Thanks to the latest breakthroughs in Intraocular Lens (IOL) development, we are able to offer our San Antonio cataract patients advanced laser cataract surgery that can provide clarity and correct their vision during the procedure.
Read on to discover more about our patients’ favorite IOL options to achieve clear, crisp vision after cataract surgery.

PanOptix Trifocal IOLs to See Near, Intermediate and Far
The PanOptix Trifocal IOL is designed to optimize intermediate vision without sacrificing near or far distance vision, providing many benefits to cataract patients, especially those with astigmatism.
Trifocal IOLs are ideal for patients who enjoy a modern, active lifestyle – indoors and outdoors, from mobile screen to computer screen to TV screen, and other common daily activities. According to recent study data, more than 99% of patients who had a procedure with the PanOptix lens would choose the lens again.
Parkhurst NuVision was one of the first practices in the United States to perform a bilateral (both eyes) cataract procedure with the PanOptix Trifocal lens. (Watch Mrs. Dora tell her story about her PanOptix procedure here.)

Multifocal IOLs for Clear, Crisp Vision at Multiple Distances
In the young healthy eye, the natural lens flexes to focus on objects at varying distances. Multifocal IOLs are designed to provide similar benefits after cataract surgery, achieving good uncorrected vision from near to far. They accomplish this goal by acting more like bifocals or trifocals implanted into each eye. Multifocal IOLs are designed to provide a complete range of vision independent of the ciliary body muscle. To achieve this, they combine the functions of both apodized diffractive and refractive optics
Apodization is the gradual reduction or blending of diffractive step heights that distribute the appropriate amount of light to near and distant focal points. While apodized diffractive optics are designed to improve image quality and minimize visual disturbances, some visual effects may be expected early-on, including halos around lights in night-time conditions. These resolve with neuroadaptation in almost all cases after healing is complete.

Toric IOLs for Those with Astigmatism
Good news for people who have struggled with distorted vision due to astigmatism: toric IOLs are now available for implantation at the time of cataract surgery to cure not only the cataract, but also the astigmatism some people have had for all their lives.
