Lens Implants Vision Correction Austin TX
Why does our eyesight get worse as we age?
As we age, beginning around the age of 40, most people experience a change in vision that requires them to wear reading glasses for near vision. The natural lens of the eye begins to lose its flexibility, reducing the eyes ability to change its range of focus from near…to intermediate…to distance, and then back again. This condition is known as “presbyopia“. Eventually, even bifocal or trifocal glasses will be necessary to achieve one’s best vision.
How can PHASER improve my eyesight?
Now, with the technology of PHASER (Phaco Assisted Surgical Extraction and Replacement of the lens), also called refractive lensectomy, patients may once again have clear distance, intermediate, and near vision without glasses or contact lenses! PHASER is a non-laser procedure that uses the technique of replacing the eyes natural lens with a lens implant specially designed and calibrated to restore all ranges of vision. This new lens is inserted through a tiny self-healing incision and is not visible to the naked eye. Unlike the eyes natural lens, the implant does not deteriorate over time.
What kind of results can I expect?
For the proper candidate, PHASER lens vision correction can correct both “Mother Nature” and “Father Time” vision problems, as well as correct extreme vision problems not treatable with LASIK. Exciting new technology with intraocular lenses (IOL) implants can now give clients an even wider range of vision correction possibilities, such as monofocal vision or multifocal vision (using Tecnis, ReStor, ReZoom, etc. lenses). Your decision to have vision correction surgery should be made carefully, taking into consideration your visual requirements (occupation, lifestyle, hobbies, etc.) and the recommendations of your surgeon. At Eyes Of Texas Laser Center, our surgeon meets one-on-one with every client. During a Free Screening, he will demonstrate your vision options and discuss in detail which customized vision correction procedure will help you achieve your best visual outcome.
