  • New York, NY (1888PressRelease) July 24, 2010 - Drs. Schultze and Eden offer you the most advanced intraocular cataract implant choices at Cornea Consultants of Albany, New York. A patient has a one-time lens implant choice of either a standard or premium lens implant. When a cataract affects a patient's quality of life, the patient can decide to move forward with small incision cataract surgery to improve their vision

    "Standard monofocal lens implants are selected in about 80% of our cataract surgery patients" Robert A. Eden, MD said. "These lenses provide excellent quality of vision with fixed distance vision. This means that your best vision will be for those things that are far away. Eyeglasses will be needed to correct for near vision activities like reading, applying makeup, shaving, sewing, and pressing the buttons of your cell phone. The correction distance preferred is a personal decision based on which types of activities you would most like to perform with reduced dependence on eyeglasses. The monofocal implant is best suited for people who do not mind wearing glasses or people who have certain eye diseases that may limit their vision after surgery. Medicare and most private insurers will pay for the cataract surgery and the cost of this implant less patient co-pay amounts."

    "Advanced multifocal implants are selected by about 20% of our cataract surgery patients," Robert L. Schultze, MD said. "These lenses will enable you see far away and be able to see close, but may not totally eliminate your need for glasses. It should help you with reading the paper, looking at map or seeing things 16 to 20 inches in front of you like your computer screen. These advanced lenses have been available for about five years and results our patients have are pretty exciting. In fact, they are some of the happiest patients we have." Dr. Schultze was the first surgeon in Upstate NY to perform ReSTOR® IOL surgery.

    There are currently three advanced multifocal lens choices. AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOL gives you the best opportunity for improved image quality and a full range of vision - near, far and everything in-between - with increased independence from glasses or bifocals. Unlike conventional single-vision (monofocal) lens implants, state-of-the-art ReZoom® lenses have been specially designed with multifocal zones that provide good vision across the spectrum of varying distances and light conditions. Crystalens® is an accommodating intraocular lens that, unlike a standard IOL, can treat both a person's cataracts and presbyopia-loss of near and intermediate vision. Drs. Schultze and Eden have experience with each of them.
