Intraocular Lens Options (IOLs)
Kelly Vision center offers only the best premium IOLs for patients in the New York area to improve a patient’s vision following cataract surgery.
The procedure involves removing the eye’s natural lens, which has grown opaque or obscured. After cataract surgery, there are many options for replacement lenses, including lenses that may actually make your vision better than it was before you started developing cataracts, which means no more reading glasses, and, in some cases, no more glasses at all.
ReSTOR has concentric rings of different lens power so that there is a full range of vision, near to far, that is in focus without need for glasses. It is a great lens for people who want to be able to both drive and read without glasses. People who play sports such as golf or tennis can enjoy good distance and near vision without loss of depth perception.
If you have astigmatism, you know that it makes it harder for you to get a good prescription for glasses or contacts, and that it interferes with your vision at all distances. It may also interfere with your ability to see clearly after cataract surgery. However, Toric IOL allow us to correct your astigmatism and have clear distance vision or near vision.
Please contact cataract surgeon Dr. James R. Kelly for a free consultation to learn more about intraocular lenses and to find out which is best for you.
TECNIS® Symfony Intraocular Lens
The TECNIS® Symfony IOL is a premium intraocular lens that is implanted onto the eye during cataract surgery and is FDA approved to correct both the blurry vision of cataracts and the farsightedness of presbyopia. With traditional IOLs, most people still required reading glasses after cataracts surgery. While their blurry vision was addressed, presbyopia still remained. Even multifocal IOLs which addressed the issue of farsightedness, still had problems with glare, halos, and contrast sensitivity on the eye’s lens, making vision in some lighting situations difficult. By using a combination of a unique diffractive pattern with achromatic technology, TECNIS® Symfony IOLs deliver a high range of field of vision while maintaining contrast.
Benefits of TECNIS® Symfony IOLs
There are many benefits to choosing TECNIS® Symfony IOLs over other intraocular lenses, including:
- A continuous range of high-quality vision for far, intermediate, and near distances
- No compromise in distance vision compared to monofocal lenses
- No glare or halos on lens, as can happen in multifocal IOLs
- Most patients no longer needed glasses for long distance and many no longer needed glasses for intermediate sight
- Minimal recovery time, with many patients able to return to normal activities after 24 hours
- Delivers clear, continuous vision for patients with or without astigmatism
