Premium Lens Implants for Eyes - North Florida Cataract and Vision

Premium Lens Implants

Before you proceed with cataract surgery, you and your ophthalmologist should discuss the various lens options that are available to you.

The intraocular lens implant, or IOL, replaces the cloudy natural lens, or cataract, that is removed from the eye during cataract surgery. With today’s technological advances, IOLs can lessen or even eliminate the need for glasses for most activities. 

The most frequently implanted IOL in the world, the ACRYSOF IOL by Alcon, is appreciated by physicians and patients for its unmatched stability and long term clinical results. The ACRYSOF family of IOLs offers a variety of lens options:

  • ACRYSOF IQ monofocal IOL: The ACRYSOF IQ lens has properties within it that block harmful UV rays, decrease visual aberrations, and enhance your vision. A monofocal lens allows you to see at one focal length without glasses. For example, you may choose to set your vision to see clearly at distance without glasses, which means you would need glasses for intermediate and near activities.
  • ACRYSOF IQ Toric Aspheric IOL: The ACRYSOF IQ Toric lens may be a good option for patients with cataracts and astigmatism, correcting both conditions by delivering astigmatic correction and quality vision without glasses. It is also a monofocal lens, which means you will still need glasses for some activities.
  • ACRYSOF IQ RESTOR IOL: The ACRYSOF RESTOR is the leading multifocal IOL on the market. This lens corrects vision at both distance and near, eliminating the need for glasses for most activities.
  • ACRYSOF IQ RESTOR Multifocal TORIC IOL: The latest and most anticipated IOL to hit the market, the ACRYSOF RESTOR Multifocal TORIC IOL combines the technology of the RESTOR multifocal lens with the astigmatic correction of the TORIC IOL. Now patients with significant amounts of astigmatism can choose a multifocal IOL that corrects at distance and near, and will eliminate the need for glasses for most activities.
