If you or someone you know will be undergoing cataract surgery, talk to one of our ophthalmologists at Berkshire Eye Center about what IOL may be best for you.
Please consider your choices in the following summary of the most recently developed IOLs.
We offer our patients the latest in IOL technology including the accommodative Crystalens HD, the Re STOR & Tecnis multifocal IOLs and the astigmatism correcting Toric IOLs.
We offer the latest generation of multifocal IOLs with astigmatism correction and the Implantable Collamer Lens as an option in correcting refractive errors.
If you or someone you know is suffering from Cataract and is considering treatment, consider Multifocal Lens implants the latest in implant technology which not only treats the Cataract but also turns back the clock to enable seeing both close and distance without glasses.
In fact 92% of the patients after receiving these implants report that they "never or occasionally" need to use spectacles for their daily routine life.
Premium IOLs: Multifocal & Accommodating Traditional IOLs are monofocal, meaning they offer vision at one distance only (far, intermediate or near).
They definitely are an improvement over the cataractous lens that is replaced during surgery, which provides only cloudy, blurred vision at any distance.
It’s free on the NHS and has been used safely for many years.
