Advanced Technology Implants

Advanced technology implants are lens implants used primarily after cataract surgery to either help restore near reading abilities or correct for astigmatism. However, the Restor and the CrystaLens are now available for clear lens exchanges in patients who wish to decrease the need for glasses before cataract surgery is needed. These lenses are not covered by insurance, but please see our financing options.

Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are medical devices that are implanted inside the eye to replace the eye's natural lens when it is removed during cataract surgery.  Some premium intraocular lenses correct astigmatism as well as nearsightedness or farsightedness.

Multifocal IOLs are another category of presbyopia-correcting IOLs that can decrease your need for reading glasses or computer glasses after cataract surgery. These lenses provide magnification in different parts of the lens to expand your range of vision so you can see objects clearly at all distances without glasses or contact lenses.
