Lens Implant Options
Make the Right Lens Implant Choice in Cataract Surgery
In the past, there were not many options for Intraocular lens implants (IOLs). Advances in lens implant technology allow patients to choose IOLs that correct conditions such as astigmatism and presbyopia (the need for reading glasses). Cleveland Clinic Sugarbush Eye and Laser Centre is proud to offer a wide range of lens implant options.
Toric IOLs are perfect for patients suffering from cataracts and astigmatism. Astigmatism results from a cornea that has a cylindrical (football) shape rather than round (basketball) shape. The Toric IOL offsets the shape of the cornea with astigmatism to provide clear vision.

Multifocal IOLs are perfect for patients who wish to reduce their dependence on reading glasses. This IOL has multiple focusing points, which provides distance, near and intermediate vision without glasses.
Accommodating IOLs are designed to work with the muscles of the eye to focus at whatever distance is needed. These IOLs provide sharp vision for multiple distances.
The staff at Cleveland Clinic Sugarbush Eye and Laser Centre will counsel each patient about the best IOL option based on your lifestyle, medical history, and overall eye health. Each patient will undergo a comprehensive eye examination in order to determine the best IOL option. Please take a look around our website to find out more about cataracts.
