And most are thrilled with their vision after cataract surgery!
PanOptix® Trifocal Lens
Dr. Ighani is among a handful of distinguished eye surgeons to offer the new PanOptix Lens. This amazing advancement is the first and only trifocal lens of its kind available in the U.S.
PanOptix Trifocal is designed to deliver focusing power at near, mid and far distances, correcting astigmatism and eliminating or reducing the need for glasses, bifocals, trifocals and even readers! It is designed to work well in daylight, bright light, dim and low light. So whether you are working at the computer, reading a menu, watching television or driving at night, it’s all made easier and more enjoyable with clear, crisp vision.
This is the first lens of its kind that corrects astigmatism and provides an extended depth-of-focus, which helps improve sharpness at near, intermediate and far distances. When it first came out, the Tecnis Symfony lens was groundbreaking because previously, patients who had both presbyopia (over-40 reading vision) and astigmatism were unable to have a single lens that would address all their vision needs. A major advantage over many other lenses is Symfony’s increased depth of focus power.
Before the Symfony lens, surgeons could correct patients’ vision with a multifocal lens and/or an LRI or Toric lens to correct their astigmatism and/or presbyopia. These options still exist, but Symfony certainly simplifies things!
The Vivity lens has been described as allowing for revitalized vision. What does that mean? It means more clarity in your vision at multiple distances. This new lens offers correction of distance and mid-range vision, with some patients reporting being able to read newspaper print without glasses, although you still may need reading glasses for smaller print and fine detailed work.
Dr. Ighani recommends this lens for those looking to improve their intermediate and near range of vision. This includes activities like working on a computer, reading, watching television and putting on makeup. This lens also comes in a Toric version for patients with higher levels of astigmatism.
