Intraocular (IOL)

Intraocular lens is a device that is implanted in your eye during cataract surgery. It replaces the eye’s natural lens after it has been removed during surgery. There are different types of IOLs and they each offer various advantages and disadvantages. The type of IOL that is best for you will depend on the health of your vision before the development of cataracts and your unique needs and lifestyle.

Basic Cataract Surgery

With the standard implants (the mono-focal lens mentioned above), the cloudy cataract is removed and is replaced with a clear lens. The goal with this lens is clearer vision; however, because it only corrects at one distance, expect to wear glasses full time with this option.

Peace of Mind Cataract Surgery

The Peace of Mind option provides laser-assisted cataract surgery. The cataract will be removed with a laser instead of manually, by hand. The laser technique is gentler on the eye and it can lower the risk of cataract surgery. This option can be combined with any of the other options-Standard, Precision, or Forever Young. You should still expect to wear glasses full time with this option.

Precision Cataract Surgery

With the Precision option, the surgeon can correct your vision during cataract surgery to give you precise distance or near vision depending on what is important to you. This is done by correcting your prescription at one aim and correcting your astigmatism. You will still need to wear glasses some of the time with this option.

Forever Young Cataract Surgery

The Forever Young option expands your range of clear vision giving you a continuous range of vision from distance to mid-range and near giving patients functional vision. With this option, you may still need to wear glasses for some close work.

Light Adjustable Lens

The LAL is the first and only FDA-approved intraocular lens implant (IOL) that can be adjusted after cataract surgery, allowing surgeons to partner with their patients and achieve optimized results for every unique eye. After surgery, the surgeon administers an office-based UV light treatment that adjusts the prescription of the IOL while it is in the patient’s eye, then uses a final exposure treatment to preserve the lens power.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does cataract surgery take?

The entire process takes about 2.5 hours, with the procedure itself typically lasting less than 20 minutes

What is the success rate of cataract surgery?

Cataract surgery has favorable outcomes at approximately 98%

What will my vision be like after cataract surgery?

It's normal to experience blurred vision for at least the first day or two after surgery. Your vision should gradually improve over several weeks. Factors affecting recovery include age, cataract density, general health, and the type of lens implanted​

Can cataract surgery eliminate the need for glasses?

Yes, cataract surgery can potentially eliminate the need for glasses, depending on the type of intraocular lens (IOL) implanted during the procedure. Multifocal lenses, for instance, are designed to improve vision at different distances, both near and far, which can significantly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses. However, the specific outcome varies based on individual factors such as the overall health of the eye, the type of lens chosen, and the patient's vision needs.

How long does it take to recover from cataract surgery?

Recovery from cataract surgery is typically quick. Most patients can return to work within 1-3 days of the surgery. However, it may take several weeks (typically 3-6 weeks) for vision to fully stabilize. During this period, some temporary blurriness and adjustment issues like anisometropia (vision imbalance) may occur, especially if surgery is done in only one eye.

How much does cataract surgery cost?

The average cost of cataract surgery is between $3,500 and $7,000 per eye for those without insurance. Medicare and private insurance often cover all or part of the costs, potentially reducing out-of-pocket expenses by 80% or more​

Is cataracts treatable without surgery?

Cataracts are generally not treatable without surgery, which is the only effective way to remove cataracts. However, in the early stages of cataract development, some symptoms may be managed with changes in eyeglass prescriptions, improved lighting, or other visual aids. These measures can help alleviate the impact of cataracts on vision temporarily. However, as cataracts progress, surgery becomes the standard and most successful treatment.
