Fortunately, in most cases the cataract is removable and vision can be restored with an intraocular lens ("IOL")*.
Home A premium intraocular lens (IOL) is a new type of IOL used in cataract patients that enables the patients to view both far distance and near distance objects without using glasses.
When a cataract develops, the lens loses its clarity.
Light rays cannot focus clearly, and the image you see is blurry.
Alternatively, you can choose to have an IOL implanted in one eye to improve your distance vision and one implanted in the other eye to improve your near vision. Advantages • The cost of standard monofocal lenses is fully covered by Medicare and private insurance.
• People with monofocal IOLs typically wear glasses for driving, especially at night or in unfamiliar territory.
