Cataracts affect many people as they age. Choosing a premium LifeStyle lens can ensure that you continue living an active life after cataract surgery.

Cataracts are a common condition that many people face, especially as they age. In fact, more than half of all Americans will have cataracts by the time they are 80 years old. This condition can make your vision blurry and keep you from doing the things you love like reading, driving, or playing sports.

You may already know that cataract surgery is the best way to sharpen vision, but did you know that premium lenses could eliminate your need for glasses after surgery? That’s why we use LifeStyle lenses.

What are LifeStyle Lenses?

Cataract surgery is a quick and easy procedure that generally lasts 10 to 15 minutes. During surgery, the doctor removes the clouded lens and implants a new one. You may choose to replace your natural lens with a permanent intraocular lens (IOL) to help improve your vision.

LifeStyle lenses are premium IOLs that are specifically designed for active patients. These lenses come in a variety of types to suit your individual needs:

  • ReSTOR lenses sharpen vision at multiple distances and are ideal for active patients, or those who spend a lot of time using computers or reading. Their unique technology functions like two lenses in one, allowing for near, intermediate, and distance vision correction. After surgery, 80% of patients who choose ReSTOR lenses don’t need glasses.
  • Crystalens is an IOL classified as an accommodating lens, meaning it works with the eye’s natural structures to focus at different distances. It’s best for patients with presbyopia, or normal age-related trouble focusing at short distances. Crystalens is a great option for driving, using a computer, or reading. Most patients will not need glasses or contact lenses after having this lens implanted. In fact, most Crystalens users report clear vision even seven years after the procedure.
  • Tecnis lenses correct vision under all lighting conditions and at all distances. These lenses also offer more visual contrast, allowing patients to see even in low-visibility situations. Once the Tecnis is implanted, nine out of 10 patients find they don’t need glasses or contact lenses.

Cataracts can be a serious condition, but fortunately, they can be treated quickly and effectively with surgery. By choosing the right lens for your eyes, you can vastly improve your vision and get back to the activities you love. At Kleiman Evangelista Eye Centers, you and your doctor can work together to choose a lens based on your lifestyle and eye health.
