Enjoy the Benefits of Clear
Do you or someone you know have
cataracts? New flexible and injectable intraocular lenses have revolutionized the science of vision correction at cataract surgery. These new microscopic lenses,
miniature miracles no bigger than the width of a pencil, can be permanently implanted inside the eye through
a clear corneal microincision, an opening smaller than 2.5 millimeters.
The Revolutionary, Flexible Intraocular Lens Implant
Because the lens is flexible it can be implanted
without sutures, without injection anesthetics and without the need for bandaging the eye. The
lens will not wear out or require replacement and once removed, the cataract cannot return.
baby boomers are aging. With age comes poor vision due to cataracts. It all starts at the age
of forty when the need for reading glasses occurs, a condition known as presbyopia.
Further clouding of the natural eye lens decreases the contrast of images and blurs
vision. For the millions of Americans who undergo cataract surgery annually, there is new hope
for the aging eye. An innovative, implantable intraocular lens (IOL), which can replace the
aging eye's cataract, can improve vision better than ever before. This artificial lens, known
as the Tecnis Z-9000, manufactured by Pfizer, Inc.
(formally Pharmacia Corporation, Bedminster, NJ) received FDA approval for use by
ophthalmologists in the US last year.
A microscopic optical device about the size of the end of a pencil, it is permanently
implanted inside the eye in a brief, outpatient procedure at the time of cataract removal.
What makes this lens different is it's ability to improve the contrast of images, particularly
at night, according to Robert M. Kershner, M.D., F.A.C.S.
of the Eye Laser Center in Tucson, Arizona, the author of a study to be published in
the Journal of Cataract and Refractive Surgery, The Tecnis IOL is an advance
over existing technology due to its unique, modified, aspheric surface which restores vision
to levels previously only seen in youth.
study, published in the August 21, 2002 issue of the Journal of the
American Medical Association (JAMA), found that patients
with cataracts who underwent cataract surgery
and intraocular lens implantation had
half the rate of automobile accidents during
