Advanced Lens Implants

Customized IOLs

At nJoy Vision in OKC, various basic and premium Advanced Lens Implants or Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are offered that can be customized to suit your specific condition and lifestyle. Our board-certified eye surgeons use these options to treat different types of vision problems for patients from the Oklahoma City area, including Norman, Moore, and surrounding areas. They can help determine the IOL that’s right for you.

Light Adjustable Lens

The RxSight™ Light Adjustable Lens is the first and only intraocular lens (IOL) that can be customized after surgery. The Light Adjustable Lens is made of a special photosensitive material that can be adjusted in response to ultraviolet (UV) light. This optimization is done by your eye doctor in the weeks following lens implantation through a series of non-invasive light treatments that take only a few minutes each. You will have the unique ability to adjust and preview your vision until it meets your personal desires and lifestyle requirements. The Light Adjustable Lens delivers superior visual outcomes that non-adjustable lenses simply cannot match.  Imagine being able to test-drive your vision after surgery and having the ability to tailor your vision to your exact needs—that’s now possible with the Light Adjustable Lens.

Multifocal IOL

Multifocal IOLs provide both distance and near focus at the same time. The lens has different zones set at different powers and is designed so that your brain learns to select the right focus automatically. With multiple points of focus, one image is in focus at a time.

The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is the first in the United States that has the ability to provide enhanced vision for distance, intermediate and near.  It is a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide.

The TECNIS® Multifocal IOL is optimized for those favoring intermediate and near vision activities like grocery shopping and reading or sewing.  It delivers tailored clarity at a theoretical reading distance of 50 cm.  The TECNIS® Multifocal Family of IOLs features multifocal lenses capable of providing a full range of high-quality vision tailored for each patient’s lifestyle with sharp vision across near, intermediate and distance vision.

AcrySof ® Toric IQ (Alcon) and TECNIS® Toric II (J&J) are a couple of several brands of toric IOLs available that treat astigmatism as part of an RLE.  Your surgeon will select the lens for your eyes based on the examination measurements.  Over 125 million AcrySof® Lenses have been implanted and counting.

Advanced Technology Extended Depth of Focus IOL

The TECNIS Symfony® Extended Depth of Focus IOL is a breakthrough for RLE procedures. The TECNIS Symfony® lens is the first IOL available to correct for presbyopia that provides a continuous full range of high-quality vision. These lenses allow you to see clearly at near, intermediate and far distances and also minimize side effects associated with multifocal IOLs like glares and halos around lights.

The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL is a type of IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL provides clear distance vision (e.g., for watching children playing in the backyard). In addition, the AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ Extended Vision IOL allows for better intermediate (working on a computer, applying makeup or shaving) and some near (reading, knitting) vision compared to what a monofocal IOL would provide. The AcrySof® IQ Vivity™ IOL is not a multifocal IOL, as it uses a new Wavefront-Shaping technology to provide the broader range of vision.

Accommodating IOL

Crystalens® AO Lens is an artificial lens implant that can treat both a person’s cataracts and presbyopia —the clouding or hardening of your lenses, and the loss of near and intermediate vision, respectively. Crystalens was modeled after the human eye. Like the natural lens, it is a lens implant that uses the eye muscle to flex and accommodate in order to focus on objects in the environment at all distances. Crystalens dynamically adjusts to your visual needs. Many patients will have greater freedom from glasses after surgery, but you may still need reading glasses for small print or other near vision tasks.  The Crystalens® AO Lens may have less halos and glare when compared to multifocal IOL options.

Toric IOL for astigmatism

Basic lens implants are not able to adjust for astigmatism (an imperfection in the curvature of your cornea) which may also be affecting your vision. Toric IOLs are able to correct for astigmatism and, therefore, give you a better chance of good distance vision without glasses or contacts after your surgery.

Basic Monofocal IOL

Monofocal IOLs are basic artificial lenses that have one focusing distance. Your choice depends on what type of vision is most important to you—up close (reading), medium range (computer screen), or distance vision (driving). A monofocal IOL that results in clear distance vision can be supplemented by wearing glasses for reading and other close-range needs.

There are many available monofocal IOLs, including the new TECNIS Eyhance™ IOL that defies conventional thinking about monofocal IOLs by delivering not only high-quality distance vision, but also better low-light image contrast.
