Can IOL’s Correct Presbyopia?

The intraocular lens is an ophthalmologic device designed to replace the eye’s natural lens. Once the problematic crystalline lens is surgically removed, an IOL is implanted in its place to improve vision and reduce dependence on glasses.

Today’s modern IOLs can treat cataracts (cloudy formations on the lens) and presbyopia (near vision loss due to weakening of the lens). IOLs have been used for years to combat the vision impairing effects of cataract growth. Only recently have intraocular lenses made the transition from cataract-only to refractive function. When an IOL is used to improve general vision, it is referred to as a refractive IOL. The refractive IOLs used at Advanced Eye & Laser Center of California, Inc., are chosen for their excellent benefits and ability to promote clear vision at all distances.

IOL technology to combat presyopia has come a long way. While early IOLs only had monofocal capabilities, today’s advanced IOLs are multifocal, meaning they can correct vision at varying distances.

At Advanced Eye & Laser Center of California, Inc., we offer these state of the are intraocular lenses to correct presbyopia:

ReZoom — ReZoom uses apodized refractive technology to give patients good vision at near, far and in-between distances.

ReSTOR — ReSTOR provides incredible vision enhancement at all distances using a patented zone system design.

Crystalens — Crystalens is a pioneering single-focus lens that allows patients to maintain focus while switching between distances.

IOLs can correct vision impaired by cataracts or presbyopia. Learn more at your free IOL consultation.

Are you too dependent on your bifocals and fed up with the visual limitations that occur with age? Presbyopia treatment is available with state-of-the-art multifocal lens replacements.

How are ReSTOR, ReZoom, and Crystalens different?
