Cataract Surgery Lens Options

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:
