Exciting advancements in lens implant technology are making it possible for patients to see better than ever after cataract surgery. Premium lens implants give patients a broader range of focus than standard lens implants, and allow most patients to enjoy excellent distance and near vision without glasses.
The surgeons at Palo Alto Eye Group use the latest technology for each patient's assessment in order to provide the most precise data possible. This ensures optimal vision correction by customizing solutions to suit your specific eye care needs. We are proud to utilize the ORA System on every cataract operation involving a premium intraocular lens. The ORA System will enable your surgeon to take measurements of your eye during your procedure. ORA measurements are taken after the clouded cataract is removed, when the surgeon has a clear view, allowing him to tailor the procedure to your individual eye and refine your visual outcome.
Premium intraocular lenses are generally not covered by medical insurance, so an out of pocket fee usually applies. If you are contemplating cataract surgery, ask your doctor whether you are a good candidate for premium lens implants. Prior to your appointment, please feel free to research these choices below or call our office with any questions.
