Alliance Ophthalmology offers a variety of LifeStyle Lens procedures for patients who live active lifestyles and want to reduce or eliminate the need to wear glasses or bifocals.
With our LifeStyle Lenses, Dr. Strange will customize each procedure to your individual vision needs and active lifestyles. So, whether you love to golf, play sports, sightsee or enjoy a good book, we have a procedure tailor-made for you.
AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Lens is the first and only trifocal lens in the U.S. that provides an outstanding range of vision without blurry zones, so you can focus without straining.
Please keep the following in mind:
- Do not evaluate your vision until you have had surgery in both eyes. It is very difficult for your brain to accept the difference in the vision between your two eyes until they can work together and adjust to your new vision.
- You may see some glare and halos around lights after surgery. These usually improve within a few months.
- You can expect to see well and read comfortably in different lighting conditions.
- Your range of vision should be excellent and with time will adjust. Have patience.
AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal Lens Important Product Information
Restricted by law to sale by or on the order of a physician.
The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide.
There is a chance that you still may need glasses for distance, intermediate, and/or near vision. You will get the full benefit of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL when it is placed in both eyes. Please discuss with your eye doctor whether this is the right IOL for you.
POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS:
Due to the design of multifocal IOLs, there are some side effects that can be associated with the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL models. These may be worse than with a monofocal IOL, including visual disturbances such as glare, rings around lights, starbursts (rays around light sources), and reduced contrast sensitivity (decrease in ability to distinguish objects from their background, especially in dim lighting). These side effects may make it more difficult to see while driving at night or completing tasks in low lighting conditions such as at night or in fog, or in a dimly lit room after surgery as compared to before surgery.
Further, a toric IOL corrects astigmatism only when it is placed in the correct position in the eye. There is a possibility that the toric IOL could be placed incorrectly or could move within the eye. If the toric lens is not positioned correctly following surgery, the change in your astigmatism correction by the IOL, along with any necessary correction with glasses, may cause visual distortions. If the lens rotates in your eye, you may need additional surgery to reposition or replace the IOL.
As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Prior to surgery, ask your eye doctor to provide you with the Patient Information Brochure for the proposed AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL to be implanted. This document will further inform you of the risks and benefits associated with this IOL. Discuss any questions about possible risks and benefits with your eye doctor, as well as your medical condition and any eye disease you may have.
