Tidewater Eye Centers is excited to announce that we now offer a revolutionary new replacement lens for patients undergoing cataract surgery. The Alcon AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal intraocular lens (IOL) is the first and only trifocal lens that has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for patients in the U.S.
Why Are Our Cataract Doctors So Excited About This Lens?
More than 70 countries around the world have been using this lens to help cataract patients achieve an exceptional combination of near, intermediate and distance vision after surgery. The result is that many are able to significantly reduce their need for glasses after surgery because the range of clear vision is so great. Now this same technology is available in the U.S.
If you’ve had cloudy, yellowed vision for quite a while (because of your cataracts), in addition to other vision challenges such as presbyopia (blurry reading vision), it may seem like an impossibility to see clearly again. Our doctors want to significantly improve your vision and your life with this new lens. The proprietary design behind the PanOptix lens (ENLIGHTEN™ Optical Technology) allows many patients to perform tasks likes these without glasses: reading labels on medicine boxes or bottles, working on a computer and driving!
The PanOptix lens is another type of Lifestyle Lens option at Tidewater Eye Centers. Like other replacement lens options, this lens is permanently placed into your eye. You won’t be able to feel the new lens but you will certainly know that it is improving your eyesight.
