6 Reasons Why Premium Lenses Will Change Your Life and Vision

When cataracts become advanced, they can make it hard to see. However, cataract surgery restores all vision loss due to cataracts by removing them entirely. 

This is done by removing your natural lens, which cataracts form on, impairing your vision and ability to see clearly. However, you won’t be left without a lens in your eye when you remove your natural lens. 

Instead, you’ll replace the natural lens with an intraocular lens (IOL). There are many kinds of IOLs. Which sort of IOL you choose will determine your vision after cataract surgery and whether you’ll need visual aids.

Standard IOLs are monofocal lenses, which help you see well up close or far away. However, these IOLs can only correct vision at one distance. 

That means you’ll still need glasses to see at the uncorrected distance and reading glasses to see up close. But premium IOLs are different. 

After cataract surgery, premium lenses can significantly improve your vision. In some cases, patients may achieve better visual acuity than they had before developing cataracts. 

Keep reading to learn about 6 reasons premium lenses will change your life and vision! 

1. Better Vision After Cataract Surgery

Premium IOLs are designed to give patients sharper, clearer vision after cataract surgery. Many premium lenses are specifically designed to offer incredibly good vision up close, correcting presbyopia. 

Presbyopia is common in cataract patients and affects most adults in their 40s or older. It’s an age-related eye condition that makes the natural lens less flexible. 

Premium IOLs can improve vision by allowing you to see much better up close, so you can see much more clearly without sacrificing your distance vision!

2. See Well at Many Distances

Monofocal lenses help you see well up close or at a distance. Premium lenses are designed to help you see at several distances, including up close, far away, and intermediate distances.

Premium IOLs provide clearer vision up close, far away, and even at a middle distance. With a more expansive range of vision, you’ll be able to see well no matter what you’re doing! 

If you’re tired of feeling like your life is being held back because you can’t see clearly due to cataracts and want to improve your vision, a premium lens could be the answer you’ve been looking for.

3. Reduced Dependence on Reading Glasses

Since many premium IOLs help correct presbyopia, they can significantly reduce your dependence on reading glasses. Many patients who choose a premium IOL even report that they rarely or never need to use reading glasses after having cataract surgery! 

By reducing your dependence on reading glasses, you can have more freedom in your daily life. You’ll also save time by not having to search for your readers when you have to read some fine print!

4. So Many Options to Choose From

There are many different kinds of premium lenses. At Williamson Eye Center, we offer many of the most advanced premium lenses available. This includes multifocal lenses, EDOF (Extended Depth of Focus), trifocal lenses, and even the revolutionary Light Adjustable Lens!

All these lenses have different advantages and can help you see much better after cataract surgery. But the Light Adjustable Lens (LAL) is especially beneficial as it’s the only IOL that can give you the option of customizable vision! 

It’s made from a light-reactive material, so it can be adjusted to fit your exact visual needs after it’s implanted and your eye heals from cataract surgery. Your eye doctor can recommend which kind of premium lens might be best for your needs, goals for cataract surgery, and budget. 

They’ll help you make an informed decision so you can be delighted with your choice and achieve your best vision!

5. Correct Presbyopia and Refractive Errors at the Same Time

Premium lenses can correct not only presbyopia but also other existing refractive errors. If you wear prescription glasses or contact lenses and reading glasses, a premium lens can help reduce your dependence on both!

Premium lenses specifically designed to correct astigmatism are also available. At Williamson Eye Center, we offer toric lenses and the Apthera IOL, both of which can correct mild astigmatism. Even if you have a complicated prescription, you may be able to find a premium lens that can reduce your dependence on visual aids. 

6. Live Your Life to the Fullest

Premium lenses are an excellent choice for anyone who’s more active. These IOLS help you see better and reduce the need for other visual aids, making it easier to do more. 

You may be physically active and enjoy hiking, golfing, or a variety of sports. You may be an avid artist who enjoys painting or crafting. 

Or you may be a social butterfly who likes to go out with friends. No matter how you stay active, a premium lens can help. 

Premium lenses can enhance your life by helping you improve your performance, develop a better eye for detail, and have better vision for your favorite social activities, like going out with your friends to eat, seeing a new movie, or doing yoga to keep limber. Why would you choose anything else when you can experience better vision, no matter what you’re doing?
