About Cataract Lens Options
Approximately two million people have cataract surgery every year. There are actually several procedures to choose from, but each one involves removing the cataract and replacing it with an artificial lens or intraocular lens (IOL). At Ticho Eye Associates, we offer multiple IOLs to suit the diverse needs of our clients. If you live in Chicago Ridge, IL, Tinley Park, IL, or Munster, IN, give our practice a call to learn more about the different cataract lenses we offer. Our skilled team of ophthalmologists is here to walk you through all your options to find the best fit for your lifestyle and vision impairment.

Who is a Candidate for Cataract Lenses?
Generally, if you’ve been diagnosed with cataracts, then you may be a good candidate for an artificial lens. Ticho Eye Associates will perform a thorough health assessment to determine your candidacy for IOLs. Our ophthalmologists can assess your vision and any underlying medical conditions before recommending a particular lens. We also take into account your age and lifestyle factors. Patients will be given a detailed set of pre-and post-operative instructions to ensure the best possible outcomes from their procedure.
Types of intraocular lenses (IOLs)
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are artificial lenses that are surgically placed on the eye once a cataract has been removed. Ticho Eye Associates is pleased to offer the following lenses:
- Monofocal IOLs: These types of IOLs improve distance vision after cataract surgery
- Multifocal IOLs: These lenses correct vision range at near, intermediate, and distance
- Toric IOLs: These implants sharpen distance vision for patients with high astigmatism
- AcrySof® IQ ReSTOR® IOLs: These devices improve vision at all distances and can be worn during the day or night without the need for reading glasses or bifocals
- AcrySof® IQ Vivity™: The Vivity lenses are ideal for patients with corneal astigmatism to provide extended intermediate vision
- PanOptix® IOLs: This brand of intraocular lenses is trifocal, allowing patients to experience three clear vision distances
