What is a Cataract?

A cataract is clouding of the lens inside the eye that results in debilitating glare or loss of vision.

Our skilled surgeons at Ohio Eye Alliance perform small incision cataract surgery that enables patients to have almost immediate recovery after surgery. We offer premium lens implants that reduce dependence on glasses after surgery for both far and near vision.

Intraocular Lenses:

Panoptix, Tecnis Symfony, ReSTOR, Tecnis Multifocal, and Toric Monofocal Lenses

Ohio Eye Alliance is proud to offer the latest, state-of-the-art intraocular lens implants (IOLs) to their patients who undergo cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange (RLE). These lenses include Panoptix, Tecnis Symfony, ReSTOR, Tecnis Multifocal, and Toric Monofocal Lenses. When implanted during cataract surgery or refractive lens exchange, these lenses provide patients with improved vision, thus reducing or eliminating their need for corrective eyewear such as eyeglasses or contact lenses.

Now the new advanced designs offer opportunities for glasses-free vision, and the many of these advanced lenses even correct for astigmatism. The disadvantage of the multifocal lens is a possible slight decrease of clarity in low contrast, or haloes with night driving, compared to single vision implants. There is an additional charge that is not covered by Medicare or Insurance, for election of one of these packages.

Ohio Eye Alliance, Inc. is proud to have Dr. Richard Lehrer, Dr. Sanjeev Dewan and Dr. Paul Garfinkle providing premium IOLs for our patients.

Regular and complete eye exams are of the utmost importance for protecting your vision.
