Technology



Cataract surgery today is more than just the most common surgical procedure in the world. It's an opportunity to rejuvenate your vision to how it was when you were 19.

Choices. Today there are more choices in lenses to replace your natural lens than ever before. Technology has made available new artificial intraocular lenses that can restore vision for every lifestyle.

Monofocal traditional intraocular lenses can restore distance vision, but they aren’t designed to bring back the balance of youthful eyes. Images may not be as sharp as they could be, and you may be left with the functional vision of a healthy older person, not of a young adult.

Using innovative wavefront lens technology, the TECNIS® Lens can restore your vision to that of a younger person. The TECNIS® Lens can improve functional vision so you can see well, even in low-light situations like driving at night, dining by candlelight or walking in a morning fog.

Toric intraocular premium lenses achieve quality distance vision by reducing or eliminating corneal astigmatism and significantly improving uncorrected distance vision. The latest in a long line of IOL innovations from Alcon, the new AcrySof® IQ Toric lens takes the most trusted platform for precise astigmatism correction and adds the enhanced image quality of an aspheric lens, taking the toric IOL to a whole new level.

Latest Visual Field technology reduces test time for the patient.

Our practice features a unique and powerful eye scanning system called Spectralis, that can help detect eye diseases in their earliest stages and help monitor treatment effectiveness.

 



The bow tie effect represented in the topography axial map below demonstrates corneal astigmatism which can be corrected with the AcrySof® IQ Toric intraocular lens.

If a patient tested with the axial map above, then the examples below simulates visual effects seen with cataracts, Monofocal and the AcrySof® IQ Toric intraocular lens.

The left image simulates vision with cataracts and astigmatism. The middle image simulates vision with a monofocal lens and no correction for astigmatism. The image on the right simulates vision with the AcrySof® IQ Toric intraocular lens.
