CATARACT SURGERY LENS OPTIONS
First, Which Lens is Right for Me?
During cataract surgery, the patient’s natural lens is replaced with
an artificial replacement intraocular lens or IOL. This procedure is extremely
safe and very effective. Key-Whitman Eye Center is one of the few eye
centers that offers you a full range of lens options, so it is important
to meet with our doctors and staff to explore which lens is the best match
for your lifestyle. We appreciate that there is no one else exactly like
you… that’s why we invite you to talk with us to understand
exactly what you want for your vision moving forward.
At Key-Whitman Eye Center, you are treated with respect and individual
attention, and you are given the full range of options you deserve, which include:
