Dallas & Fort Worth, Texas
It used to be that men and women growing old had to accept that their vision would be severely limited. Limited vision ultimately limited their lives. They would have more difficulty driving than they used to, and anything from playing a game to reading a grandchild a story to ordering food had to be preceded by a hunt for oft-misplaced reading glasses.
But no more. Now as a result of advanced intraocular lenses (IOLs), you can continue living life to the fullest, unhindered by diminished eyesight. To maintain vision as youthful as your spirit, schedule a lifestyle lenses consultation at the Carter Eye Center in Dallas, Texas.
What Are Lifestyle Lenses?
"Lifestyle lenses" describes advanced intraocular lenses that don't force you to accept dramatically limited vision that results from presbyopia or the use of traditional monofocal lenses during cataract surgery. These lenses, when used to replace your natural lens, can give you vision comparable to what you had when you were young.
You will have good distance and close vision, and, in many cases, a full range of clear vision. You will be able to drive. You will be able to enjoy a good book at night. You will be able to go snorkeling and see all the magnificent details of the reef. Wherever the rest of your life takes you, you will be able to go there with clear vision.
Lifestyle Lens Options
At the Carter Eye Center in Dallas, Texas, we offer clear lens exchange for people with presbyopia and cataracts. And we offer several different advanced IOLs that have unique advantages.
ReZoom lenses are multifocal IOLs that use a series of vision zones to give you good distance vision and near vision at all light conditions. Most people who use ReZoom lenses rarely or never need glasses.
ReSTOR lenses are also multifocal IOLs, but they do not have the same distinct vision zones. Instead, they use a series of finely stepped zones to give good vision at all distances. An improved version of this lens recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gives users better vision than ever before, including better vision for night driving and good intermediate vision.
Crystalens are the only accommodating IOLs. That means that the lens can change shape in a way similar to your natural lens, which allows you to focus on objects at any distance, giving you a clear range of vision at all distances.
Which Lifestyle Lens Is Right for You?
The only way to know which lens is right for you is to have a detailed discussion with an ophthalmologist about the kinds of activities you enjoy now and plan to enjoy in the future. After hearing what kinds of vision you use on a daily basis, we can recommend a lens that fits your lifestyle today, tomorrow, and for the rest of your life.
