Intraocular Lenses from your Orange County eye surgeon are selected just for you

For many years, individuals who underwent cataract removal surgery were only able to restore some degree of clarity with contact lenses or, in most cases, thick eyeglasses. Today, surgeons such as Dr. George Salib routinely remove cataracts and immediately place intraocular lenses. The term "intraocular" means inside the eye. This fixture is different from a contact lens because it remains in the eye at all times. The goal of treatment in our Orange County facility is to address the primary issue of cataracts while restoring optimal visual acuity with the right intraocular lens.

Replacement lenses have been improving for more than fifty years. FDA approval was granted in 1981. Since that time, millions of patients around the world have been able to regain a better quality of life after cataract surgery. One of the most notable benefits to IOL treatment is that, whatever type you choose, your body will accept it. Synthetic lenses are made from materials that are biologically inert. This treatment has a decades-long success rate that gives you peace of mind as you choose to have cataracts removed. Once inserted, the IOL remains stable and functional for your lifetime.

Which type of intraocular lens to use requires consideration. For optimal results, patients rely on the knowledge of their eye surgeon. Dr. Salib relies on information from patients to determine which type of lens is appropriate. Because there is such variety among IOLs today, patients can decide whether they want to continue wearing corrective eyewear after cataract removal or if they would prefer intraocular lenses designed for vision correction at various distances.

In a 2013 study published in Ophthalmology online, research demonstrated that patients with multifocal lenses versus monofocal were less in need of corrective glasses or contacts but more likely to need to replace their IOL at some point.
