The cost of cataract surgery is covered by health insurance companies provided you satisfy your deductibles, agree to the copays, stay within your network, and accept the basic package.The basic package includes 90 days of post-operative care with no additional office visit fees related to cataract surgery.
More recently, two new toric IOLs have become available: the Tecnis toric from Abbott Medical Optics and the Trulign toric from Bausch Lomb, the latter created on the Crystalens platform. Koch, professor of ophthalmology at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, was involved in the clinical trials of the Tecnis toric and has worked with the Tecnis lens for about three years. “There are many similarities between the Acry Sof and Tecnis torics; they’re both on a single-piece, hydrophobic platform and they’re both terrific lenses.
They differ in that the Tecnis is clear, not yellow, and it has a little more negative spherical aberration and less chromatic aberration.
It is a new type of "extended depth of focus" lens that uses a different design than multifocal and accommodating lenses.
I had Symfony lenses implanted in both eyes the first week of December.
This intraocular lens provides correction for astigmatism while delivering a broad range of improved vision for patients undergoing cataract surgery.
The FDA granted approval of this lens on May 21st, 2013.By 1 week postop my uncorrected vision at distance was between 20/15 and 20/20.At near my vision was already about 20/25 (but fluctuating a bit it had seemed better earlier that day).During cataract surgery, your physician will replace your natural lens with an IOL.Today there are multiple types of IOLs, each delivering a different performance profile based on how the lens is designed.He implants the Trulign Toric Posterior Chamber IOL and orients it to the correct axis such that no rotation is recommended by the ORA.
