At Cape Fear Eye Associates, we offer the most advanced options to customize your vision after cataract surgery, based on your individual lifestyle needs.  Based on our findings during your upcoming examination, we will inform you of which lens is the best option for you. 

VISION WITH THE PANOPTIX® LENS - the first and only TRIFOCAL lens available in the United States.

The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide.

There is a chance that you still may need glasses for distance, intermediate, and/or near vision. You will get the full benefit of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL when it is placed in both eyes. Please discuss with your eye doctor whether this is the right IOL for you.

Cataract Surgery with WaveTec Vision (ORA)

Now during the procedure, your surgeon can take measurements of your eye, make any necessary adjustments and refine your visual outcome. ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view, allowing your surgeon to tailor your procedure to your individual eye.
