RxSight Light-Adjustable Lens
The light-adjustable lens is the only lens that allows you to customize your vision after the procedure. We use a revolutionary lens implant that can be adjusted or fine-tuned to your liking in the weeks following surgery. This allows us to correct your astigmatism after the eye has healed, and has the highest rate of 20/20 vision following surgery! More Information On Light-Adjustable Lens
Alcon PanOptix IOL
With skilled selection and placement by an experienced surgeon, the PanOptix IOL corrects distance, intermediate (computer), and near vision. It also corrects mild-moderate degrees of astigmatism. Patients may in some cases require mild readers for very tiny print, particularly in dim lighting conditions. Nighttime glare and halos are a possibility, but in most cases do not impact your ability to drive at night. A large-scale study of the PanOptix IOL found that 99.8% of patients said they would choose the PanOptix IOL if they had to make the decision again.
Alcon Vivity IOL
With skilled selection and placement by an experienced surgeon, this IOL will correct your distance vision, as well as the intermediate zone (computer distance). It also corrects mild-moderate degrees of astigmatism. It has a lower rate of nighttime glare and halos compared to the PanOptix IOL, but would still require reading glasses for fine print in most cases.
With skilled selection and placement by an experienced surgeon, a Toric IOL more optimally corrects either distance, intermediate (computer), OR near vision in patients with astigmatism in comparison to a standard monofocal IOL. By correcting astigmatism with the IOL, you may reduce your dependence on glasses for primarily one are of focus, but will continue to need glasses for the other areas of focus.
What Our Patients Say About Cataract Surgery
“Before my cataract surgery, I was very nervous. Dr. Vrabec and his team made me feel very relaxed and comfortable. Dr. Vrabec’s reassuring manner and clear explanation of the procedure put me at ease. The procedure for my eyes has had the most wonderful results. Everything has become bright and clear, even on the darkest and dreariest of days. I see things in nature I have not noticed in a long time. The color of the leaves, the dew on the branches, even the sunsets look more intense with their spectacular light show of colors. I can now drive without any problem of the oncoming light. I felt like I was just a number with my previous ophthalmologist, but Dr. Vrabec made me feel like I am important to him as a patient.”
DH – Surgery Patient
“Totally Amazing & Unbelievable” is how I felt the day after eye surgery, especially when the office measured my eye sight as 20/20. I could hardly wait to schedule surgery for my other eye. No more glasses or contacts. I was able to work on my computer the same day, right after surgery. My vision is now perfect, colors more vivid. Dr Vrabec was the second eye surgeon that I visited regarding my cataracts. He removed all my concerns by explaining throughly and clearly each process. We discussed my options and I opted for the PanOptix Lens implant. The surgery was totally without discomfort during or after surgery. Dr. Vrabec is an excellent eye surgeon with a compassionate demeanor. His personal follow up is reflective of the pride he takes in helping his patients improve their vision.”
