Creating Customized Vision

Cataract surgery is constantly changing with new lens options and technology. If you have been diagnosed with cataracts, selecting a surgeon that will work with you to make sure you are getting the most out of your vision is important. Dr. Ernest takes time during your exam to determine your eye health, learn what is important to you, what your hobbies are then uses a system to determine what lens is the best fit for your lifestyle.

Depth-of-Focus Lenses

A new category of intraocular lenses called "Depth-of-Focus" or "Extended Range of Focus" is helping patients see at varying distances, providing an extended range of vision unlike conventional monofocal or "single vision" lenses. For today's active cataract patients these advanced lenses provide functional, high quality vision from far distance to near to minimize the use of glasses. Although they might still prefer to wear glasses for prolonged reading, the vast majority of patients experience freedom from glasses for tasks such as driving, watching TV, using their cell phone and computer, and menus.
