Cataract patients can now take advantage of the ultimate vision treatment thanks to the FDA approval of the AcrySof IQ PanOptix lens. This first-of-its-kind trifocal lens is proven to significantly reduce the need for glasses post-surgery, improving near, intermediate, and distance vision. 99% of patients treated say they would choose the same lens again.

BOCA RATON, Fla., Sept. 24, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The formation of cataracts in one or both eyes has a considerably

detrimental effect on the quality of life of those affected. Treatment is forever advancing, but sufferers within the USA have not, up until now, been able to take advantage of the revolutionary trifocal lens that's been available in many other countries since 2015. The recent FDA approval was granted following crucial clinical studies that demonstrated a unique combination of near, intermediate, and far vision with 99% patient satisfaction.

Symptoms Of Cataracts And How They're Treated

Cataracts occur when the lens within the eye becomes cloudy, and is a common problem that's often, but not always, related to the aging process. Vision impairing cataracts form over time, causing symptoms such as clouded sight, night blindness, sensitivity to light, fading colors, and the need to change prescription glasses and lenses more frequently. Eyeglasses can help in the early stages, but cataract surgery is the only treatment as the lens degradation progresses. This involves the removal of the damaged lens and replacing it with an intraocular lens, more commonly referred to as an IOL. Up until now, the lenses available only allowed for improved near and far focus, meaning there was still a strong likelihood of needing eyeglasses post-surgery. The new trifocal lens can accommodate near, intermediate, and distance vision, bringing a far higher possibility of optimal sight at all distances and negating the need to wear eyeglasses at all.
