Introducing the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL
During cataract surgery, your eyes’ clouded natural lens is replaced by an artificial intraocular lens, called an IOL. There are many different types of IOLs, each with different functions and benefits that can make all the difference after cataract treatment.
At Brooks Eye Associates, we’re constantly expanding our selection of IOLs. Our goal is for every patient treated to find a lens that perfectly fits their needs and budget. One of the lenses we’re proud to offer for cataract surgery in Plano is the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL.
Our board-certified ophthalmologist and cataract specialist, Dain B. Brooks, M.D., was one of the first cataract surgeons in Plano to begin providing patients with the PanOptix® Trifocal IOL. This is an example of Dr. Brooks’ commitment to keeping up with the latest technology in the industry, all for the benefit of our patients.
Plano IOL Options: Why Choose the PanOptix® Trifocal?
The PanOptix® Trifocal IOL has been clinically proven to deliver exceptional near, intermediate, and distance vision.
Unlike the PanOptix® Trifocal, not all IOLs provide clear, crisp vision across all distances. Not only does this revolutionary lens provide patients with a significant range of clear vision, but it also does so while significantly reducing the need to wear glasses after Plano cataract surgery.
Astigmatism and Presbyopia Correction
The PanOptix® Trifocal IOL can correct both astigmatism and presbyopia. This means that the lens will both address your cataract and reduce the chances that you will have to wear glasses at the same time.
Astigmatism is when the eye’s cornea is misshapen. This causes blurry vision which can be corrected by eyewear, laser eye surgery, or toric IOLs used during cataract surgery. The PanOptix® Trifocal IOL comes in both spherical and toric designs, meaning that it can be your solution to simultaneous cataract and astigmatism correction.
The PanOptix® Trifocal IOL can also address presbyopia, a common condition in which patients lose focus on up-close objects as they age. Often, those with presbyopia have to wear reading glasses to focus on objects such as smartphones, computers, or books, but the PanOptix® Trifocal is designed to help you see these objects conveniently, without additional eyewear.
The First FDA-Approved Trifocal IOL
Our office prioritizes providing patients with safe and effective eye care solutions. The PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is both.
The PanOptix® Trifocal was already one of the leading presbyopia-correcting IOLs in over 70 countries before it was approved for use in the U.S. Now, it’s the first-ever FDA-approved trifocal lens for cataract surgery. Because it’s met the high standards set by the FDA, you can rest assured that this IOL is a safe choice for your eyes.
Approval was based on a comprehensive study conducted across 12 investigational sites. More than 99 percent of those in the study who chose the PanOptix® Trifocal IOL for their cataract surgery said that they would choose the same lens again.
