Advanced Technology Intraocular Lenses

At the time of cataract surgery, the cloudy lens in your eye is removed and replaced with a clear, artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). Grand Rapids Ophthalmology offers four options for intraocular lenses: traditional IOLs, and three advanced technology IOL implants.

  • Traditional IOLs that improve vision but may require the need for glasses to see well close up and/or at a distance after surgery. Traditional cataract surgery is accepted by most insurance plans.
  • Advanced technology IOL implants can optimize near and distance vision and correct astigmatism. These lens implants reduce your dependency on glasses or bifocals after surgery. The best lens for you depends on many factors, including your lifestyle and specific vision needs. Additional costs are involved, and many patients choose to use Grand Rapids Ophthalmology’s interest-free financing option or pay with cash or credit card.
