We’ve talked about cataracts before, so we won’t dwell on the finer points of the affliction today.
Suffice it to say that if you have difficulty driving at night or viewing a computer or smartphone screen, colors often appear dim or faded, or you frequently change your glasses prescription, you may be suffering from cataracts.
Presbyopia is a similar affliction that starts when the lens of the eye hardens. If you have trouble reading up close, or need reading glasses or bifocals, you may suffer from presbyopia.
At Boutique Eye Orlando, Dr. Haas specializes in the sort of non-invasive procedures that are performed about 15 million times a year to help cataracts and presbyopia sufferers see the world more clearly.
Today, we’d like to talk about the TECNIS® lens, a premium lens that not only restores your vision, but in 90% of cases, leaves patients completely free of the need for glasses.
The TECNIS® Difference
Removing a cataracts and replacing the lens of the eye is one of the most common procedures in the world, and has helped millions of people see more clearly.
The TECNIS® lens takes the results of that procedure to new heights. Patients’ vision improves almost immediately, and an astounding 94 percent of TECNIS® recipients are so satisfied they’d opt for the procedure again if given the chance.
The difference in the TECNIS® lens lies in its advanced design. Typical lenses may work well at a distance, but struggle with focusing on nearer objects. The TECNIS® lens is specifically engineered to perform at every distance, meaning whether an object is near, far, or somewhere in-between, you’ll see it just as clearly.
Equally impressive is the engineering feat that allows the TECNIS® lens to focus objects regardless of lighting conditions. The patented optics are designed to compensate for low light, so you can safely drive at night, easily read a menu in a dimly-lit restaurant, or see every moment of a brisk walk at dusk.
Cataracts and presbyopia are unfortunate facts of life – most of us will experience them at some point. As that happens, new breakthroughs in optic technology allow us to overcome the limits of our aging eyes.
The TECNIS® lens is one such breakthrough. Imagine being able to read menus, read the news online, or see every color of a sunset, regardless of lighting conditions, and without the need for glasses.
