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 a laser 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 light, foreign bodies, and any intrusive objects that may harm your eye as it heals.

Basic Lens Implants vs. Premium Lens Implants

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 premium lens 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 a correction for your distance vision but will not address any of your other eye problems, meaning that you may still have to wear corrective glasses even after the procedure.

Instead of settling for a “basic” lens implant, many of our patients choose to have one of our three 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.

Accommodating IOLs

An accommodating IOL is flexible and responds to your eye’s muscle movements — this IOL will move slightly forward when you’re looking at nearby objects. Having this function increases your eye’s focusing power to provide you with a clearer image when trying to see close objects. Choosing an accommodating IOL will also decrease your chance of experiencing blurred distance vision and glare after surgery.

Multifocal IOLs

Once you undergo cataract surgery with a multifocal IOL, it’s likely that you’ll no longer have to wear reading glasses, which is quite a common necessity as we age. This lens has special magnification added to certain areas of the implant in order to help you see objects clearly both near and far, hence the “multi” in multifocal.

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 PanOptix® Trifocal IOL has been clinically shown to deliver near, intermediate, and distance vision, all while reducing the need to wear glasses after surgery.

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 reshape the curvature of the eye, correcting your astigmatism and eliminating your need for eyeglasses and contact lenses.
