Cataract Implants

Standard Lens Implants

During cataract surgery, the eye’s cloudy lens is gently removed and replaced with a clear single-distance lens implant. The new lens is generally only effective for distance vision. Glasses will generally be needed for near and intermediate vision, meaning that these patients will likely need to wear glasses to see a television screen clearly or read small print, but the cloudiness and yellowing and loss of colors in their vision will be corrected.

Cataract surgery utilizing the implantation of a standard intraocular lens (IOL) is the most basic procedure.

Premium Lens Implant Options

The lastest innovations in premium lens implant technology allow patients to see near, far, and in between. Premium IOLs offer patients the ability to reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses or contacts after cataract surgery. For patients who opt for premium lens implants, the cataract surgery technique is the exact same, only the implant is different.

At Cutarelli Vision, we offer multiple premium IOL options that can reduce or eliminate the need for contacts, bifocals, glasses and possibly even reading glasses. Below are links to a few of the lenses we offer throughout Denver and Colorado.
