You Have Lens Implant Choices

Dr. Sean Lalin specializes in advanced lens replacement. Once you decide to have cataract surgery, you will have a choice to replace your clouded lens with either a traditional single-focus lens or an advanced multiple-focus lens implant ( multifocal IOL ) that provides a fuller range of vision.

Vision After Cataract Surgery

Older-style lens implants provide clear vision at a single focus point, usually in the distance. Newer lens implants provide a broader range of vision, improving your sight for a fuller range of near, intermediate and distance objects. Most patients who choose this lens type for their surgery do so because they’d like to be free of glasses the majority of their day.

Until recently, cataract patients had few choices of implants used to restore their vision after cataract surgery. With the advanced lens implants offered at Lalin Eye, you now have choices based on your individual visual needs and lifestyle.

Full Range Vision with Multifocal Lens Implants

Multifocal lens implants, such as PanOptix IOL and Vivity IOL, provide good vision at all distances and are available for Lalin Eye patients in Hackettstown and Morristown, New Jersey. Following a thorough cataract evaluation with Dr. Lalin or Dr. Shah, one of these advanced lens implants may be chosen to replace your eye’s clouded natural lens ( cataract ) during cataract surgery. In addition to restoring clear vision after cataract surgery, multifocal lens implants also treat presbyopia, or difficulty focusing up-close due to aging eyes.

Distance Vision & Astigmatism Correction

Astigmatism is a condition where the cornea is shaped more like a football, rather than round like a basketball. The irregular shape causes light rays to scatter when entering the eye, resulting in blurry vision instead of providing a single focal point. There are two ways we correct astigmatism during cataract surgery. The preferred method is inserting a Toric IOL, a lens implant specifically designed to correct astigmatism, to replace your cataract.

If your astigmatism does not fall within the treatable range for an astigmatism-correcting lens implant, Dr. Lalin may choose to also perform Limbal Relaxing Incisions. In this procedure, performed at the same time as cataract surgery, Dr. Lalin will make a precisely positioned, tiny surgical incision. This is a self-sealing technique, so no stitches are needed. After the LRI procedure, the cornea’s shape is rounded, reducing your dependence on glasses after surgery.
