Premium Lens Options

Premium Lens Implants in Orange County

Premium lens implants are Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) that are implanted during cataract surgery to replace the cloudy cataract lens. Premium lenses can simultaneously correct astigmatism or presbyopia (the need for reading glasses), greatly reducing your need for glasses after surgery.

Our eye surgeons have a combined total of over 100 years of experience with nearly 50,000 lens implants of almost every type ever made. Harvard Eye Associates’ surgeons were the first in the world to use soft, folding lens implants for small incision cataract surgery in the 1980s and continue to break new ground being among the first surgeons in the country to be authorized to use the lenses described below.

At Harvard Eye Associates, we offer the following premium lens options and will help you determine the right option for your unique eyes*:

  • Multifocal “bifocal” IOL for distance and near vision. In a small percentage of patients, glasses may be necessary to fine tune the vision.
  • Toric IOL to reduce astigmatism. Reading glasses or bifocals may be needed to perform close-up tasks.
  • Accommodating IOL for good vision at all distances. This implant has a hinged shape to adjust its position within the eye using the eyes’ own muscles.

Over the years we have conducted numerous clinical research studies on new implant technologies, and we continue to perform studies on existing and upcoming technologies. Our doctors have authored dozens of scientific publications, serve on scientific advisory boards for a number of healthcare technology companies and are reviewers for major vision science journals.
