Precision Lens is proud to partner with manufacturers that share our goal of providing safe, top-of-the line care for patients during their vision correction procedures.
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are medical devices that are implanted inside the eye to replace the eye's natural lens when it is removed during cataract surgery. These lenses used primarily to correct vision-related issues, such as cataracts. IOLs also are used for a type of vision correction surgery called refractive lens exchange. Today there is a wide variety of IOLs to choose from. The best intraocular lens depends on many factors, including the patient’s lifestyle and specific visual needs. The different types of IOLs offered are: Monofocal, Multifocal, Accommodating and Toric.
Viscoelastics, also referred to as Ophthalmic Viscosurgical Devices, or OVDs, are viscous substances that allow us to make phacoemulsification easier and safer. Once the first incision is made into the eye, it has a tendency to collapse as the aqueous leaks out. The larger the incision, the greater the propensity for the eye to collapse and the greater the risk to the patient. By replacing the aqueous with a thicker viscoelastic, we can prevent the collapse of the eye. There are two main classes of viscoelastics, dispersive and cohesive.
Although ophthalmic procedures are possible without assistance from equipment, the devices available within the ophthalmic industry have allowed doctors to improve surgical outcomes for their patients. The types of equipment that we offer are: Phaco Systems, Leica Microscopes and Catalys Laser.
Instruments & Devices
The wide variety of instruments available to surgeons allows them to customize their tools based on personal preference. From the angle of the knife blade to the grip on the IOL manipulator, surgeons can perfect their results by finding what works best for them.
