Presbyopia Correcting Implants in Nashville, TN
Presbyopia is a condition that occurs with age and impacts how well you can see objects close-up. Reading glasses are a common way to correct the problems caused by presbyopia, but you may qualify for presbyopia correcting implants as a permanent solution. Jeffrey D. Horn, MD, of Vision for Life offers presbyopia correcting implants for the residents of Nashville, Clarksville, Lebanon and the surrounding communities of Tennessee.
What are Presbyopia Correcting Implants?
Cataract surgery requires the replacement of the lens of your eye. If you opt for presbyopia correcting implants, you can also improve your near-vision with the same surgery. These types of lenses come in two styles:
- Multifocal lens implants
- Accommodating lens implants
If you are a candidate for these types of presbyopia-correcting implants, Dr. Horn will explain the advantages of using the implants for your cataract surgery.
Benefits of Presbyopia Correcting Implants
Traditional cataract surgery and procedures that are most often covered by insurance use standard monofocal lens implants that are designed to correct the problem associated with cataracts. If you have other vision problems, such as needing reading glasses, you can elect to have presbyopia correcting implants. You will not only treat your cataracts, but also reduce your dependence on reading glasses.
What Should I Expect from Presbyopia Correcting Implants?
Dr. Horn specializes in cataract surgery with presbyopia-correcting implants, so you feel confident in the outcome of your procedure. Before the surgery, he will use advanced technology to take measurements of your eye. The measurements are used to design the lens implant for your surgery. During the procedure, he precisely places the presbyopia correcting implants on your eyes to ensure clear, improved vision after the procedure.
Are Presbyopia Correcting Implants Right for Me?
If you have cataracts and rely on reading glasses for tasks that are performed at arm’s length or closer, you may be a good candidate for presbyopia correcting implants. During the consultation, Dr. Horn will examine your eyes and advise you about your candidacy for presbyopia correcting implants.
How Much Does Presbyopia Correcting Implants Cost in Nashville?
