Unlike dentures or hearing aids, your lens implant will remain with you the rest of your life, therefore, choosing the correct implant is one of the most important decisions you can make. It is very important to take time to learn the advantages of the different lens implants available and decide what will work best for your particular lifestyle. Southern Eye Center offers a number of choices so you can be assured of getting exactly what you want.
The standard lens implant that has been around since the 1970s is a single focus lens – meaning it can correct your vision at a single distance. While this is an advantage over seeing through a cloudy cataract, it is likely you will depend on bifocals for intermediate and near vision.
For patients on a limited budget, a Limbal Relaxing Incision (LRI) may be performed to reduce astigmatism and improve vision at a small additional fee.
