Intraocular Lens Technology

Replacement Lenses for Cataract Surgery Patients

Cataract surgery patients no longer need to rely on glasses to restore their focusing ability once their natural lens has been removed. New advancements in lens technology make it possible to replace the natural lens with implantable lenses. Intraocular lenses (IOLs) take the place of the natural lens that is removed during cataract surgery and aid in focusing ability for improved vision.

We use the three most common types of IOLs to restore vision for cataract sufferers: ReSTOR®,ReZoom™, and Crystalens®.


Implantable Contact Lens (ICL), an Alternative to LASIK

The Visian ICL™ is a phakic intraocular lens (IOL) used in refractive surgery for correcting myopia. Unlike implants that are used to replace the eye’s natural lens after cataract surgery, the Visian ICL™ is placed between the iris and the natural lens. The phakic IOL supplements the natural lens like a prescription contact lens, and is sometimes called an implantable contact lens.


The Visian ICL™ provides us with an important alternative for treating myopia in patients who may not be good candidates for LASIK. Patients from all over Ohio visit us to learn about this procedure as well as other refractive alternatives.
