What are premium intraocular lenses?

Premium intraocular lenses (IOLs) are a type of artificial lens used to replace the eye's natural, clouded lens (called a cataract) during cataract surgery. In addition to improving vision loss caused by cataracts, IOLs can treat other vision concerns, such as refractive errors. If you are a patient with a common refractive error who wishes to reduce their dependence on glasses or contacts following cataract surgery, there may be a premium IOL option that could benefit you. If you have myopia (nearsightedness), hyperopia (farsightedness), presbyopia (age-related vision loss), or astigmatism (abnormally shaped cornea), and are looking at your options for cataract surgery, speak with our West County Ophthalmology team about our premium IOLs. Contact one of our centers in Chesterfield or O'Fallon, MO to learn more about these advanced options.

What can I expect with premium IOLs?

During your initial consultation appointments for cataract surgery, our ophthalmologists can evaluate your vision and present you with the different premium IOL options that could address your needs. Our practice carries several different lenses that are biocompatible and FDA-approved. Depending on your vision concerns, you may be able to get lenses that improve distance or near vision, night vision, or that can correct astigmatism.

When you select a premium IOL option, you can reduce your dependence on glasses or contacts. Some patients can even have clear vision following surgery without corrective lenses. Your ophthalmologist can help determine if you are a candidate for this type of lens.
