What is a Premium Intraocular Lens?

An intraocular lens (IOL) is an artificial lens that is implanted into the eye during cataract surgery. The intraocular lens acts as a replacement for the eye’s natural lens (or cloudy lens) which is removed during the surgery. At ICON, we are proud to offer the latest innovations in cataract eye surgery and advanced IOLs. The team at ICON Eyecare will help you understand your lens options and choose the best intraocular lenses for your lifestyle during your consultation.

Intraocular Lens Types

  • Monofocal IOL: A regular IOL is a monofocal lens, and the majority of people will still require some vision aid like glasses or contact lenses to have clear distance vision. Many people who choose to have a monofocal IOL choose to want it for long-distance and use glasses for reading.
  • Toric IOL: An additional IOL option is a type of premium IOL called a toric lens, which is used to correct astigmatism. The lens can actually correct the vision problem created by astigmatism, eliminating your need for glasses.
  • Multifocal IOL: A premium intraocular lens can be multifocal or allow the person to accommodate. This means a person with multifocal lenses can see at different distances (near, far, and middle distances) without needing glasses.

ICON Eyecare Lens Options

At ICON Eyecare, we offer a variety of lenses to help you reach your vision goals following cataract surgery. Our lens options include:

Which Lens is Right for Me?

The best lens depends on your needs. All artificial intraocular lens will correct vision for cataract patients, but your lifestyle and eyesight improvement needs will help determine the best fit.

If you’re comfortable wearing glasses after cataract surgery, monofocal lenses may be the right choice. If you want to avoid wearing distance glasses after cataract surgery and have astigmatism, a toric lens might be appropriate. A multifocal lens may be best if you don’t want to wear distance and reading glasses after cataract surgery.

Is the Cataract Surgery Different Based on the Lens I Choose?

The surgical procedure is the same regardless of lens type. Your surgeon will perform either traditional or laser cataract surgery to restore clear vision.
