Lifestyle Lens Implants

Learn how you can see better after cataract surgery!

Cataract patients now have an option to see at both near and far distances after cataract surgery! Individuals suffering from cataracts previously had only a mono-focal lens implant option after surgery. NEW multifocal IOL technology can decrease dependence on glasses after surgery.

Multifocal IOL Implants

inserting_restorOur eyes are always adjusting and constantly focusing on objects up close, far away, and in between. The ability for our eyes to change focus from far away to up close is called accommodation. As we get older, this ability decreases, and we become dependent on bifocals or reading glasses.

AcrySof Toric IOL

Toric IOL corrects astigmatism in a patient’s eye to provide better vision after cataract surgery. The Toric lens is specialized lens that corrects the curvature on a patient’s cornea and significantly improves uncorrected distance vision independent of glasses or contact lens. The Toric lens is made of a biocompatible lens material that has already successfully been implanted in more than 25 million eyes since 1991. The Toric lens is a premium implant and there is an additional fee above Medicare coverage for it.


Astigmatism means that an eye’s surface (cornea and lens) is spherical and is shaped like a football. Normal eyes are round and shaped like a basketball. If astigmatism is not corrected, patients will have blurred vision after standard cataract surgery, and will need glasses or contacts to correct their vision. Surgical options to correct astigmatism include: Limbal Relaxing Incisions, Toric IOL and Excimer Laser Refractive surgery.
