What do you need to know about
Clear Vision with
Do you or someone you know have cataracts? New flexible and injectable intraocular lenses have revolutionized the science of vision correction at cataract surgery. These new microscopic lenses, miniature miracles no bigger than the width of a pencil, can be permanently implanted inside the eye through a clear corneal microincision, an opening smaller than 2.0 millimeters.
The Revolutionary, Flexible Intraocular Lens Implant
Because the implanted lens is flexible it can be placed without sutures, without injection anesthetics and without the need for bandaging the eye. The lens does not wear out or require replacement and once removed, the cataract cannot return.
America's baby boomers are aging. With age comes poor vision due to cataracts. It all starts at the age of forty with the need for reading glasses, a condition known as presbyopia. Further clouding of the natural eye lens decreases the contrast of images and blurs vision. For the over 2.9 million Americans who undergo cataract surgery every year, there is hope. Innovative new implantable intraocular lenses (Premium IOLs), replace the aging eye's cataract and can improve vision better than ever before. A microscopic optical device about the size of the end of a pencil, the IOL is permanently implanted inside the eye in a brief, outpatient procedure. According to Robert M. Kershner, M.D., F.A.C.S. the author of a study published in the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, new aspheric toric and multifocal IOLs are a considerable advance over existing technology. These lenses can improve functional vision and the driving safety in patients in whom the lens is implanted. For more information on VISION AND DRIVING SAFETY refer to Dr. Kershner's article published in EyeWORLD magazine.
article in the August 21, 2002 issue of the Journal of the American
Medical Association (JAMA), found that patients
with cataracts who underwent cataract surgery
and intraocular lens implantation had
half the rate of automobile accidents during
the follow-up period compared with cataract patients who did not undergo
At the time of cataract surgery the proper implant can be selected to correct nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.
For many people, these microscopic miracles can improve vision for driving, watching TV, bowling, or playing golf without the continuous need for eyeglasses. Age is not a factor! Almost anyone can enjoy clear vision no matter what their age!

Refractive IntraOcular Lenses Offer Less Dependence on Eyeglasses-Can They Really Deliver as Promised?
The FDA has approved several new Intraocular Lens Implants (IOLs) that specifically improve near and distance vision. Each of these IOLs are different but they all are designed to allow focus for both near and far. Following removal of the natural lens during cataract surgery, implantation with one of these lenses can improve the range of vision previously unobtainable with conventional monfocal lenses. These advanced technology IOLs can even correct astigmatism and improve contrast.
Each of these new, exciting technologies take us one step closer to better, clearer vision and less dependence upon eyeglasses. Find out more...
