Premium Lens Implants

What are Premium Lens Implants?

Once you have made the decision to undergo cataract surgery with your eye doctor you will have a series of decisions to make related to the type of artificial lens implant you will have. In recent years, several types of toric, bifocal and/or multifocal implants have been developed. These lenses allow you to see clearly at a variety of distances, greatly reduce the need for glasses. Several manufacturers, including Alcon, Advanced Medical Optics, and Eyeonics, have recently received approval from the FDA for new technology multi-focal lenses following cataract surgery. With new innovations, a better lens is now available. These lenses are referred to as premium lenses and come in various formats or types.

  • Multifocal
  • Accommodating
  • Toric
