Premium IOLs

Not only do premium IOLs effectively replace lenses damaged by cataracts, but they can also address visual errors such as astigmatism and nearsightedness.

The cataract doctors and cataract surgeons at North Shore Eye Care are all board certified and experienced in the latest cataract surgery technology and techniques. Dr. Jeffrey Martin, Dr. Lawrence Zweibel and Dr. John Mauro perform cataract surgery through a microscopic incision using eye drop anesthesia without sutures, periocular needle injections or even an eye patch. Our patients stay in their own clothes and are able to return to the comfort of their home the very same day. This method of performing cataract surgery leads to the very best results and allows our Long Island patients to improve their quality of life.

Video: Intraocular Lens Options

When the lens of the eye is removed in cataract surgery, an intraocular lens implant replaces it to restore vision. With a number of different types of intraocular lenses available, Dr. Choinski and his team at North Shore Eye Care can provide a lens for a variety of patients with a variety of needs.

When a cataract is removed, an intraocular lens implant is placed to restore vision. Today, patients can choose to have premium implants that allow patients to see near and far without glasses in many cases. Accommodating lenses like the Crystalens® move in the eye and increase depth of vision in that way. When the focusing muscles of the eye flex, the lens moves forward slightly bringing near images into focus. The eye is able to focus from far to near with Crystalens®. The multifocal implants have rings that alternate far and near. With this lens, patients are able to simultaneously see far and near. Multifocal implants include ReSTOR® and TECNIS® Multifocal. 

I am so pleased with my vision after surgery. The team was friendly and made me feel very comfortable throughout the process.

There is also a lens that reduces or eliminates astigmatism called the Acrysof® Toric. This lens allows patients that would normally need glasses after cataract surgery to see without the need for glasses or contact lenses.
