Advanced intraocular lens technology now allows Dr. Violin and Dr. Moreira to customize your surgical outcome to fit your lifestyle. Intraocular lenses, or IOL’s, are the artificial lenses used to replace the natural lens of the eye when it is removed either due to a cataract, or because the patient has chosen to have a refractive lens exchange procedure. With the advanced technology of today’s multifocal and accommodating intraocular lenses, it is possible for patients, after undergoing cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange, to greatly reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses or contact lenses.
After a comprehensive eye exam, our highly experienced staff consult with each patient to discuss their surgical options. Careful consideration of each patient’s lifestyle, needs, expectations, and personal eye health is used to determine the best course of surgical treatment.
Dr. Violin feels that educating each patient about the advanced technology available creates a clear understanding of their options and helps each patient to feel knowledgeable and comfortable in making a decision about a customized procedure.
With the current intraocular lens technology offered by the ReSTOR multifocal intraocular lens, the Tecnis multifocal intraocular lens, it is possible for patients to see well at distance, intermediate, and near focal points after cataract or refractive lens exchange surgery. With the Acrysof Toric astigmatism correcting intraocular lens, it is possible to reduce or eliminate the astigmatism, and treat the cataract at the same time. At Medical Eye Care Associates, we are pleased to offer all these options to our patients.
