Getting cataract surgery is an excellent option for anyone with cataracts that have begun to affect their quality of life. It’s the only way to treat cataracts by completely removing them.
But to remove a cataract also involves removing the natural lens of the eye. The natural lens is where the cataract forms.
After removing the lens, it gets replaced with an intraocular lens or IOL. An IOL is an artificial, implantable lens designed to replace your natural lens.
Having an IOL allows you to see clearly after having cataracts. If you have cataracts and presbyopia, an IOL can help you see better, as most IOLs are designed to correct presbyopia. Presbyopia is a common condition in adults over the age of 40.
If you have presbyopia and are sick of struggling to see up close and wearing reading glasses, getting a premium IOL is something worth considering. Unlike standard monofocal lenses, premium IOLs provide you with sharper vision and often reduce or eliminate the need for glasses.
