Are you or a loved one worried about not seeing well when driving, especially at night? Are you having trouble reading and changing your glasses just doesn’t seem to help? Cataracts can be a source of frustration for sufferers, and rob them of their independence.
However, at Envision Eye & Laser Center in Bowie, MD (also serving the greater Washington, DC area), you don’t have to put up with vision disabling cataracts. You can again enjoy golfing, tennis, driving and needlepoint. Now is the time to restore your quality of life by having advanced cataract surgery combined with new technology lens implants! You can reduce your dependence on glasses by choosing to have either multifocal or toric intra-ocular lens implants.
Multifocal Lenses: Often regarded as one of the triumphs of advanced cataract technologies, multifocal lenses (otherwise known as multifocal IOL) are perfect for those patients who suffer from degenerative eyesight as a result of the aging process. Thanks to its unique composition, multifocal lenses allow you to look at objects and see them all clearly, whether they’re far away, up close or in your intermediate vision.
The results are akin to having your eyesight be transformed from a blurry painting into a crystal-clear digital photograph.
Toric Lenses: Astigmatism affects approximately 20 percent of patients who need cataract surgery. The cornea or the lens in patients with astigmatism irregularly shaped similar to a football rather than the ideal round shape like a baseball. Until recently, even after cataract surgery, people with astigmatism still needed glasses. If you have cataracts and astigmatism, you can now enjoy a life with less dependence on glasses. Toric intra-ocular lenses have made it possible for people with cataracts and astigmatism to enjoy blurry-free vision.
Patients with cataracts now have a once in a lifetime opportunity to remove the cataracts and replace the cloudy lens with a clear lens that also can allow them to see better at all distances or reduce astigmatism. If you’re interested in this option, you’ll need to meet with Dr. Bovelle for several consultations regarding your cataracts.
