Lens options for cataract surgery

Once you have decided to have cataract surgery, you will have different options for what type of intraocular lens implant you wish to have. We offer a lens that will correct for presbyopia, a lens to correct for astigmatism, and a basic intraocular lens.


Correction for Presbyopia

Presbyopia is considered an age-related eye condition that affects adults 40 and over. This condition occurs when the lens of the eye becomes more rigid, making it harder for the eye to focus on objects in close range. This change in vision makes it difficult to perform tasks such as reading the newspaper, crocheting, or putting on makeup.

Symphony Interocular Lens implants offer extended range of vision, and are used for patients that want to be less dependent on their glasses for activities of their daily life. This lens will correct vision for viewing objects near, at an intermediate distance, and far. If you'd like to continue performing everyday tasks that presbyopia has limited you in accomplishing due to the hassle of wearing glasses, this implant may be right for you.


Correction for Astigmatism

Astigmatism is an imperfection in the curvature of the cornea, causing a refractive error when light rays improperly focus onto the retina. Astigmatism is a quite common condition, many of those characterized with it having had it since birth. As a result of astigmatism, vision for objects near or far will appear blurry or distorted.

The Symphony Toric Interocular Lens implants offer extended range of vision, and are used for patients that want to have their astigmatism corrected so they can be less dependent on their glasses for distance vision. If you have astigmatism before surgery and you do not choose this toric implant, you will need to wear glasses for both reading and seeing far away.


Basic intraocular lens implant

Traditional IOL

This lens will help patients be able to do some distance activities without glasses, but will need to wear glasses for reading after the surgery.


Although most insurance companies do not pay for the Symphony IOL or Symphony Toric IOL, we do not want that to stop you from having the best vision possible. We do have financing options available for you including CareCredit. Talk to your surgical coordinator about your options today!
