Redding Cataract Surgeon Highlights Benefits of Premium Intraocular Lens Options
Dr. Michael Sumsion uses premium intraocular lenses to further enhance his patients’ vision after cataract surgery, permitting benefits such as multifocal vision and more.
Redding, CA – When a person undergoes cataract surgery, the eye’s natural lens is removed and replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL) to help restore vision. The traditional lens replacement option is called a monofocal IOL, which can enhance the patient’s ability to see objects at long range more clearly. In addition to standard monofocal IOLs, Dr. Michael Sumsion offers multiple premium lens implant options at his Redding eye care practice that can further enhance his patients’ vision.
At Riverside EyeCare, patients can choose between several types of premium IOLs, each with distinct advantages. In a recent blog post titled, “Cataract Surgery: Premium IOLs Vs. Monofocal Lenses,” Dr. Sumsion highlights the different ways each of these options can improve the vision of his cataract surgery patients. The two most common premium lenses Dr. Sumsion uses at his practice to restore vision after cataract surgery are TECNIS® Multifocal IOLs and TECNIS® Toric IOLs.
The TECNIS® Multifocal IOL can enhance a person’s ability to see and read with ease in dim lighting, states the Redding cataract surgeon. Furthermore, this innovate lens can optimize clarity of eyesight at a spectrum of distances, often restoring a full range of vision and greatly reducing one’s dependence on glasses. For patients who have pre-existing astigmatism, however, Dr. Sumsion notes that the TECNIS® Toric IOL can be an excellent option. In addition to correcting high degrees of astigmatism, the TECNIS® Toric lens has the capability to significantly improve long-distance vision.
Dr. Sumsion also offers Crystalens® IOLs, another premium lens option. He states that Crystalens® “can aid your vision after cataract surgery by [its] ability to move naturally with your ocular muscles as focal points change.”
Following cataract surgery, Dr. Sumsion states patients often experience dramatically clearer vision the day after their procedure. As the eyes continue to heal, he adds, the vision of the patient should continue to improve. To help each patient decide which type of IOL is best for their individual circumstances, Dr. Sumsion conducts one-on-one consultations with his patients. Monofocal lenses or one of Riverside EyeCare’s premium IOLs will be recommended depending upon each patient’s unique vision needs.
