Cataracts, Aging Eyes and Cataract Correction Surgery

Over 3 million people undergo cataract correction surgery each year. It is a safe, convenient, comfortable and effective procedure. At Magill Vision Center, we offer the latest in premium cataract surgery technology. Not only does a cataract procedure fix the problem of cataracts, we give patients better vision than they may have had in their youth.

With age, the lenses that help your eyes focus becomes hard, yellow and cloudy, which blocks and scatters light, causing blurry vision and problems with glare. To restore vision that has been lost or impaired by a cataract, the cloudy lens must be removed and replaced with a clear artificial lens implant.

With today's advanced cataract lens replacement procedures offered at Magill Vision Center, you now have a choice in the type of lens that is implanted during cataract surgery, diminishing or eliminating the need for glasses or contact lenses. Lens options include monofocal, multifocal and accommodating IOLs. 

Multifocal IOLs are lens implants used in cataract lens replacement surgery that are designed to help patients see at varying distances using different points of focus. The goal is to provide clear vision at different distances and minimize or eliminate the need for glasses. The multifocal IOL uses advanced optic technology that enables both distance and near focus at all times. Accommodating IOLs are another innovative lens option that can restore vision for all distances.
