At the practice of Dr. David Aizuss, patients in West Hills, CA have access to a wide range of services for their eye and vision health. Conditions that can impact the vision, such as cataracts, may require a patient to undergo a surgical procedure to restore the clarity and acuity of their vision. Cataracts are known to cause fogging and blurring of one’s vision. To treat cataracts, patients should undergo a surgical procedure during which an intraocular lens, or IOL, is placed after the removal of the natural, impacted lens. Premium lenses, sometimes referred to as premium IOLs, may be a consideration for many patients.
Why would I consider a premium IOL?
Premium IOLs are available today to help patients avoid the need for thick eyeglasses or specialized contact lenses as a result of being unable to replace the natural lenses. Premium IOLs are used to help restore vision and do so in a way that addresses common eye concerns that may have developed. For example, patients who have an astigmatism will want to consider the placement of a toric IOL. This type of lens is made to work with the shape of the eye to correct the astigmatism while ensuring clearer vision.
What types of lenses are available?
There are many premium IOLs available for patients at the practice of Dr. David Aizuss. They include:
- Aspheric IOLs
- Toric IOLs
- Extended depth of focus IOLs
- Multifocal IOLs
What if both of my eyes are different?
Some patients may experience a concern in one eye but not the other. In situations such as this, patients may need to use a different premium IOL for each eye. For example, one eye might need a toric IOL while another may need a standard IOL. Some patients may need a toric multifocal or a toric extended depth of focus IOL. This is not uncommon and can be discussed with the eye physician.
