Can Lens Replacement Correct Refractive Errors?

Lens Replacement Correct Refractive ErrorsReplacement of the eye’s natural lens is the only way to treat cataracts. However, benefits offered by artificial lenses are not limited to this specific function. In fact, the premium lens implants offered by Frisco eye surgeon Dr. Dain Brooks are specially designed to address refractive errors such as astigmatism, hyperopia, and myopia. During your cataract surgery consultation, Dr. Brooks can discuss these benefits and help you choose the artificial lens best suited to meet your needs.

To schedule your cataract surgery consultation at our Dallas, Texas office, please call (972) 736-9347 today.

Premium lens implants can be used to correct refractive errors, but are not typically the first recommendation for this sole purpose. If you are struggling with a refractive error and looking for the most effective way to find freedom from prescription eyewear, Dr. Brooks may suggest laser vision correction instead of lens replacement. Options such as PRK can be used to reshape the cornea and permanently correct vision without replacing the eyes lens. The best way to learn which option is ideal for your vision is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Brooks.

If you are considering refractive error correction surgery in Frisco, Plano, Dallas, or surrounding areas of Texas, please contact Brooks Eye Associates today to schedule your initial consultation.
