Great news for cataract patients: Lifestyle Lens Implants
Cataract surgery is one of the safest and most commonly performed procedures in the world. Over 95% of all patients report seeing at least 20/40 – good enough for driving – after surgery.
Previously, patients undergoing lens implant surgery received a monofocal – or single focus lens implant. Monofocal lenses generally provide excellent distance vision, but often result in continued dependence on glasses or contacts to correct near and intermediate vision.
Today, thanks to advancements in lens implant technology, patients enjoy a
greater independence from glasses and contacts and a much broader range of vision and than ever before. These multifocal and accommodating lenses are designed to allow you to perform most of your daily activities with a reduced dependence on prescription eyewear. At Eye Associates, we now offer different FDA approved lens implant options, designed to suit your lifestyle needs.

Your health insurance plan should pay for standard cataract surgery with a standard monofocal lens implant. You will still be responsible for any required deductible or co-payments. Most insurance plans do not cover the additional costs associated with multifocal or accommodating lens implants, blended monovision, limbal relaxing incisions or astigmatism management options. Our physicians and staff will thoroughly discuss your options with you, help you determine which lens option is right for you and walk you through any costs associated with that before you make the final decision to have cataract surgery.
