What Are Options for Lenses For Cataract Surgery?
During your cataracts surgery, the clouded lens that covers the eye will be permanently removed and replaced with another lens. This surgery is the most effective way of treating cataracts, and has a high success rate. However, this does mean you will only have one chance to choose the best lenses for cataract surgery. Some options include:
- Toric lenses, which can help people with astigmatism. Astigmatism is a condition in which the cornea or lens of the eye is misshapen.
- Multi-focal lenses, which may also be known as presbyopia-correcting lenses. These lenses can help correct both nearsightedness and farsightedness, addressing both of these at the same time so you don't have to worry about wearing glasses.
- Monofocal lenses, which give you the option of correcting your vision for nearsightedness or farsightedness. These are a good option for those that have a preference for the specific type of vision problem they want to correct.
