Advanced Technology IOL’s

During cataract surgery the cloudy lens of the eye is removed and replaced with a clear lens implant. Based on your needs and lifestyle, your doctor will discuss what type of lens implant may be best for you. Advanced Technology Intraocular Lenses, or ATIOL’s, offer an exciting array of features, and can reduce or eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses after surgery. Imagine waking up and seeing your alarm clock, reading the paper, and checking your phone, all without needing glasses. The physicians at Eye Consultants of Atlanta are dedicated to staying current with the latest developments in IOL technology. When you visit us for your cataract surgery consultation, we will start by taking the time to examine your eyes before discussing your lifestyle and vision goals to see which lens implant would be the best option for you. We have access to every FDA- approved lens implant, and help you select the modern implant that’s best for you. The array of ATIOL’s is always evolving, and there are too many to mention here as the list frequently changes . Modern lenses require a thorough eye analysis prior to surgery, and aren’t a perfect fit for all patients. ATIOL designs vary, and one’s eye anatomy may preclude the use of a certain design. Most people have heard of poor outcomes with both traditional and modern cataract surgery, and fortunately this outcome is exceedingly rare in our hands. Your ECA doctor will guide you through this complex and rewarding process and ensure you’re at ease during the entire time– before, during, and after.
