts as you go about your day-to-day routine.
Vivity is another lens built on the AcrySof IQ platform. It is an extended depth of focus (EDOF) IOL — perfect for restoring distance and intermediate vision while mitigating presbyopia, or the age-related loss of reading vision. What makes Vivity so different from other lenses of its kind is that it is able to provide a complete, clear range of vision without side effects such as halos or starbursts around lights at night. With Vivity, you can see better than you did before cataracts set in; in fact, many of our patients describe achieving the visual clarity they enjoyed at a much younger age!
