PREMIUM CATARACT PROCEDURES

Can I Upgrade my Cataract Procedure to Better Suit my Lifestyle?

Modern technology now allows us not only to restore your vision, but also in many cases can provide you with even better vision than you have had most of your life without the need for glasses. For those who are eligible candidates, you can take this once in a lifetime opportunity to further enhance your eyesight by choosing one of our Premium cataract procedures.

We offer three different levels of cataract surgery that can meet your specific visual needs. These procedures are associated with different types of intraocular lenses, each with its specific benefits and limitations.

Our Premium procedures are designed to eliminate or lessen your dependency on glasses and provide you with a personalized result that will suit your lifestyle.
 

The Basic Cataract Procedure

  • Improves your vision by removing your cataract
  • You may still need glasses to sharpen your distance vision
  • You will most likely need reading glasses

The Basic procedure is the traditional cataract surgery in which your cataract is replaced with an artificial lens known as a MONOFOCAL implant. Monofocal implants come in basic strengths, but do not correct astigmatism or reading vision. Glasses are then essential for reading, and may be needed to correct any residual distance prescription.

For those who are eligible candidates, we can take this once in a lifetime opportunity to further enhance your eyesight by choosing one of our Premium procedures.  These are designed to lessen your dependency on glasses and provide you with personalized vision that will suit your lifestyle.
 

Our Premium Procedure

  • Improves your vision by removing your cataract
  • Corrects your blurry vision caused by ASTIGMATISM
  • Provides you with SHARP DISTANCE VISION without glasses
  • You will most likely need reading glasses 

Astigmatism is blurred vision caused by an oval or irregular-shaped cornea. The Toric implant can be considered a customized implant that contains your individualized prescription, correcting nearsightedness, farsightedness and astigmatism.

If you have a moderate or large degree of astigmatism, our Premium procedure can provide you with vision that is significantly sharper than what is achieved with the Basic procedure. This is typically done by inserting a TORIC implant to correct the blurry vision caused by astigmatism.

Our Premium Plus Procedure

  • Improves your vision by removing your cataract
  • Corrects your blurry vision caused by ASTIGMATISM
  • Provides you with SHARP DISTANCE VISION without glasses
  • Allows you to READ WITHOUT GLASSES
  • For individuals seeking freedom from glasses

Our Premium Plus procedure encompasses both the basic procedure and our premium procedure, plus the insertion of an advanced-technology EXTENDED-RANGE or READING implant to additionally restore your near vision. Providing that your eyes are healthy, these specialized implants can allow for both distance and reading vision without glasses.

We offer several types of reading implants. The TECNIS and RESTOR are multifocal or extended-range implants containing circular reading rings etched into the implant, while the CRYSTALENS and TRULIGN are accommodating implants that flexes to allow you to focus once again.

Both distance and near vision are visualized through reading implants without glasses
