Lens Implant Options
You have options of lenses you want implanted. This implant will determine your quality of vision for the rest of your life. Your options will include Basic Monofocal Lens, Vivity and PanOptix.
This type of lens allows you to see clearly far away and at arm’s length while still providing functional vision up close, so you may need at least some reading glasses. Here are some statistical results from patients after 6 months with Vivity:
- 94% reported good or very good vision far away without glasses in bright light
- 92% reported good or very good vision at arm’s length without glasses in bright light
- Many reported less bothersome glare
This particular lens gives you a full range of vision, so that you can immerse in a full range of activities – all while relying less on glasses. Overall, you can see far away with clear vision, see at arm’s length with advanced intermediate vision, and see up close with excellent near vision. No glasses needed, but possible light glare at night. This is what patients said about PanOptix:
- 99% of people with the PanOptix lens would choose the same lens again
- 98% of people with the PanOptix lens would recommend it to family and friends
This type of lens is specifically for astigmatism - correcting cataract replacement lens. This would give you the potential to have clearer vision and less need for contacts or glasses. If you have cataracts and astigmatism, ask you doctor if you're eligible for Alcon Toric.
Basic Monofocal Lens
Although this is covered by insurance, this type of lens will only give you the ability to see at a distance. You would still need glasses after surgery to see at arm’s length and up close.
