Has a recent cataract diagnosis left you searching for answers? Given that cataracts are the leading cause of blindness in people over 40, you should consider your treatment options right away. At Northeast Ohio Eye Surgeons, we offer cataract patients different types of cataract packages that give different vision outcomes.
Our patients have the chance to choose between basic cataract surgery, custom cataract laser surgery, and lifestyle cataract surgery. If you’re tired of needing glasses for the most routine activity, you should consider lifestyle cataract surgery. With a trifocal lens called the Panoptix Lens, you’ll be able to see a broad range of vision clearly. Learn more about the Panoptix trifocal lens and schedule an appointment to see if it’s right for you.
What Is the Panoptix Lens
The Panoptix lens is an intraocular lens or IOL that your surgeon uses to replace your natural lens. When cataracts become too large and interfere with your vision, the Panoptix lens will help you in ways that glasses or contacts cannot. As mentioned before, Panoptix lenses are trifocal, allowing you to see three different ranges of vision. Basic IOLs are typically monofocal, meaning it doesn’t allow you to see varying distances clearly.
How does the PanOptix Lens Work?
The PanOptix cataract lens allows you to see three ranges of vision—far, immediate, and near. With improved ranges of vision, you’ll be able to put on make-up, shave, or type on a computer without wearing glasses.
The trifocal lens bends light as your natural lens would, focusing the light on your retina. With cataracts, this light has difficulty completely focusing on the retina, causing your vision problems.
What Can the PanOptix Lens Correct?
Although the PanOptix lens is mainly used to treat cataracts, it can also help with other vision problems. People with cataracts who also have astigmatism can get both taken care of with the PanOptix lens. This helps them be less reliant on glasses or contacts. The PanOptix lens can also help mitigate presbyopia, a condition that affects your near vision.
What Makes Trifocal Lenses Different From Other Premium Cataract Lenses
You may be wondering how a trifocal lens is different from a premium lens. Trifocal lenses allow you to see three separate ranges of vision clearly. A premium lens, which is multifocal, allows you to see near and distant objects more clearly. Because trifocal lenses improve your intermediate vision, patients prefer it to a premium lens. The ability to do simple activities such as working on a computer makes a big difference.
