How an Intraocular Lens Works

An intraocular lens replaces your eye’s natural lens when a cataract has made it cloudy. An intraocular lens works by refracting light rays that enter the eye and helping you to see. At Kelly Vision Center, cataract services such as this are one of our primary services, so you can be certain you’re in excellent hands. 

Reclaim Your Vision

Clear vision is important. This is why we offer patient financing for your out-of-pocket expenses for any of the options listed below. If you’re a candidate for cataract surgery and have questions about which intraocular lens is right for you, schedule your free consultation with trusted expert cataract surgeon Dr. James Kelly — a board-certified ophthalmologist who has performed thousands of successful eye procedures in the New York area.

Premium IOLs Include the Following:

AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ IOL

  • Designed with a new, non-diffractive technology called X-Wave™ which allows patients to experience optimal vision in both bright and dim lighting
  • Offers protection against the sun’s damaging UV rays and filters harmful blue light rays from digital devices
  • Reduces or eliminates halos, starbursts, and glare after having cataract surgery — a major advantage for night driving

AcrySof IQ PanOptix® IOL

  • First and only trifocal lens in the United States
  • Enhanced vision for clear, complete focus
  • Over 125 million AcrySof lenses implanted (and counting)
  • Available in a toric lens to correct astigmatism

RxSight Light Adjustable Lens

Using a special lens material designed by a Nobel Prize-winning scientist, you can now customize your vision after your cataract surgery. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match. In a study of 600 subjects, those who received the Light Adjustable Lens (followed by adjustments) were twice as likely to achieve 20/20 distance vision at six months without glasses as those who received a standard monofocal IOL.

Optometrist Diane Ramirez-Shank shares her experience with the RxSight® Light Adjustable Lens™ and explains the procedure
