Your Lens Implant Options
Selecting the right implant for your eye is very important for your vision after cataract surgery. Your doctor will take measurements before your surgery to determine how strong your lens is, so an implant with the same strength can be put in during the surgery. If you wear glasses, the implant strength can be adjusted to replace both your lens and your glasses.
Like your aging lens, the implant cannot change its shape to help you see both up close and off at a distance. But several options are available to help you minimize— or even eliminate—your need for any type of glasses after cataract surgery.
