How to choose the best IOL option for you
Premium IOLs are a much more advanced and effective upgrade over the visual aids of the past, basic monofocal IOLs, which only provided improved optical clarity at a particular distance. Yet one of the advantages of our modern line of premium intraocular lenses is that they provide our patients with enhanced continuous vision, allowing clarity and improved eyesight across a range of distances, from near to far.
Your selection will be informed by many variables, including eye health, visual conditions, and your daily needs. The following are some of the IOLs we offer at Kirk Eye Center:
TECNIS Multifocal IOLs are an FDA-approved option to improve vision in various conditions, helping you see better across a range of environments and increasing visual acuity at night. These IOLs are great for night driving and for changes with constantly changing prescriptions. The TECNIS Multifocal is also an ideal IOL for patients struggling to read or see nearby objects.
TECNIS Eyhance™ Toric II
TECNIS Eyhance Toric II IOLs utilize the advanced TECNIS SIMPLICITY® delivery system to give our patients an extended depth of focus. How? Through its unique shape (hence the term toric, or curved), it offers a game-changing solution for patients who desire clear distance vision as well as patients with astigmatism. In addition, the improved image contrast in low or dim-light conditions helps patients excel at daily tasks, hobbies, or enjoying a night out.
TECNIS Symfony is an IOL that’s designed to resolve two ocular issues. It provides simultaneous solutions for two sight-obscuring, age-related ocular conditions: the farsightedness associated with presbyopia and the blurry, cloudy vision caused by cataracts clouding the eye’s natural lens.
TECNIS Synergy IOLs transcend the capabilities of the already-advanced trifocals to give you enhanced capabilities in various conditions. For example, they utilize InteliLight™ technology to yield excellent eyesight and exceptional contrast between light and dark conditions, giving you fantastic night vision. Patients also benefit from continuous peripheral vision and reduced visual issues such as scatter, glare, and halos.
