A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens of your eye. For people who have cataracts, seeing through cloudy lenses is a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged-up window.
Below are some of the Lens options for Cataract Surgery, which you may need to discuss with Dr. Gupta
The AcrySof® IQ Family of Lenses are artificial lenses implanted in the eye of adult patients following cataract surgery. The AcrySof® IQ IOLs are designed to allow for clear distance vision. However, you will likely still need glasses for reading and for distance vision particularly ifyou already have astigmatism. The AcrySof® IQ Toric IOLs are designed to correct pre-existing corneal astigmatism, which is the inability of the eye to focus clearly at any distance because of difference curvatures on the cornea, and provide distance vision.
The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL is a type of IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL provides clear distance vision (e.g., for watching children playing in the backyard). In addition, the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL allows for better intermediate (working on a computer, applying makeup or shaving) and some near (reading, knitting) vision compared to what a monofocal IOL would provide.
