What are Premium Lenses?
Read & Share
During cataract surgery, the natural lens (cataract) is removed and surgically replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). The standard IOL corrects for one distance, either near vision or distance vision. Patients will often wear glasses after cataract surgery with the standard lenses. Premium lenses are of two basic types; astigmatism correcting and mutli-focal lenses. The astigmatism correcting lenses are called toric lenses and correct for an irregular cornea in patients who have astigmatism. Multi-focal lenses use special technology to allow patients to see at near, intermediate, and distance without glasses.
