In the News
New Lens Technology
During cataract surgery, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with a permanent lens implant called an intraocular lens (IOL). Traditional monofocal IOLs are designed to correct vision near or far. A new generation of IOLs, Multifocal and Accommodative, allow both distance and near objects to be seen clearly. For patients with astigmatism, new technologies allow us to treat the cataract and correct the astigmatism at the same time.
LASIK to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism has evolved dramatically over the past 20 years. The laser is used to reshape the cornea, on the surface of the eye. All-laser LASIK is now available. The procedure time has been reduced to less than 30 seconds in most cases.
