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.

"First I want to thank god for allowing my surgery and recovery to go smoothly, and without any complications. And secondly a huge thank you to Dr. Ticho, a month ago I was pretty much blind in both my eyes due to cataracts. Dr. Ticho answered all of my questions and made me feel extremely comfortable throughout my entire experience. I went in confident that he was more than capable of performing my surgery due to his constant reassurance and extensive explanation of what to expect. I am forever grateful to him and his stuff, whom were also very kind. They reached out to me both times after my surgery to see how I was doing and I am thankful. I would highly recommend Dr. Ticho if you’re looking for a physician to help with your optical needs."- T.F. / Facebook / Mar 29, 2021

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 type 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
