If you suffer from cataracts, astigmatism (which often causes blurry vision) or presbyopia (the loss of up-close visual acuity that comes with age), Dr. Weinstein can offer you the option of a premium lens implant. These lenses have the ability to restore near and distant vision. Each lens implant has distinct advantages and we urge you to get acquainted with each type if you are one of the many sufferers of cataracts, astigmatism, or presbyopia.
Tecnis Symfony®, Tecnis Multifocal®, AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR®, and Crystalens® lens implants provide freedom from glasses or contacts to older patients suffering from cataracts or presbyopia. Lens implants have the advantages of bifocals with none of the inconveniences. They are invisible to others once implanted, stay in place with no special care, require no maintenance, and can be removed by a surgeon if necessary (for example, if your vision changes following surgery).
The TECNIS Symfony® IOL is an intraocular lens approved for presbyopia correction and for use in cataract treatment. It is an improvement from prior multifocal IOL's in that it has a larger range of vision and reduces nighttime glare.
This multifocal lens allows patients to see clearly at near, intermediate and far distance without glasses in all light conditions. The TECNIS Multifocal® lens implant is designed to improve near vision and distance vision.
The Acrysof® IQ ReStor® IOL reduces patients dependence on glasses and contacts by restoring multifocal vision.
The Crystalens® IOL is designed to help cataract patients suffering from hyperopia and myopia enhancing vision at a range of distances. Most patients have excellent midrange and computer vision. They need glasses for near and very small print.
If you are suffering from cataracts, astigmatism, or presbyopia, discuss multifocal lens implants with Dr. Weinstein. Contact Weinstein Refractive Center today to get started.
I have been going to Dr Weinstein for years and I love him! Finally did LASIK and it was the best decision of my life. I'm a few months out now and I am doing and seeing great!
