By age 40, you have certainly seen a lot … but you still have a lot of life to live! Most of us begin experiencing vision loss up close. Decreased flexibility of the lens in an aging eye is referred to as “presbyopia," and almost everyone will be affected by this condition at some point. As we age, we are also more susceptible to cataract, which is cloudiness of the natural lens that helps focus light in the eye. Cataracts can cloud or blur our vision or create glare and sensitivity to light.
Vision loss due to cataract or presbyopia can be restored with intraocular lenses (IOL). Intraocular lenses are implanted through a tiny incision in the eye and improve vision after cataract surgery. Some specialty intraocular lenses can decrease the need for reading glasses or bifocals in patients with cataract and/or presbyopia. These specialty lenses give patients their best opportunity to be glasses free for as many activities as possible.
There are several types of intraocular lenses. Dr. Reinke will make his recommendation based on several factors discussed during your consultation.
