Conditions Treated
  • Myopia, also known as nearsightedness, is a common type of refractive error where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.

  • Astigmatism causes your vision to be blurred at both near and far distances. It occurs when your cornea is shaped more like a football than a basketball.

  • Hyperopia, also known as farsightedness, affects nearly one in four people. Those with hyperopia can see distant objects very well but have difficulty focusing on objects that are close.

  • A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Most cataracts develop with advancing age, typically between ages 60-80.

Greater Clarity with Lifestyle Lenses

Choosing lifestyle lenses means going beyond treating your cataracts—it’s making a choice to dramatically enhance your vision, and taking a step toward independence from glasses and contacts.

Before Surgery

A cataract is the clouding of the eye’s natural lens. Symptoms of a cataract may include blurry or hazy vision, faded colors, difficulty seeing at night or sensitivity to light.

After Surgery

Vision is clearer and feels like the cloud has been lifted. If you have refractive issues, these may still be present post-surgery.

Lifestyle Lenses

A more premium option for cataract surgery, lifestyle lenses improve sight at a greater range of distances—and improve chances of seeing with limited use of glasses or contacts.

Common Questions About Lifestyle Lenses
  • If an individual would like to reduce his or her dependence on glasses, a lifestyle lens would be a good choice.

  • When a cataract causes your eye’s lens to lose its clarity, the only option is to replace it with an intraocular lens (also known as an IOL). Intraocular lenses are artificial lenses that are implanted to replace your natural lens when it is removed during surgery. The lens is permanent, needs no maintenance, and can remain in your eye for your entire life.

    The best IOL for you depends on your lifestyle and your visual needs.
