Fixing cataracts and the inability to see up close
Spinak Medical Eye Center’s eye surgeons provide cataract surgery for patients in Rockland, Westchester, Orange and Bergen Counties. By using Premium IOLs, Dr. Chang or Dr. Spinak can correct your cataract and presbyopia.
A patient with a presbyopia correcting IOL could potentially engage in a variety of activities such as seeing street signs, looking at a computer screen, and reading a book without needing glasses.
Multifocal and accommodative premium intraocular lenses or IOLs
- Multifocal IOL – A multifocal IOL has rings of different corrective power built into the lens. These rings help keep light and images from all distances in focus. Two of the most commonly used multifocal IOLs are the Acrysof ReSTOR and the Tecnis Multifocal.
- Accommodative IOL – An accommodative IOL has flex points or hinges to allow the lens to move in coordination with the muscles of the eye to provide clear vision at all distances. The most common type of accommodative IOL is the Crystalens HD.
Both types of premium IOLs give patients clear vision at distance, intermediate, and near. This advanced technology is vastly increasing the freedom from glasses for cataract patients.
Glasses may still be needed even with a presbyopia correcting premium IOL
A patient with a presbyopia correcting premium IOL is expected to see most things at all distances clearly, but may still need glasses or contact lenses depending on the specific task or lighting conditions.

Cataract surgery is a medical necessity. Health insurances will not, however, pay an additional amount for this premium implant and the increased expenses associated with the procedure.

Meet with Dr. Chang and Dr. Spinak to discuss your personal situation. During the office visit, you are encouraged to bring a family member or friend to the consultation. Ask questions and feel free to take notes.
