What Sets the PanOptix Trifocal Lens Apart?
Do you have cataracts and need cataract surgery? The intraocular lens (IOL) you choose to replace your natural lens during cataract surgery matters.
Although cataract surgery with a standard IOL or other premium lens implants will restore vision, they’re limited in how they can improve your eyesight. If you’re looking to reduce or eliminate your dependence on glasses or contact lenses after cataract surgery, you might want to consider the PanOptix trifocal lens.
Keep reading to learn more about what sets the PanOptix trifocal IOL apart and how it can give you the freedom you’ve always wanted.
What is the PanOptix Trifocal Lens?
The PanOptix trifocal IOL is the first and only trifocal lens implant in the US to receive FDA approval. It’s a type of advanced technology cataract lens implant that offers a broader range of vision without visual aids after cataract surgery. The intraocular lens delivers clear vision up close, at a distance, and at intermediate ranges, all without needing glasses or contacts.
How it Works
The PanOptix trifocal lens is revolutionary. Part of its revolutionary technique comes from the fact that it’s designed with ENLIGHTEN Optical Technology.
The proprietary technology enhances intermediate vision without compromising close-up or distance vision. With other lenses, including premium IOLs, patients experience gaps in vision. ENLIGHTEN technology eliminates any gaps by:
Splitting Light Into Three Focal Points
Light management is everything when it comes to light-splitting IOL technology. The PanOptix lens assigns half the available light to the distance focal point.
The remaining half is divided equally between up close and intermediate, ensuring excellent light utilization. ENLIGHTEN then allows 88 percent of light to be transmitted to the retina.
By maximizing light utilization and increasing the amount of light that reaches your retina, the PanOptix IOL can provide crisp, clear vision at any distance. It also allows you to see clearly under multiple lighting conditions, including bright, low, daylight, and dim light.
Setting the Intermediate Focal Point to a Distance Meeting the Demands of Today’s Lifestyle Needs
Other premium lenses have an intermediate focal point of 80 centimeters. Eighty centimeters may be further than most people can comfortably reach easily.
The PanOptix trifocal lens uses ENLIGHTEN to attain an optimal focal point of 60 centimeters, which is a more comfortable distance to perform activities like working on your computer, cooking, and shopping. Patients with the PanOptix trifocal lens enjoy clear vision at near, intermediate, and far distances.
For most, it also means no longer depending on glasses or contact lenses to see.
What the PanOptix Trifocal Lens Can Do for Your Vision
Here’s how the PanOptix IOL can enhance your vision and life.
Clear, Uninterrupted Vision
One of the most significant advantages of the PanOptix trifocal IOL is that it doesn’t cause any gaps in vision. Because of that, you’ll enjoy crisp, continuous sight with no blurry zones whenever you shift your focus.
With the PanOptix trifocal IOL, you can enjoy reading a book, working on your computer, and driving in crisp clarity without wearing prescription glasses or contacts. There’s an exceptional reason why so many patients with the PanOptix trifocal lens report being extremely satisfied with their choice of IOL!
Corrects Multiple Vision Concerns
The PanOptix trifocal lens helps address several issues with your vision. Not only can it correct refractive errors like nearsightedness and farsightedness, but with the toric model, it can address astigmatism.
When you have astigmatism, your cornea is closer to a football in shape rather than round like a baseball. Not having a round cornea affects your ability to see clearly. The irregular curvature of the cornea results in distorted or blurry vision at any distance.
Thanks to the toric version of the PanOptix trifocal IOL, you can correct the visual distortion caused by astigmatism while ending up with the best vision of your life.
In addition to correcting refractive errors, the PanOptix trifocal IOL can also correct presbyopia. After choosing this premium lens, you can look forward to reducing your dependence on visual aids, including the frustrations that come with reading glasses due to presbyopia.
Minimizing Possible Side Effects
Even though cataract surgery restores any vision lost to cataracts, older technology in multifocal IOLs and other lens implants is known to cause side effects like halos and glare. The PanOptix IOL reduces these disturbances.
More importantly, you will be less dependent on glasses or contacts. The PanOptix trifocal IOL allows you to see with crisp, sharp clarity. Colors will look brighter and more vivid, and compared to your vision with cataracts, you won’t have to worry about glare and halos, which is especially important if you’re driving at night.
UV Light and Blue Light Protection
Smartphones, laptops, tablets, desktop computers, and TVs emit harmful blue light that can lead to eye strain, dry eyes, poor sleep, and other uncomfortable symptoms. Additionally, spending too much time in the sun can increase your risk for photokeratitis, growth in the eye, and even eye cancer. Every time you’re in the sun or exposed to blue light without protection, you could add damage.
You can sleep better at night and considerably decrease the risk of damage to your eyes with the PanOptix trifocal lens. PanOptix trifocal IOLs are made with UV-filtering and blue-light filtering material. This material shields your eyes from the damage caused by excessive screen use and too much sun exposure.
The Ideal Vision for an Active Lifestyle
If you want vision that can keep up with an active lifestyle, the PanOptix trifocal IOL is worth considering. Because the advanced technology IOL allows you to see incredibly well no matter what you’re doing, it’s perfect for an active lifestyle.
If you’ve been struggling with poor vision due to cataracts, the PanOptix trifocal lens will give you a new lease on life. With the premium lens implant, you can start or return to being active after cataract surgery.
You’ll find it easier and more fun to participate in different activities and sports, whether tennis, golf, cycling, swimming, yoga, bird watching, or dancing, without being held back by glasses or contact lenses. Moreover, because the PanOptix trifocal lens lets you see well in dim or low light, your active lifestyle won’t have to stop when the sun sets.
