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. Key-Whitman Eye Center is one of the few eye centers that offer 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:

Advanced Technology Lenses (No Glasses Most Of The Time)

Light Adjustable Lens by RxSight® (LAL)

The LAL is a wonderful option as it gives patients the option to “test-drive” their vision after they have healed from surgery and we can use a special UV light to fine tune correction to give the best possible vision.

Vivity by Alcon®

The Vivity lens uses non-diffractive technology called X-Wave™ which stretches and shifts light without splitting it to provide quality vision at distance, excellent intermediate vision and functional vision at near. Vivity is also available in a toric version for patients with astigmatism.

PanOptix by Alcon®

PanOptix is the first and only Tri-Focal lens implant designed to clear and complete focus. It too comes in a toric version.

Tecnis® Symfony

With the FDA-approved Tecnis Symfony lens, patients are able to change focus at far and intermediate and it can correct astigmatism.

Tecnis® Multifocal

This multifocal lens implant is designed to reduce the need for glasses, treating presbyopia at the time of cataract surgery.

Crystalens® and Trulign®

Crystalens® and Trulign® are accommodating lenses which are designed to offer a wide range of vision for near, far or intermediate by moving within the eye like the natural lens did when you were younger. The Trulign works to correct astigmatism too.


This multifocal lens implant by Ft. Worth’s own Alcon is designed to treat presbyopia as well as cataracts.

Dr. Whitman discusses what’s new in Cataract Surgery

Custom Technology Lenses (Glasses For Reading/ Computer All The Time)


Eyhance is the newest extended depth of focus lens by Johnson and Johnson Vision that can give excellence vision for most at distance with improved vision at intermediate when combined with astigmatism correction. With traditional cataract surgery, your surgeon may recommend the Eyhance Monofocal lens.

Traditional Toric Lens

Toric lenses are designed to treat the patient’s astigmatism at the same time as treating the cataract by implanting a lens with the patient’ needed correction built-in. Patients choosing the traditional toric lens will need to wear glasses for reading and all tasks within arms-length distance.

FS Laser Limbal Relaxing Incisions (LRI)

For low levels of astigmatism, our surgeons can now use the femtosecond laser to reduce astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery.

Manual Limbal Relaxing Incisions (Manual LRI)

Your Key-Whitman surgeon may reduce low levels of astigmatism at the time of cataract surgery with manual limbal relaxing incisions.

Basic Technology Lenses (Glasses All The Time)


Monofocal or traditional lens implants are designed to treat cataracts and are available for patients who do not mind wearing glasses or contacts for all activities.
