If you do have cataracts, you may want to think about cataract surgery and choosing an IOL like the PanOptix trifocal lens. It will restore your vision and give you a new outlook on life.

Keep reading to learn about whether the PanOptix trifocal lens may be right for you!

What Is The PanOptix Trifocal Lens?

The PanOptix trifocal lens is the first and only trifocal lens that’s FDA-approved. It is a type of intraocular lens (IOL) that is implanted during cataract surgery to replace the natural lens in your eye.

A trifocal IOL enhances your vision by correcting and sharpening it. After having the IOL implanted, you will see more clearly and vividly. You’ll also no longer need to strain your eyes to see or focus.

With the PanOptix trifocal lens, you will be able to enjoy life again with clear vision. This durable and long-lasting IOL reduces your reliance on glasses and contacts after cataract surgery. You’ll even have excellent vision in all lighting conditions, even if it’s bright or dim!

How Do I Know If I Have Cataracts?

Scheduling a cataract screening is the only way to know if you have cataracts. You can talk to your eye doctor to determine if a trifocal IOL is right for you as well.

Cataracts form gradually as your eyes age. Your vision appears hazy as the natural lens in your eye becomes cloudy. If left untreated cataracts can lead to blindness.

Symptoms of cataracts include:

  • Blurry or cloudy vision
  • Not being able to see at night
  • Sensitivity to light
  • Having trouble reading because you can’t see the words clearly
  • Fading colors
  • Double vision in one eye

What To Expect From Cataract Surgery

Cataract surgery is a safe and effective procedure to replace the natural lens with an intraocular lens. You should experience little to no discomfort during the procedure.

Your pupils will be dilated and you’ll receive numbing eye drops to ensure you won’t feel any pain. Your surgeon will then make a small incision in your cornea to access the cataract and then break it up into small pieces and remove it.

The PanOptix trifocal lens is then implanted to replace the original lens. Intraocular lenses affect the quality and range of vision that you will have after surgery.

A trifocal lens ensures that you are able to see more clearly after cataract surgery and live your life to the fullest.

Enjoy Life Again!

Having cataract surgery improves your life a great deal. By seeing clearly, you’ll reduce your risk of falling and injuring yourself.

You won’t regret your decision to get the PanOptix trifocal IOL when you realize all the things that you have been missing out on.

Things like:

  • Going for a walk outside and looking at nature
  • Taking care of daily activities that are easier to do now because your vision is clearer
  • Spending time with your family
  • Reading a book, newspaper, or menu
  • Going on vacation
  • Painting, gardening, playing a musical instrument or playing a round of golf
