With premium IOL placement in Laguna Hills, CA, dependence on glasses is cut drastically

The growth of a cataract or cataracts can severely impede a person's ability to see his or her surroundings clearly. Because cataracts are more of a nuisance than a serious health threat, the timing of removal is largely determined by the patient. The purpose of cataract surgery is to restore the eye's ability to absorb light by removing the cloudy lens. Because the lens is removed, cataract surgery also involves the placement of a new lens, called an intraocular lens, or IOL.

One of the interesting facets of cataract surgery is that some people discover, once their lens is replaced, they had a vision problem that was hidden behind cloudiness. Using advanced diagnostic technologies, your experienced eye specialist can determine the potential need for premium IOL placement. In our Laguna Hills, CA eye institute, patients may benefit greatly from this upgrade, intended to correct vision problems like astigmatism or presbyopia.

Astigmatism correction

Astigmatism is an eye condition in which vision is blurred or distorted due to an oval shaped cornea. In an ideal situation, the cornea is spherical in shape. When the shape of the lens deviates from this, light rays cannot meet at a precise focal point.

Standard lens implants are typically set to facilitate either near vision or distance vision. In order for a person with astigmatism to experience clearer vision, it is necessary to correct the shape of the lens so that light may be focused more accurately. This correction can be accomplished by the insertion of a TORIC lens implant after cataract removal. This premium IOL may be set to improve distance vision or near vision, with a prescription eyeglass designed to facilitate the opposite.

IOL for presbyopia

The vision distortion that comes from presbyopia is not linked to the shape of the cornea. This distortion is associated with the natural aging process that leads to a decrease in flexibility within the natural lens. Many men and women in their forties and beyond begin to notice reading fine print is more difficult due to the changes in the structure of the eye. Today, it is possible to improve presbyopia after cataract surgery using multifocal premium lens implants.

Your experienced eye surgeon can help you determine the best way to minimize your dependence on eyeglasses following cataract removal surgery. Contact the Orange County Eye Institute to schedule a consultation.
