One out of every two people over the age of 60 suffer from cataracts. When cataracts progress to the point that they affect vision, it's time to trade in the clouded lens for a crystal clear lens.
Modern cataract surgery involves removing the clouded natural lens and implanting a clear replacement lens. The standard replacement lens is focused for one field of vision, typically distance vision—most patients who receive a standard lens require glasses for reading and other close-up activities.
For some cataract patients, freedom from glasses is important. For them, Associated Eye Care offers a new generation of advanced technology lenses that provide sharper vision with less reliance on reading glasses or bifocals. A Medicare ruling allows beneficiaries to receive partial payment for state-of-the-art advanced technology lenses that correct for vision at all distances. We also offer Toric lenses for patients with astigmatism.
