Premium Lens Options
Around the age of 40, most people begin to lose the ability to read comfortably without reading glasses. This condition known as presbyopia, leaves nearly everyone around 50 years of age dependent on some form of reading correction. During the early days of cataract surgery, we could only implant mono-focal lenses, meaning that patients only had the option of correcting their vision for up close (near vision) or for far away (distance vision).
Today, with the wonderful advances in intra-ocular lens (IOL) technology, Coastal Vision is able to provide patients with premium multi-focal lenses (also known as presbyopia correcting lenses). Implantation of these lenses after cataract surgery, may provide patients with the advantages of reducing or even eliminating dependence on glasses altogether.
Standard Monofocal IOL
RxSight® Light Adjustable Lens
ReSTOR® Multifocal Lens
At Coastal Vision, we believe in providing our patients with the very best in vision care. We are proud to offer the latest advancements in technology including the Acrysof® ReSTOR® IOL. The ReSTOR® IOL provides patients with better vision after cataract surgery and they are less dependent on their glasses. ReSTOR® is a vast improvement from the traditional monofocal lenses which only allow patients to see clearly at one distance following cataract surgery. Cataract surgery with ReSTOR® can potentially eliminate a patient’s needs for glasses or bifocals.
As we age it becomes difficult to focus at various distances and that is when glasses become necessary. The ReSTOR® lens changes the focus which allows patients to see at various distances. ReSTOR® can help cataract patients eliminate these difficulties and be able to see at a multitude of distances.
ReSTOR® IOL is considered one of the first premium lens implants to achieve a high level of success among cataract patients. Most patients have had a positive experiences with the ReSTOR® and they either do not have to wear glasses any more or only for a few small tasks. FDA data released states that 80% of patients were glasses-free following cataract surgery with ReSTOR®. Patients are provided with better vision and their eyes feel young again.
