Advanced Technology Lenses

Reduce or Eliminate the Need for Glasses or Bifocals After Cataract Surgery

Major advances in lens exchange procedures allow people just like you to continue to live your life the way you want to live it. At Eye Medical Clinic, we offer a variety of Advanced Technology Lenses that can correct your cataracts AND get you out of your glasses or bifocals.

What is an Advanced Technology Lens?

Although standard cataract surgery has been proven very successful at removing the cataract 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), Advanced Technology Lenses greatly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses after your cataract surgery procedure.

Advanced Technology Lenses

designed to help you enjoy your life and all the things you like to do…with clear vision.

Specifically, Multifocal Lenses are created to improve distance and near focus, while Toric lenses are designed to correct astigmatism.

While there are no lens options that can definitively promise 20/20 vision at all distances, most patients who choose an Advanced Technology Lens for their cataract surgery procedure at Eye Medical Clinic are glasses-free for most daily activities. And most are thrilled with their vision after cataract surgery.

So, whether you love to hike, swim, play tennis and golf, paint, sculpt or just curl up with a great book, we have a procedure custom-designed to give you the opportunity to have your best vision.

At Eye Medical Clinic, we offer several Advanced Technology 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.

Advanced Technology Lens options

Toric Lens

Patients who have astigmatism typically need additional correction beyond traditional cataract replacement surgery in order to see clearly post surgery. This Advanced Technology Lens is designed to provide you with the ability to see objects at a distance, while correcting your astigmatism at the same time.

Multifocal Lens

A multifocal lens is an Advanced Technology Lens that is designed to provide you with the ability to focus on objects at multiple distances—near, intermediate, and far. In most cases, your need for glasses will be reduced; however, some people may still need them for reading small print.

Important to note, unlike traditional cataract technology and surgery options, Advanced Technology Lens packages are not covered by Medicare and insurance payers.

The monofocal lens described earlier is not considered an Advanced Technology Lens. It is the basic lens that would be covered by Medicare and private insurance. It is designed to provide you with high-quality vision at one focal point, typically distance vision. You will still need glasses for viewing objects up close.

Lens choices will be further explained during your comprehensive cataract consultation at Eye Medical Clinic.
