High prescription lens implants

Although LASIK and PRK are excellent options for 90% of our patients, some prescriptions are too high to be treated using a laser. These high prescriptions can be treated using synthetic lens implants (also called IOLs). Both high farsightedness and high nearsightedness can be eliminated or dramatically reduced using high tech IOLs. There is even a lens implant designed specifically to treat astigmatism.

Setup Consultation

The use of lens implants to correct vision is not new. Similar IOLs have been used to restore vision for millions of cataract patients. Patients that receive lens implants to eliminate their dependence upon thick glasses are benefiting from the very long track record (more than 30 years) of lens implant usage.

Dr. Wellemeyer has experience with the following FDA approved implants:

  • Crystalens
  • Verisyse
  • ICL
  • ReSTOR
  • Technis Multifocal
  • AcrySof Toric

"Even with contacts correcting my poor vision I still had problems with halos around runway lights at night. Immediately after surgery I could see better than I ever had. My vision is better than perfect and halo free."
