Are you considering cataract surgery? Cataract surgery involves removing your eye’s natural lens and replacing it with a clear, artificial one. This is referred to as an intraocular lens or IOL.
It’s important to know that not all IOLs are the same. The lens implanted when you have cataract surgery can impact your vision in a big way. Keep reading to find out how the PanOptix trifocal IOL can give you back your clear vision!
What Is the PanOptix Trifocal IOL?
The PanOptix trifocal IOL is a first in class true trifocal lens, and the only IOL that delivers clear vision at all three ranges of vision. We are excited to offer at Fichte Endl & Elmer Eyecare.
It can improve your vision: up-close, intermediate, and far away. Since it has the potential to transform your vision, it is considered a premium lens.
This FDA-approved lens contains the latest ocular technology. It works by utilizing a unique diffractive structure, which allows it to focus on multiple points.
When you have a refractive error, the eye cannot focus light properly. The PanOptix trifocal IOL corrects this error, providing you with clear vision.
What Makes the PanOptix Trifocal IOL Different?
The PanOptix is the first and only trifocal lens available in the United States. Monofocal lenses are only able to focus at a single distance.
This means that your far vision may be clear, but you may still need glasses when looking at closer objects.
Other premium lenses are only capable of shifting between two points. This can create gaps in your vision, particularly at intermediate and close distances.
With the trifocal lens, your eyes can focus on all three points. The result is clearer vision, wherever you happen to be looking. The newspaper, a text message, the dashboard on your car, and far away like watching a movie or a play.
The PanOptix trifocal IOL does more than replace a lens clouded by a cataract or offer single-distance or even double-distance vision. It dramatically improves your eyesight, whether you’re looking near, far, or anywhere in between.
What Are the Benefits of the PanOptix Trifocal IOL?
With more than 125 million lenses implanted, many people are enjoying the many benefits of the PanOptix lens. At 99 percent, the patient satisfaction rate of this lens is almost perfect. Nearly everyone would select this same lens again.
Because it can transition between all three distances, this premium IOL gives you the ability to reduce your dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Some are even able to get rid of their glasses or contacts completely!
Those who have active lifestyles will find the PanOptix IOL especially advantageous. When running, biking, swimming, or participating in any other physical activity, glasses can get in your way and contact lenses can pop out.
Even if you aren’t super active, you will still appreciate the visual freedom this lens can provide. The benefits don’t end there. The PanOptix trifocal IOL has blue-light filtering built right in.
Not only does this protect your eyes from harmful UV rays, but it also protects against the harsh light emitted by screens.
