Welcome Dr. Brent Deibert, Surgical Retina Specialist, to our Arapahoe location!
IOLs are soft, foldable lenses that are inserted into the eye to replace the natural lens that developed the cataract. These lenses are also viable options for some patients who have not yet developed cataracts but want to reduce or eliminate their need for glasses with a procedure known as Refractive Lens Exchange or RLE. Cataract surgery and Refractive Lens Exchange are identical procedures. The only difference is that with RLE, the lens is still mostly clear. Made of plastic or silicone materials, IOLs come with monofocal, multifocal, extended depth of focus, accommodating options. We also offer a Light Adjustable Lens option, where you can customize your vision after surgery.
See whats included in our intraocular lens packages below and discuss with your surgeon the best option for you.
Our surgeons will help you determine what is best for you based on how you want to prioritize your vision after surgery.
Monofocal IOLs provide a single zone of clear focus and are usually implanted to provide excellent distance vision. Patients with monofocal IOLs will typically require the use of reading glasses for near vision tasks, such as reading or sewing.
Multifocal, extended depth of focus and accommodating IOLs are designed to provide a fuller range of vision with minimal, if any, need for glasses or contact lenses.
The Light Adjustable Lens offers additional customization of your vision after it is implanted. If you’re not sure what distance you will want to prioritize after surgery, this option can allow your surgeon to fine tune your vision until we find what works best for you.
The lens that is right for you will depend on your ocular health, your occupational needs, and your lifestyle. It is important that you consider your options thoroughly, as you only have cataract surgery one time in your life, and the decision you make will affect how you see for the rest of your life.
