Advanced Technology for Cataracts

Advanced Technology Replacement Lenses

As we age, our natural crystalline lens begins to harden and yellow. This hardened, yellow lens is known as a cataract. During Cataract Surgery, the cataract is removed and an Intraocular lens implant (IOL) is put in its place. After surgery, you have both eliminated your cataracts and corrected your vision in the process with a brand new lens.

Due to advances in technology, there are now many types of lenses that can be customized to your unique vision needs and lifestyle.

Trifocal Lens Technology

Vantage Eye Center is proud to provide a solution for patients with presbyopia with the recent FDA approval of Alcon’s Acrysof IQ PanOptix Trifocal IOL. With this advanced technology, the trifocal lens will allow cataract and refractive lens exchange patients to correct for immediate, near, and distance vision. Before this advanced lens, all multifocal lenses in the United States only corrected vision at two distances.

The Trifocal IOL is now available for all qualified Vantage Eye Center patients interested in improving their vision with this state-of-the-art technology.

Standard Lenses

This basic lens provides a single focus distance vision. Because of this, those who wish to correct their vision at both near and far distances will still need to supplement their vision with glasses. For those that don’t mind wearing glasses for certain tasks, standard lenses are a great option. Our cataract specialists can help walk you through your options and find the lens that is best suited for you and your desired outcome after surgery.

Multifocal Lenses

Multifocal or Accommodating Correction

Where a standard lens provides vision at a single distance, an advanced technology lens such as a multifocal or accommodating IOL, will be the best choice if you want to maximize your ability to focus at varying distances while minimizing your dependency on glasses.

Recent advancements in multifocal technology now make it possible for people to see at multiple distances without the help of magnifying glasses or bifocals (even trifocals). You can experience your vision close-up while reading the paper or your favorite book and then enjoy seeing at a distance when you’re looking at the sunset or watching TV. These lenses have the ability to consistently offer improved vision at various ranges.

For people who are active and are inhibited by wearing glasses, multifocal lenses are a premium option that can accommodate you and your favorite activities.

TORIC Lenses

Distance and Astigmatic Correction

Those with astigmatism (irregular shape of the cornea that requires glasses for correction), may elect for a lens that addresses astigmatism providing natural distance vision. The most advanced method of distance correction uses a lens called a toric lens. The toric lens incorporates unique optics to compensate for specific deficiencies in your vision. Astigmatism correction may be the best choice for you if you would like to further improve your quality of vision and reduce your dependency on glasses.


A Revolutionary New Technology to Optimize the Best Possible Vision During Cataract Surgery

Vantage Eye Center is proud to announce yet another FDA-approved technology aimed at improving vision with cataract surgery. This new device is called ORA., Optiwave Refractive Analyzer.

ORA provides an analysis of your eye during cataract surgery that is not possible with conventional measurements and instruments. The technology works by directing an invisible beam of low-intensity light into the eye during cataract surgery. This light then reflects back from the eye and sensors within the ORA device analyze the eye’s unique optical characteristics. This information then allows our surgeons to choose the most accurate intraocular lens implant and more accurately correct astigmatism for every patient who chooses to use this technology.

Ideal candidates are patients who want the most accurate results, patients who choose advanced technology implants like multifocal, accommodative, and toric implants, patients who desire more accurate astigmatism corrections, patients with prior PRK or LASIK, and in conjunction with LenSx (laser cataract surgery).

For more information about ORA and what it can do for you, please feel free to discuss this with our cataract refractive team.

Benefits of ORA

  • ORA analysis is used to optimize any cataract procedure regardless of the lens that you and your surgeon select
  • Your surgeon will receive an ORA analysis that will guide the correction of your eye to help ensure optimal outcomes
  • If you have astigmatism, ORA may improve the accuracy of your correction to help reduce the chance that you will need eyeglasses after your cataract treatment
