Do you have cataracts? Having cataracts can be incredibly frustrating.
When you get cataract surgery, you can look forward to being able to see clearly again. But most people who have cataract surgery also have presbyopia.
Like cataracts, presbyopia primarily affects adults over the age of 40. It makes it hard to focus up close, which is why so many middle-aged people need reading glasses.
But you can restore your vision from cataracts and reduce your presbyopia simultaneously by choosing the PanOptix trifocal lens. With this intraocular lens, you’ll have better eyesight than before you had cataracts after cataract surgery.
Why? It all has to do with how thePanOptix trifocal IOL helps you see. Keep reading to discover how the PanOptix trifocal IOL will help you reduce your dependence on visual aids!
IOL is short for intraocular lens. When you have cataract surgery, you’ll have your natural lens removed. Removing the natural lens is the only way to remove the cataract formed on it.
But a crucial component of cataract surgery is replacing the natural lens with an intraocular lens. An intraocular lens lets you see clearly and improves your vision, especially if you choose a premium lens.
There are different kinds of IOLs. The standard option is a monofocal IOL, usually covered by insurance and the surgery cost.
However, a monofocal IOL can help you see either up close or far away. You’ll still need reading glasses or regular glasses to see at the opposite distance.
Some patients opt for monovision with monofocal IOLs. Monovision puts a lens for seeing up close in one eye and a lens for seeing at a distance in the other eye to provide improved vision. However, monovision only works for some people and may not reduce dependence on visual aids.
Premium IOLs, on the other hand, offer better vision after cataract surgery by giving you a more comprehensive range of vision. They are paid out-of-pocket, but the expense is well worth it for many patients, especially concerning the PanOptix trifocal IOL.
The PanOptix IOL can eliminate the need for visual aids entirely, making it appealing to patients.
Monofocal lenses are uniform all over with one focal point. Some premium IOLs, called multifocals, are composed of rings that alternate between two focal points, with one far away and one close up.
Your eye automatically looks through the part of the lens that best helps you see what you’re looking at. But a trifocal lens gives you even better vision at more distances.
How? By switching between three focal points rather than just two!
Like the multifocal, the trifocal is composed of different sections that alternate. One is for seeing close up, one is for seeing far away, and one is for seeing at an intermediate distance.
This design allows patients to see better at a middle distance than both standard monofocal and multifocal lenses! By giving you such a broad range of vision, the PanOptix trifocal lens can significantly reduce your need for reading glasses and other visual aids.
Other premium IOLs can help you see better up close, and most allow you to improve your vision at a distance well enough. But the PanOptix trifocal IOL enables you to see well up close and at a middle distance, with moderate distance vision.
With a broader range of vision, you can do more without switching between prescription glasses and reading glasses. Most patients who choose the PanOptix trifocal lens report that they rarely or never need to use reading glasses!
With better vision and fewer visual aids to depend on, choosing the PanOptix trifocal IOL will allow you to do more and see more of what you want.
The PanOptix trifocal IOL is an excellent choice for patients who enjoy various lifestyles. Active patients who enjoy tennis, golfing, and boating can see and perform better, knowing they don’t have to depend on visual aids to see.
Artists, crafters, and those that love reading will be able to see up close much better for an easier time doing fine-focus tasks. Electronics users can see well at a healthy distance from the screen, allowing you to see what you’re doing on your computer or phone without holding it too close to your eyes.
Being too close to your screen or digital device can cause eye strain, fatigue, and other symptoms associated with excessive screen exposure. But with great intermediate vision, you can use your electronic screens without harming your eyes!
Besides, what’s not to love about having crisp, clear vision that makes colors look brighter and details feel like they are in high-definition? With the PanOptix trifocal IOL, you’ll experience vision as it should be, without limitations!
