A cataract is a natural change occurring inside your eye, a gradual clouding of the lens of your eye that can make your vision less sharp over time. A cataract can be the reason sharp images become blurred, bright colors become dull, or seeing at night is more difficult.
Surgery to treat cataracts is an outpatient procedure where an ophthalmologist removes the cloudy lens and replaces it with an artificial lens. Once you’ve decided to have cataract surgery, you and your doctor will decide which IOL is best suited for your needs.
Monofocal Lens: A lens with a single focal point, designed to provide distance vision while offering enhanced image quality.
Toric IOL: Astigmatism is where the cornea is curved more like a football, with a flatter and steeper curve, that can distort your vision. A traditional IOL does not correct astigmatism. A toric IOL provides significantly improved distance vision and may reduce the need for corrective lenses.
Multifocal IOL: A lens with multiple focal points, designed to correct presbyopia and provide a full range of vision – near, far, and in-between – while offering enhanced image quality.
Cataract surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure which typically takes about 10-15 minutes. Your eye will be treated with anesthetic eye drops prior to the procedure, so you’ll feel no discomfort.
