About Cataract Lens Options

Around two million people require cataract surgery each year. Depending on your needs, we offer laser-assisted cataract surgery or traditional cataract surgery. No matter which one you choose, both aim to remove a cloudy lens and replace it with an artificial lens or an intraocular lens (IOL). This specialized lens acts as your natural lens, and often, we can improve your vision with premium IOL options. For patients in San Antonio, TX, Dr. Kristin Held offers different options to match lifestyle preferences and prescription needs. If you think you have cataracts or you are due for an eye exam, please call our team to learn more about IOLs and how they can help address your vision needs and improve your ocular health.

Types of intraocular lenses (IOLs)

Known as artificial lenses, Dr. Held implants intraocular lenses (IOLs) into your eyes after removing a cataract with laser or traditional cataract surgery. Often, patients can achieve better vision and may not need to wear contacts or glasses after the surgery. However, Dr. Held will provide full details at your consultation and answer any questions you may have during your visit. At Eye Surgeon Direct, we proudly provide several durable options, including:

  • Monofocal IOLs: Enable patients to see things at a distance
  • Multifocal IOLs: Help men and women see things up close, middle distances, and far distances
  • Toric IOLs: Enhance seeing things at a distance for patients with a severe astigmatism
