Considering cataract surgery at Brooks Eye Associates? One of our experienced surgeons will design a customized treatment plan based on your overall health and vision goals.

How Does Cataract Surgery Work?

During cataract surgery, the clouded natural lens that decreases the quality of your vision is removed from your eye and replaced by a clear, artificial lens, known as an intraocular lens (IOL). Cataract surgery is a relatively quick, outpatient procedure, where you can go home on the same day as your surgery.

The team at Brooks Eye Associates uses ultrasound technology to break up the cloudy lens, and another special tool to extract it. Next, your eye surgeon will insert an intraocular lens just under the cornea in the spot where the natural lens was. At the end, a protective shield is placed over the eye. This shield will protect your eye from foreign bodies and any intrusive objects that may harm your eye as it heals.

Basic Lens Implants vs. Advanced Technology Lenses

If you’ve decided to pursue cataract surgery, it’s important that you understand all your intraocular lens (IOL) implant options. We offer multiple types of Advanced Technology Lenses implant options, each designed to provide additional benefits to our patients.

Many insurances and Medicare will cover your cataract surgery; however, this often will only include a “basic” lens implant. These lenses will provide correction for the cataract but will not address any of your other vision problems, meaning that you may still have to wear corrective glasses for all ranges of vision even after the procedure.

Instead of settling for a “basic” lens implant, many of our patients choose to have one of our advanced technology lenses implanted instead. These lenses can correct multiple aspects of your vision, so much so that many of our patients have better vision after cataract surgery than ever before.

Advanced Technology Lenses

At Brooks Eye Associates in Plano, TX, we offer you a choice of advanced technology lenses.

During your cataract surgery consultation, your eye surgeon will discuss which lens implant option is best for your vision needs. For example, if you have astigmatism, toric lenses can help correct this problem, reducing your dependence on glasses and contact lenses.

Speaking with our cataract surgeon about your goals, hobbies, and activities can help us provide you with the best lens recommendation to fit both your lifestyle as well as the physiology of your eye.

Trifocal IOLs

Dr. Brooks was one of the first in the Plano area to improve patients’ vision using the AcrySof ® IQ PanOptix ® Trifocal IOL. As the only trifocal lens approved by the FDA, the AcrySof ® IQ PanOptix ® Trifocal IOL has been clinically shown to deliver near, intermediate, and distance vision, reducing the need to wear glasses after surgery.

Extended Depth-of-Focus IOLs

Once you undergo cataract surgery with an EDOF IOL, it’s likely that you’ll reduce your dependence on reading glasses, which is a common necessity as we age. This lens elongates the depth of focus around a single point, which gives you a broader range of focus than a monofocal or Basic lens.

Toric IOLs
Toric lenses can help correct a variety of refractive errors that cause blurry or distorted vision. Not only will your clouded lens be removed, but these IOLs will help correct your astigmatism to reduce your dependence on eye classes and/or contact lenses.
