Lifestyle or Premium IOLs create multiple focal points so patients are able to see well at varied distances and some, such as accommodating IOLs, are engineered to mimic the eye’s natural process of accommodation.The specialty lenses offer patients the opportunity for greater independence from glasses after surgery. Contrary to popular belief, a cataract is not a type of “film” that forms over the surface of the eye.In reality, a cataract is the result of a natural change occurring inside your eye, a gradual clouding that can make your vision less sharp over time.There are many factors to be considered when choosing the right lens for your lifestyle.
For instance, most patients will see well enough to watch TV or drive without correction, but will need corrective lenses to read, use their cell phones, or do any close-up work.
As we age, however, proteins in the lens begin to clump together, forming opaque clusters.
Over time, these protein clumps will eventually cloud the lens, allowing significantly less light to pass through.
As part of our premium package selections, patients that choose the premium packages get unlimited face to face time with the surgeon to discuss their wishes about glasses wear.
Remember, medical insurance does not cover any part of the examination and/or surgery that is spent to discuss glasses options and ANY extra effort by our office to address glasses wear is billable directly to the patient.
