Advanced Lens Implants in Nashville, TN
Your eyes lose the ability to adapt to the distance of objects that you are viewing. Advanced lens implants can be used as part of your cataract surgery to improve distance vision. Jeffrey D. Horn, MD, of Vision for Life offers advanced lens implants for the residents of Nashville, Clarksville, Mt. Juliet and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.
What are Advanced Lens Implants?
Standard lens implants that are used for cataract surgery are not specifically designed to improve your vision at various distances. Rather, the implants are used only to replace a rigid, clouded lens. With advanced lens implants, Dr. Horn can simultaneously correct your cataracts and any vision problems you have, such as needing eyeglasses for distance viewing or reading glasses. The implants can also be used to correct astigmatism which is an irregular shape of the cornea that causes blurry vision.
Benefits of Advanced Lens Implants
Advanced lens implants treat your cataracts and correct any vision problems with one simple procedure. Having the implants will reduce your eyeglass prescription or reduce your dependence on glasses to see objects far and near. This gives you:
- Greater range of clear vision
- Improved ability to switch quickly from distance viewing to close-up tasks
- Better vision capability in a variety of lighting
What Should I Expect from Advanced Lens Implants?
Your advanced lens implants are incorporated into your cataract surgery. Instead of using standard lens implants, Dr. Horn will place the advanced lens implant on your eye as part of the surgery.
Are Advanced Lens Implants Right for Me?
The primary considerations for advanced lens implants are:
- Your ability to pay more out-of-pocket compared to standard lens implants which are covered by insurance.
- Your desire to treat your cataracts and improve vision with one procedure.
- Your desire to use eyeglasses and reading glasses less for daily activities.
