Do you have cataracts? Are you tired of them affecting how you live your life? Chances are, it’s time to start thinking about having cataract surgery, which is the only effective treatment for cataracts.
The good news about cataract surgery is that it’s also one of the most commonly performed medical procedures you can undergo. Once you get cataract surgery, it can restore the vision you’ve lost by removing the natural lens and replacing it with an artificial lens.
This artificial lens, known as an intraocular lens (IOL) provides you with clear vision. It may even give you the best vision you’ve ever had, including before you had cataracts!
For those looking to reduce their dependence on glasses and contacts after cataract surgery, one of the best premium IOLs to consider is the PanOptix trifocal lens. This premium IOL improves your vision, allowing you to see all the tiny details that make living in Allentown so great.
Keep reading for 4 reasons to consider the PanOptix trifocal intraocular lens if you live in Allentown!
1. The PanOptix IOL is Quite Versatile
Monofocal IOLs are standard intraocular lenses that only allow patients to see at a certain distance. This is due to the fact that they have only one focal point.
For patients that choose a monofocal IOL, both eyes are usually targeted for distance because of activities like walking and driving a car. If you want to do these things, you have to be able to see far away.
If patients with a monofocal lens want to see things that are up close or an intermediate distance, they’ll need trifocal or bifocal glasses. Some premium IOLs offer multiple focal points, including multifocal lenses.
With multifocal lenses, the lens has rings that switch between the two different focal points. The eye can then look through the correct part of the lens automatically depending on what you’re seeing. This makes your vision much sharper when you’re looking at things that are up-close.
Now, with the PanOptix trifocal intraocular lens, things are a little different because it’s composed of three different parts. Each part of the lens also has separate focal points, which is one of the advantages of this premium IOL.
Having separate focal points means you can see sharply at a far distance, intermediate, and up-close. This is especially important if you’re completing tasks at an arm’s length away. The most important part is that your sharp vision is not sacrificed when you want to see things that are far away and at a distance.
The PanOptix trifocal IOL can eliminate your need for reading glasses and provide you with clear vision, no matter what you want to see. If you want to finally experience visual freedom for yourself after cataract surgery, the PanOptix trifocal lens can help you achieve it!
2. The PanOptix IOL is a Good Alternative to Monovision
Before this revolutionary trifocal lens became available, many eye doctors recommended monovision for patients that worked in front of computers regularly. With monovision, one eye would be set for distance, while the other one would be set for up-close vision.
Although it does help, monovision isn’t perfect. Many patients have trouble adjusting to monovision. Another problem with monovision is it’s not ideal if you want to look at the correct distance for viewing screens or a computer.
This may encourage patients to sit too close to their computer screens while working. Although unintentional, this kind of behavior is not good for the eyes and can lead to vision problems over time.
This is where the PanOptix trifocal lens is a good alternative to monovision. This lens helps you to see things very well at intermediate distances.
It also helps if you need to see things at middle or intermediate distances. This is perfect if you want to text on a smartphone or send emails on your computer. The best part: you don’t need to sacrifice your up-close vision either because you can have the best of both worlds with the trifocal IOL!
3. The PanOptix IOL Has an Excellent Track Record with Patients
The numbers speak for themselves: patients love the PanOptix trifocal IOL! 98% of patients that chose this IOL were not only satisfied with it, but they also said they would recommend it to a friend or a family member.
Most patients also said that after having the PanOptix trifocal IOL implanted during cataract surgery, they no longer need to use their reading glasses. This premium lens provides you with better vision, meaning you won’t need to strain to see.
You’ll also no longer need to worry about blurry vision or glare if you’re around bright lights. If you’ve missed vibrant colors because of having cataracts, the PanOptix trifocal IOL will make them look more vivid. It’s truly the ideal IOL if you want to experience the most of what life has to offer you after cataract surgery.
