Advancements in IOL technology mean that there are lenses available that can correct a range of vision problems and meet a variety of patient needs. The eye doctors at Parkhurst NuVision are dedicated to evaluating each individual cataract patient and customizing the IOL choice that is best for YOUR vision, unique eyes, and lifestyle.
What Is an Intraocular Lens (IOL)?
When you have cataract surgery, the “cataract”—your eye’s cloudy lens—is removed and replaced with an artificial lens. This is an intraocular lens, commonly called an IOL. The earliest versions of the modern IOL date back to World War II, but the last few decades have brought a flurry of innovation and today there are more options than ever!
The team at Parkhurst NuVision performs laser cataract surgery with a wide variety of IOL options in order to achieve vastly improved post-surgical vision. Many patients who previously wore glasses or contact lenses experience the best vision of their lives after cataract surgery!
Types of IOLs
- Single-Focus Lenses
- Accommodating IOLs
- Multifocal and Trifocal IOLs
- Extended Depth of Focus IOLs (EDOF)
- Light Adjusting Lenses (LAL)
