What are Lifestyle Lenses?

As you get older, you may develop one or more age-related eye conditions which impact your ability to see clearly. One of the most common conditions experienced by people over the age of 50 is cataracts. As you age, your eye’s lens may become cloudy, preventing it light from focusing properly. In order to restore clear vision, you will need to undergo cataract surgery to remove your eye’s clouded lens and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL).

Traditional IOLs were monofocal, which means they could only focus on far-away objects. As a result, many cataract surgery patients still required reading glasses after surgery. However, advances in IOL technology have resulted in IOLs which focus on objects at a variety of distances. These premium IOLs, also referred to as lifestyle lenses, can help you see clearly at all distances (near, intermediate, and far) after cataract surgery, eliminating the need for glasses or contacts following your procedure.
