As you get older, the natural lens, located behind the iris in your eye, may gradually begin to get “cloudy” and interfere with light and images getting to your retina. As the lens becomes cloudier, your vision slowly becomes more blurred. Surgery is the only way to remove the cloudy lens and replace it with an intraocular lens to correct vision. Dr. Davies will discuss the different types of IOL's that will work best for you.
Today's lens technology offers optimal natural vision with premium Intraocular Lenses (IOL). In order to determine which lens is best for you, consider your lifestyle. Do you focus more on near or far objects? Is color and contrasts important to you? How often do you drive at night? Make sure you go over these with Dr. Davies to help determine which lens or combination of lenses will work best for you.
