At Orange Coast Eye Center, we are proud to offer new technology intraocular lenses (IOLs) that are designed to reduce or eliminate your dependence on reading glasses, bifocals or trifocals. The difference from standard lenses is that with our more advanced technology, most will not be dependent on spectacles after surgery. We understand that your vision connects you to your world in so many ways and if you choose a new technology IOL, there is much better chance that you will be able to see in the distance and at near without glasses after surgery.
Dr. Younger is experienced with ReSTOR and Tecnis multifocal IOLs, and with the Crystalens accommodating IOL. These lenses have been shown in clinical studies, and in our daily practice, to greatly reduce dependence on glasses or bifocals at near, intermediate and distance vision in patients who have undergone cataract surgery. The multifocal IOL design gives the ability to focus light correctly on the retina for images at various distances without mechanical movement of the lens. The accommodating IOL is the only approved accommodative intraocular lens to restore focusing power to the eye with the unique ability to focus on objects at varying distances using the eye's natural muscle. Our goal is to provide a full range of vision from near to far and everything in between without corrective lenses. Also, for patients with low to very high amounts of astigmatism, Toric IOLs are used to correct the vision. Dr. Younger will discuss whether theses lenses would be appropriate for your lifestyle.
