PREMIUM LENS OPTIONS

Cataract Surgery: Expectations and Your Goals

Standard Vision: Standard cataract surgery with traditional intraocular lens implants.

  • Expectations: After surgery you may need glasses 100% of the time for reading and driving (distance and near).
  • Goal: You goal includes removal of the cataract and implant of a standard monofocal lens with no additional fees. The monofocal lens has only one focusing point and will correct your vision at that point once your cataract is removed. This lens does not correct astigmatism. It is common to need glasses for distance, intermediate and near focus and to correct astigmatism. You may need bifocal, trifocal or reading glasses. If you choose this option and later desire to be less dependent on glasses, you may purchase enhancement at a later date.

Enhanced Vision: Custom cataract surgery with astigmatism treatment.

  • Expectations: After surgery the goal is to achieve better Distance or Near vision but you may need glasses 100% of the time for reading (near).
  • Goal: Your goal includes removal of the cataract and implant of an aspheric monofocal lens with astigmatic management for the additional fee. This custom category is recommended for all post-Lasik and PRK patients. The Enhance package includes all necessary additional testing for astigmatism management for clearer distance vision. There are several ways to manage astigmatism including a toric lens implant, corneal relaxing incisions and/or WaveTec laser vision customization. You will still need reading glasses. This is your best choice if you do not mind wearing glasses for reading but want better, clearer distance vision while driving.

Premium Enhanced Vision: Custom cataract surgery with presbyopia correcting lenses and astigmatism management.

  • Expectations: The goal would be to reduce your dependency on glasses for Distance and Near vision. Most patients should expect not to wear glasses the majority of the time for distance and near vision. It may still be necessary to wear glasses to maximize night time driving due to low light and for fine print at near or intermediate and may still require appropriate lighting.
  • Goal: The additional fee includes removal of the cataract with custom presbyopic correcting lens technology as well as astigmatism correction and/or the use of WaveTec laser vision customization if needed. The Platinum package includes the custom prebyopic correcting lens technology with all necessary additional testing for astigmatism management for clearer distance and near vision. Presbyopic correcting lenses offer most patients functional near and distance vision with less dependency on glasses. These lenses have helped numerous patients gain independence from glasses. This is your best choice if you want to achieve better, clearer distance vision while driving and the ability to read with minimal dependency on glasses.
