Intraocular lens implants (IOLs) provide patients of Dr. Raul Peña with a treatment for cataracts while also improving their focusing ability, many times to a level not experienced even before the development of the cataract. With intraocular lens implants, Dr. Peña’s patients are given the opportunity to restore clarity to vision impaired by cataracts, regain the ability to see at both near and far distances, and truly improve their overall quality of life.
Intraocular lens implants are used to replace the natural lens of the eye when it is clouded by a cataract or has lost its focusing ability due to presbyopia (age-related farsightedness). Traditional monofocal IOLs may be used to replace the lens, but they do not restore the ability to see at all distances, which means that patients must continue to wear glasses or contact lenses. However, multifocal and accommodating lens implants such as the Light Adjustable Lens can provide patients with improved vision at a range of distances.
During your consultation, you and Dr. Peña will discuss your goals for treatment, and you will determine, together, which lens option fits your lifestyle best.
RxSight Light Adjustable Lens
The RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only intraocular lens (IOL) that can be customized after cataract surgery. The Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photosensitive material that can be adjusted in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. This optimization is done by your eye doctor in the weeks following lens implantation through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior vision outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match.
The PanOptix® Lens is the first and only trifocal lens for cataracts in the United States which delivers enhanced quality and a complete range of vision.3 A trifocal lens is an IOL that is specifically engineered to provide vision at every distance, from near through far and can offer benefits beyond a standard cataract lens.
Crystalens ® has hinges on both sides that allow the ciliary muscles to move the lens implants and focus the eye more easily. Dr.Raul Peña’s office is fully equipped with the latest technologies in order to provide the quality intraocular lens implants that his patients deserve. Dr. Peña focuses on personalized service and quality care.
