Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)

Problems affecting the natural lens of your eye, such as cataracts, can cloud your vision and make daily life more difficult.

At Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists, we can restore blurred vision with the highest quality intraocular lenses.

So what makes IOLs a good treatment choice?

Replacing the Natural Lens Can Restore Clear Vision and Address Refractive Errors

Cataracts refer to the crystalline lenses becoming clouded, resulting in gradual distortion of vision and eventual vision loss. However, by removing the lenses and replacing them with IOLs, we can restore the quality of your vision. With a range of IOLs, we can accommodate most levels of farsightedness, nearsightedness, or astigmatism to reduce your dependency on corrective eyewear.

Types of Intraocular Lens Implants

Ultimately, your Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists surgeon will help you select the most appropriate lens to be used in the cataract surgery procedure. There are three main types of intraocular lens implants: monofocal, multifocal, and toric. At our LeesburgEustis, and Clermont locations, patients have access to all types of IOLs.

The Monofocal Lens

The original type of IOL, the monofocal lens remains the artificial lens of choice for many patients. The monofocal lens corrects vision at only one distance, meaning it cannot compensate for both near and far-sighted vision. For this reason, contact lenses or glasses (especially reading glasses) will still be needed after surgical implantation. Many experts believe the quality of long-distance vision is better with the monofocal lens, although it will not correct corneal astigmatism.

The Multifocal Lens

Patients are showing more interest in the multifocal lens at Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists. Unlike the monofocal lens, it has the power to correct vision across various distances.

The three main kinds of multifocal IOLs are:

  • Refractive
  • apodized diffractive

After surgical implantation, you may have a greatly reduced dependence on glasses and contact lenses! Because the multifocal lens can correct both near and far vision, the brain will need a period of adjustment to reinterpret images at different distances.

Ask your Fishman & Sheridan eyeCare Specialists doctor about toric lenses, which may be ideal for people who suffer from astigmatism.
