Do you have cataract surgery looming in your future? Have you begun to think about what the cataract surgery process is going to include?

If cataract surgery is imminent, you have choices to make that can affect your vision for the rest of your life. For instance, you will have to decide the IOL you are going to have implanted to replace your natural lens.

This decision will define the limits and capabilities of your vision after cataract surgery. Keep reading to learn why you should consider the PanOptix trifocal IOL.

What is the PanOptix Trifocal Lens?

Intraocular lenses, or IOLs, are what replace your natural lens during cataract surgery. And there is a wide range of options to choose from.

You can elect to have a standard or monofocal IOL implanted, but they come with some limitations. Monofocal IOLs only correct vision at one distance.

Most people with monofocal IOLs correct their distance vision. This means you’ll need to continue using glasses for up-close activities like reading.

The PanOptix trifocal gives you a different, better option. It is the first trifocal IOL approved by the FDA.

A trifocal IOL has refractive powers at all vision distances. That means you don’t need glasses for most activities with the PanOptix trifocal.

It can give you clear eyesight up-close, far away, and in between. And it also gives you smooth transitions between all distances.

Go from reading to watching tv to driving without changing lenses, putting glasses on, or taking them off. You can do all that without thinking about how you’re going to see what you look at next.

The PanOptix trifocal gives you true visual freedom. If you’ve had refractive errors your whole life, it could give you the best eyesight you’ve ever had.

Why Should You Consider The PanOptix Trifocal?

If you’re an active individual who does a wide variety of activities, the PanOptix trifocal is ideal for you. If you like to play golf, read, go to concerts and do anything else, the PanOptix trifocal makes your life easier.

You can tee off on the golf course and see the ball clearly at your feet without glasses or contacts. Then, you can see it just as clearly as it soars through the air, without any vision loss or disruption.

Does Insurance Cover The PanOptix Trifocal IOL?

Medicare and most insurance plans only cover cataract surgery that uses monofocal IOLs. For a premium IOL like the PanOptix trifocal IOL, you will have to pay out of pocket.

But if you are considering the PanOptix trifocal, price should not be a factor. The only thing to consider is how you want your life to be after cataract surgery.

Do you want to tote glasses around everywhere and have to pull them out anytime you need to read anything? Putting reading glasses on to do anything close to your face and having trouble seeing the tv with your readers?

With the PanOptix trifocal, all these hassles are gone. You’ll forget your vision problems because your eyesight will be so clear, no matter what you’re looking at.

If you need cataract surgery soon, talk to your eye doctor about the PanOptix Trifocal IOL. It could be a life-changing conversation.
