WHAT IS AN INTRAOCULAR LENS (IOL)?
Inside of your eye, behind the iris and pupil, there is a clear lens. The lens is responsible for focusing light onto the retina so you can see. When you have cataracts, it means that the lens inside of your eye has become cloudy. This occurs when the proteins that make up most of the lens begin to break down and clump together, causing the lens to opacify.
To correct cataracts, this lens needs to be completely removed. When the lens is removed, it needs to be replaced to restore your vision so you can see properly. This is where intraocular lenses (IOLs) come in.
IOLs are designed to mimic the natural lens. Advanced technology IOL’s hold specific refractive powers, much like your glasses and contact lenses. When implanted into the eye, these IOLs provide focusing power that your natural lens did not have, allowing you to experience clear and sharp vision.

What are Advanced Technology Lenses?
With advanced technology lens implants, Your surgeon can simultaneously correct your cataracts and your glasses prescription, sometimes for both distance and near viewing.
The implants can also be used to correct astigmatism, which is an irregular shape of the cornea that causes blurry vision.
What Are The Advantages of Advanced Technology Lens Implants?
Advanced technology lens implants both replace your cataracts and reduce your need for glasses with one simple procedure. This gives you:
- Greater range of clear vision
- Improved ability to switch quickly from distance viewing to close-up tasks
- Better vision capability in a variety of lighting
