    Presbyopia – as we age, the natural lens of our eye loses its flexibility, making it difficult to focus on things up-close.  This condition is called “presbyopia” and affects everyone, usually starting in your mid-40’s.  Because of this blurred vision for close-up tasks, most people turn to reading glasses.  However, as many have discovered, reading glasses may not be convenient for your active lifestyle.  The good news is that, with lifestyle lenses, you may be able to reduce or eliminate your need for reading glasses!

    ReSTOR®

    For most patients, life without reading glasses or bifocals is something they either experienced before presbyopia, or they just dreamed about for most of their lives. Today the AcrySof® ReSTOR® IOL is turning those dreams into reality with its revolutionary lens technology, which is designed to allow patients to see clearly at all distances without bifocals or reading glasses. The ReSTOR® IOL is now available and delivers a high level of glasses-free vision for cataract patients.

    In a clinical study, 80% of patients receiving the ReSTOR® IOL reported that they never wear glasses for any activities. With the ReSTOR® IOL they can read a book, work on a computer, and drive a car – day or night – with an increased freedom from glasses. In fact, patients were so pleased with their vision that nearly 94% of patients said they would have the ReSTOR® IOL implanted again if given the choice.

    Tecnis®

    The Tecnis® Multifocal Lens is a multifocal intraocular lens. Unlike traditional single-vision lens implants, the Tecnis® lens provides quality vision both at a distance and up close. Traditional single-vision lenses usually provide good vision only at a distance with limited ability to see objects that are near without glasses.  The Tecnis® Multifocal Lens not only replaces the natural lens clouded by a cataract, but also allows the patient to correct prior nearsightedness, farsightedness and presbyopia.

    Tecnis® Symfony Lens

    Heaton Eye Associates, always at the forefront of technology, is pleased to be the first practice in East Texas to offer patients the Tecnis® Symfony Lens.  Symfony is an FDA-approved lens that offers patients more safety and sharper vision after cataract surgery.  This extended range of vision IOL delivers a continuous, full range of high quality vision with less halos and glare. Symfony provides seamless day-to-night vision, allowing patients to see clearly at near, intermediate and far, as well as all points in between.

    Toric Lens

    According to statistics, 1 in 6, or 45 million, people in the U.S. are affected by astigmatism.  Astigmatism is an irregularity in the shape of the cornea that causes vision to be blurry or distorted.  With Toric IOL implants, patients can enjoy clear, crisp vision free from both cataracts and astigmatism.
