If your cataracts have started to affect your quality of life, it may be time for cataract surgery. Cataract surgery is the only effective treatment for cataracts.
It’s also one of the most commonly performed medical procedures. Cataract surgery can completely restore any vision lost to cataracts by removing your eye’s natural lens where the cataract has formed.
That lens is then replaced by an artificial one called an intraocular lens, or IOL. For many people that have cataract surgery, choosing an IOL provides them with the best vision they’ve ever had in their life!
One of the best premium IOLs on the market is the PanOptix trifocal lens. This IOL can improve your vision and make daily life in Fort Worth all the more enjoyable. Keep reading for 4 reasons why the PanOptix trifocal lens is worth considering if you live in Fort Worth!
1. A Versatile IOL
Standard IOLs, called monofocal IOLs, are intraocular lenses set to see at a certain distance. They only have one focal point.
Usually, both eyes are targeted for distance because driving and walking around are the most indispensable activities and require seeing far away.
However, all patients will need bifocal or trifocal glasses to see near and intermediate objects. Some premium lenses have multiple focal points, like the multifocal IOL.
With multifocal lenses, they have rings that switch between two focal points. The eye automatically looks through the right part of the lens depending on what you’re looking at, making your vision sharper up-close.
The PanOptix trifocal lens, however, is composed of three different parts. Each part of the lens has separate focal points.
Having separate focal points allows you to see sharply up close and at intermediate distances. Most importantly, of course, you can still see clearly when you want to look at things that are at a distance and far away.
This premium lens can eliminate the need for reading glasses while also enabling you to see well no matter what you’re looking at. If you’re searching for visual freedom after cataract surgery, or you want to depend less on glasses, the PanOptix trifocal lens is definitely worth considering!
2. It’s a Great Alternative to Monovision
Before the trifocal lens was available, eye doctors recommended monovision for patients that spent a lot of time in front of electronics like computers frequently. With the monovision approach, one eye is set for distance and the other eye for near.
The problem is that they aren’t ideal if you want to look at the proper distance that’s necessary for viewing a computer or screen. This inadvertently can encourage a patient to sit too close to the computer, which isn’t good for your eyes and can cause several visual problems.
But the trifocal lens doesn’t only help you see up close. It also enables you to see well at middle distances. Having this ability is perfect for safely using anything with a screen.
And you don’t have to sacrifice your close-up vision either because you can have both if you choose the PanOptix trifocal IOL!
3. The PanOptix Trifocal Lens Has a Solid Track Record
Patients love the PanOptix trifocal lens! 98% of patients with this premium IOL were not only satisfied but said they would recommend them to a friend or family member.
The vast majority of patients also report that they no longer need to use reading glasses after having the PanOptix trifocal lens implanted. The PanOptix lens allows you to see better without straining with blurry vision and glare from bright lights.
It even makes colors appear more vivid! All in all, it’s the perfect intraocular lens for anyone who wants the most out of cataract surgery.
