Cataract Lens Options Edison
Advances in vision technology offer a variety of intraocular lens (IOL) options for the treatment of cataracts, presbyopia, and other eye disorders and diseases. At Patel Eye Associates, we offer several types of lenses for the treatment of cataracts including Multifocal IOL options as well as monofocal IOL options. During your consultation, our team can go over the benefits of each option to help determine which option is the ideal choice for you.
Traditional IOLs are monofocal, providing clear vision at only one distance. While this is a definite improvement over your clouded, pre- cataract surgery vision, you will still need corrective lenses in order to see clearly at all distances.
Many of the newer and more advanced IOLs are multifocal, enabling you to see clearly at a variety of distances. As a result, you generally will not require corrective lenses following your procedure. NJ Cataract surgeons , Dr. Hitesh K. Patel and Dr. Himanshu S. Shah offer a variety of multifocal lenses, including:
Multifocal IOL Options
Multifocal intraocular lenses (IOL) are a type of prosthetic lens used in the treatment of cataracts. The process involves replacing the patient’s natural lenses with the multifocal IOL in order to restore function and reduce the need for corrective eyewear. Patients typically experience a clear improvement in their far distance vision and immediate vision. Cataracts patients also frequently experience presbyopia, a natural aging of the eyes that impairs close-up vision. Replacing the eye’s natural lens with a multifocal lens corrects the vision difficulties caused by cataracts as well as the refractive error caused by presbyopia. ReZoom, ReSTOR, and Crystalens are some of the dual-purpose IOLs Dr. Patel and Dr. Shah will discuss with you during your consultation.
While Dr. Patel and Dr. Shah work with monofocal IOLs, they generally recommend multifocal IOLs to their patients due to the many advantages they offer.
The Importance of a Board Certified Ophthalmologist
Multifocal IOLs offer many benefits, but a successful outcome requires the skills of a board-certified ophthalmologist with extensive vision correction experience. Placement of multifocal IOLS requires very precise IOL power calculations, highly accurate placement of the lens in the eye, and excellent control of any astigmatism. Dr. Patel and Dr. Shah are both board-certified ophthalmologists with extensive experience working with multifocal IOLs. Their commitment to continuing education ensures that they are up-to-date on all of the latest techniques and technology used for your procedure.
The cost of your cataract lens procedure in Edison will be based on several factors like the type of cataract lens used. During your consultation, Dr. Patel and Dr. Shah can go over each option with you to determine if a multifocal IOL is the right choice for you and can let you know what the expected cost of your treatment will be. Our team can also go over the payment options we offer. Financing options are also available to help make the payment process easier.
