Common Types of IOLs
There are so many types of IOLs on the market today, it’s hard to know which one may work best for you and will reap the most benefits.
At Heritage Eye Center, we are proud to offer the following forms of IOLs:
- Monofocal (traditional lens implants) - When cataract surgery is performed, the clouded lens will need to be removed and replaced by an IOL within the eye. The IOL will allow more light to get into the eye and the retina thus producing a clear image.
- Multifocal - Multifocal IOL lens implants correct both near and far distance vision in patients after surgery. The multifocal lens is designed to reduce your dependence on glasses for near, intermediate, and at a distance compared to a monofocal lens.
- Toric - Toric IOLs are special in the sense that they are used for the treatment with patients suffering from astigmatism. There are alternative methods of treating astigmatism, but consulting with your doctor prior to any decision being made is your best choice.
For additional questions or concerns on our IOLs, call us at (972) 430-4764 today.
