Vision, are pleased to bring the first FDA approved tri-focal lifestyle lens implant to West Michigan and the lakeshore.

The Alcon's PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is "The newest generation of lifestyle lenses used during cataract surgery to allow an extended range of near and far vision, reducing the need for glasses after surgery.", states Dr. Thomas Cowden, ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon at Grand Rapids Ophthalmology. "Studies show previous issues such as glare and the need for glasses for small print have improved significantly."

"Alcon's PanOptix® Trifocal IOL delivers an exceptional combination of near, intermediate and distance vision without the need for glasses.", says Dr. John Oltean, ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon at Shoreline Vision. "This lifestyle lens brings the option of being glasses-free even closer to reality for those patients that qualify."

Grand Rapids Ophthalmology and Shoreline Vision doctors are currently accepting new cataract patients at most of their convenient West Michigan locations. Visit seeitclear.com or shorelinevision.com for locations.
