Premium Lens Options

At ICON Eyecare, we offer the most advanced cataract lens implants and combine them with the newest laser technology to provide the clearest and most accurate results possible. Following cataract removal, an intraocular lens (IOL) is placed inside your eye to replace your natural eye lens. With the advancement of cataract surgery and lens replacement options, patients may now be able to see clearly for the first time in years.

Intraocular lenses work by replacing the focusing power of your eye’s natural lens. Choosing premium IOLs gives you the best possible vision. With premium IOLs, many people never need glasses after cataract surgery, or only wear them occasionally.

Your doctor will thoroughly evaluate your eyes before recommending the best lens implant for you. We’ll also talk about your work, hobbies, and other activities to make sure your IOL fits your lifestyle.

Your IOL options for cataract surgery include:

  • Standard (single-focus) IOLs
  • Monovision IOLs
  • Multifocal IOLs with Laser-Assisted Technology
  • Toric IOLs with Laser-Assisted Technology

  • Standard IOLs (Single-focus)

    Standard IOLs, also called single-focus or monofocal IOLs, correct your vision for distance or near, but not both. They also do not correct for astigmatism, which can create blurred vision at all distances.

    If you choose an IOL for distance vision, you may still need glasses for reading and other close-up activities. If you choose an IOL for near vision, you might wear glasses to drive or see objects at a distance.

    If you would like to reduce your dependency on glasses while still choosing the standard IOL cataract replacement option, your surgeon may incorporate laser technology to eliminate any astigmatism.

    When cataract surgery is medically necessary, standard IOLs are covered by your insurance company.

  • Monovision IOLs

    You might choose an intraocular lens for distance vision in one eye and an IOL for near vision in the other eye. This is called monovision. Many patients who wear contact lenses or have had refractive surgery function well with monovision cataract implants.

    If you are interested in this option but are new to monovision, your doctor will discuss options for trialing the visual experience before cataract surgery to ensure a successful outcome.

  • Multifocal IOLs

    The experienced eye surgeons at ICON Eyecare utilize only the latest technology, including the Tecnis® Multifocal IOL because of its superior clinical results when compared to standard multifocal implants. Nearly 9 out of 10 patients do not need glasses after cataract surgery with Tecnis® Multifocal lenses and 94% of patients say they would choose this IOL again. The Tecnis® lens performed above other multifocal implants in visual quality, glare, and ability to see in low lighting conditions.

    The Tecnis® Multifocal IOL has a diffractive, aspheric design that focuses light from distance, intermediate, and near to greatly reduce or eliminate the need for glasses. Like wearing bifocals, there is a short adaptation period where the brain learns how to use the new optical system effectively.

    Your ICON Eyecare doctor will discuss your IOL options and if you are a candidate for a multifocal IOL. Together, we will help you select the best lens for your needs.

  • Toric IOLs

    Toric IOLs correct astigmatism, further reducing your dependency on glasses. Standard IOLs don’t correct astigmatism without additional procedures, so you may need glasses to see clearly even after cataract surgery. If you want better vision without glasses, a toric IOL could be for you.

    A consultation appointment with your ICON Eyecare doctor will help determine if you’re a good candidate for a toric astigmatism correction IOL.

  • Choosing an Intraocular Lens (IOL)

    Because your vision is so important to everything you do, selecting an intraocular lens for your cataract surgery is a very personal decision. At ICON Eyecare, your doctor will help you consider all your options. We have advised thousands of patients, and are familiar with the latest technology in premium and standard IOLs. Talk with your ICON Eyecare doctor about the best lens for your eyes, and your lifestyle.
