IOL Options

Text Resizer

Cataract patients at Oakland Ophthalmic Surgery have several options when it comes to choosing their intraocular lens (IOL) implantation. We know that each patient is unique, and their eye and vision needs will vary. Your doctor will discuss the choices available to help you decide which is the best intraocular lens to meet your needs.

IOL TYPES Monofocal IOL Multifocal IOL Toric Accomodative
Monofocal IOL- For Distance or Near

Toric IOL-This option corrects astigmatism for individuals who wish to reduce their need for glasses for either distance or near.

Symfony/Symfony Toric IOL-This lens creates an extended depth of focus resulting in continuous range of vision, therefore reducing the need for glasses most of the time.

Crystalens/Trulign IOL-This lens reduces the need for glasses most of the time. The lens is designed to flex like your eye’s natural lens, giving you an active range of vision from an arm’s length to distance.

PanOptix-This is a trifocal lens designed to provide you with clear vision for near, intermediate, and far distances without glasses after cataract surgery.
