When you have a cataract, it can have a major impact on your quality of life, keeping you from doing the things that you love to do. It’s a problem that won’t go away on its own. There is nothing that you can do to make it better. As long as that cataract is there, it’s going to cloud your vision. Wait too long and you may barely be able to see at all. Cataract surgery can give you back the gift of your sight. TECNIS® monofocal lenses exist as a way to ensure that your procedure is a success.
What is a TECNIS® Monofocal Lens?
A monofocal lens from TECNIS® is an FDA-approved intraocular lens, or IOL, that is actually implanted in your eye after your cataract has been removed. It provides you with an extended range of vision. When you have cataract surgery, it involves a delicate process in which your clouded lens is removed. However, you cannot see clearly without a lens in your eye. This is where the TECNIS® monofocal lens comes in. With a TECNIS® monofocal lens, you can expect quality and clarity. You will also have a replacement lens that will last for a long time. By choosing TECNIC® monofocal lenses, you will have optimal results when it comes to your ability to see at close range, at a distance and anywhere in between.
Don’t Leave Your Vision to Chance
After going through cataract removal, you want to have a legacy of fulfilling years. You need clear vision if you are going to make the most of every day. Our eye specialist will help you by finding the TECNIS® monofocal lens that is right for you. You may or may not need glasses once your lens has been inserted. Every patient is different. The most important thing to remember is that you will be able to see again. Don’t miss a second of your life. A TECNIS® monofocal lens can make a huge difference.
What to Expect
You can expect an outpatient procedure when you come in for your TECNIS® monofocal lens implantation. It may take approximately an hour. During the procedure, your cataract will be carefully removed and your TECNIS® monofocal lens will be skillfully implanted. Once you are sent home for recovery, it may take a few days for your vision to become clear as your eye begins to heal. With healing, you can expect clarity and more vibrant colors.
