Astigmatism is typically caused by the cornea being shaped more like a football than a basketball. This causes images to focus at different points on the retina, resulting in blurry or double vision. Astigmatism can also be caused by irregularities in the shape of the natural lens inside the eye.
We offer astigmatism correcting lens options, also known as Toric lenses. Until recently, patients with astigmatism had to either have corneal refractive surgery (LASIK, PRK, or Limbal Relaxation Incisions) after lens implant surgery or remain dependent on glasses or contacts. The Toric lens combined with ORA offers patients the best astigmatism correction available.
Presbyopia is a condition most people over the age of 40 experience. This condition results in difficulty seeing up close without the aid of bifocals, trifocals, or reading glasses. This condition is believed to be caused by a hardening of the lens inside the eye, making it difficult for the eye’s muscles to change its focus. Those with this condition find themselves pushing reading materials further away so they can focus.
For those with presbyopia, we offer multifocal lenses. TheReSTOR lens is unique in that it not only works as a multifocal lens, but also has a yellow tint which enhances color and offers advanced UV protection. While monofocal lenses may successfully correct distance vision, they don’t provide efficient near or intermediate vision. With the ReSTOR multifocal lens you can significantly decrease your dependence on glasses, contacts and bifocals.
Monofocal Lens (Standard):
Some patients find that a standard lens is sufficient for their vision needs. If you choose to have standard cataract surgery, your vision will be much clearer, but you may need to wear glasses for reading and other activities.
