Standard Lens

Cataract surgery routinely includes the placement of a synthetic, inert, plastic lens to help light focus into the eye.  Without a lens, light will not focus, requiring very thick, "coke-bottle" glasses.  The standard or basic intraocular lens has been used for decades to help patients see better after cataract removal.  As technology advances, patients are faced with many decisions when it is time for cataract surgery.  Specialty lenses require additional fees, not covered by insurance.  These lenses require thorough and precise measurements and no other ocular pathology.  Many patients do not qualify for the lens due to macular degeneration, advanced glaucoma, other retinal pathology, irregular astigmatism, scarring, or other ocular issues.  A standard intraocular lens is a great option for those who do not qualify for the other lenses or for patients who do not mind wearing glasses after cataract surgery.
