Locate Experienced Boise Cataract Surgeons

Boise cataract surgeons are board-certified ophthalmologists who have years of experience helping patients who suffer from cataracts. A cataract is a clouding of the eye's natural lens that generally occurs with age. Individuals who have cataracts are often unable to see clearly and may have difficulty performing daily tasks, sometimes even with glasses or contact lenses. The only permanent treatment for cataracts is the surgical removal of the eye's crystalline lens. In order to remove the cataract, the entire lens must be surgically extracted from the eye. During the surgery, the lens is replaced with an artificial implant designed to function just like the real crystalline lens and provide clear vision following the cataract surgery procedure.

What Are Artificial Lens Implants?

Also known as IOLs (intraocular lenses), artificial lens implants are similar to contact lenses in appearance but have been designed to permanently replace the eye's natural lens for restored vision after cataract surgery. Certain types of IOLs may also be used for presbyopia correction. Phakic IOLs are often an excellent vision correction option for Boise laser eye surgery patients who do not qualify for LASIK surgery. Boise eye surgeons offer a range of premium IOLs to help postoperative cataract surgery patients see clear at most distances. Premium IOLs generally fall into three categories: multifocal IOLs such as AcrySof ReSTOR and Tecnis; toric IOLs for astigmatism correction and accommodating IOLs such as Crystalens. Although other types of accommodating IOLs are being developed, at this time Crystalens is the only available IOL with accommodating power. Accommodating IOLs have the unique ability to move within the eye in order to accommodate the eye's focusing efforts.

With a range of different types of IOLs available today, it is essential that you ask your Boise cataract surgeon to help you select the best IOL that will serve you unique vision needs following your cataract surgery recovery time.
