Premium Lens Implants.

Exciting ADVANCEMENTS in Intraocular Lens Implants may greatly reduce dependancy on eyeglasses for many patients after cataract surgery.

best, Arizona Eye Surgeon

Innovative advancements in ophthalmology are now available to patients being evaluated for cataract surgery. If cataract surgery is the best treatment for you, there are now premium lens implant options that offer your best possible visual result - depending on the physical limitations and potential of your individual eye. East Valley Ophthalmology uses the latest technology for each patient's assessment in order to provide the most precise data possible, facilitating optimal vision correction — customizing solutions to suit your specific eye care needs.

More than any other consideration, we focus on what is most appropriate for you as an individual. As no two eyes are the same, there is no one solution to everyone's vision after cataract surgery. Prior to your appointment, we invite you to research some of the choices below and call our office with any questions:


Premium Single-Focal Lens Implants

These lenses are the ideal for many cataract patients. The single-focus lens implants give patients the best possible clarity at one distance, either for far away, intermediate or up close. Glasses will be necessary for some activities.

Alcon AcrySof IQ Lens Implant

The IQ Lens Implant, for patients without astigmatism, gives the best potential for quality vision, typically for distance only. The AcrySof IQ lens is a single-piece yellow acrylic IOL with a patented surface modification that treats spherical aberration and cataracts. These lenses are more difficult to manufacture, but their optics are better. Plus, while all currently available artificial lenses filter UV light, the AcrySof IQ lens implant filters both UV and blue light, which more closely mimics the abilities of a natural youthful lens.

Alcon AcrySof Toric Lens Implant

The Toric Lens Implant, for cataract patients with astigmatism, corrects both conditions simultaneously. The lens incorporates an optical design that corrects for pre-existing astigmatism in cataract patients, resulting in significantly improved distance visual outcomes. East Valley Ophthalmology was one of the clinical investigators in the original FDA study for this lens. The ability to precisely correct a given patient's astigmatic error with the Toric IOL was apparent after the first patient!

Multifocal Lens Implants

Traditional lens implants are monofocal of single-focal lenses, meaning they offer vision at one distance only (far, intermediate, or near). The new multifocal and accommodating lens implants offer the possibility of seeing well at more than one distance, with less dependence on glasses than the standard mono-focal lens implant. These premium lens implants are available for select patients who meet specific criterion set by East Valley Ophthalmology physicians.

Alcon AcrySof ReStor Lens Implant

The ReStor Lens Implant uses apodized diffractive technology — a design that responds to how wide or small the eye's pupil might be — to best provide near and distance vision, but objects at intermediate distances may still be somewhat out of focus. No lens can promise you perfect vision or that you will never have to wear glasses ever again. But in FDA studies with this lens, 80% of patients reported that they never wore glasses after the procedure. When patients did need to wear glasses, most often it was for intermediate distance, for example: piano music, computers that sit further away, top shelves at the supermarket.

Personalized Attention to Your Particular Needs

Each of these advanced technology implantable lenses uses a slightly different optical design to help you achieve your goal of clear vision. The best way to determine which lens is the best choice for you can only be determined during a complete eye exam by a qualified ophthalmologist. Once our doctors have measured and examined your eyes, we can discuss your lifestyle and vision needs, and which procedure will help you see your best. Your surgeon at East Valley Ophthalmology will make his recommendation for you based on your specific physiology and needs.

The eye surgeons of East Valley Ophthalmology perform the full scope of advanced technology diagnostic testing and treatment, as well as taking the time necessary to provide each patient with information needed to understand their condition and to achieve the best possible outcomes.
