Cataract Treatment Options
Vision Correction Uniquely Designed for Those 50 Years and Older – Reduce your dependence on eyeglasses!
Cataract treatments are the most commonly performed procedures worldwide, with about 15 million completed each year. At Clearview Vision Institute we offer our patients the option of cataract treatment to restore good vision at a distance, or to treat both the cataract and presbyopia with a procedure we call Near Vision Restoration. Both involve removing your natural crystalline lens and replacing it with a high-resolution lens called an intraocular lens (IOL) implant. Today’s IOLs are designed to more closely mimic the performance of a young, healthy eye.
What is the right option?
Let Us Help Design a Vision Correction Plan Specifically For You. The Clearview team of experts are here to help you make the right vision correction decision based on your individual lifestyle and vision goals.
- Traditional intraocular lens (IOL) implant: This type of IOL will correct blurry vision caused by cataracts and restore good distance vision for most people. However, this type of lens does not provide correction of near vision or astigmatism. You will still need to wear eyeglasses after your cataract procedure.
- High-resolution IOL implant: These lenses are designed to provide sharp vision in a range of light conditions, such as driving at night or dusk, or reading a menu in a dim restaurant. These lenses can correct astigmatism, and most people see well enough at a distance to function without eyeglasses during activities like driving or playing golf. You will, however, need eyeglasses for nearsighted activities like reading or working on a computer.
- Presbyopia-correcting IOL implant: A high-resolution, presbyopia-correcting IOL can restore clear distance vision as well as provide Near Vision Restoration for reading and using a computer. In most cases, patients with Near Vision Restoration (IOLs) can perform most of their daily activities without dependence on eyeglasses.
