Vision Correction Implants Often Used for Cataract Surgery
For those seeking a more permanent solution, vision correction implants are available. Vision correction implants, also called Intraocular Lens Implants, involve inserting a lens inside your eye through surgery. A vision correction implant replaces your natural lens. These implants are often used during cataract surgery, although they are also used for refractive lens exchange, which replaces your eye’s clear lens with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) to achieve sharper focus.
There are a variety of vision correction implants, including multifocal and toric (for astigmatism). Premium lenses are also available and well-suited for many conditions. Once placed, vision correction implants should last you for the rest of your life.
