Should I Go For A Costly Lens For My Cataract Surgery?

Should I Go For A Costly Lens For My Cataract Surgery?

This is a frequent question in the minds of everyone. The answer again is variable but let me guide you on this matter. When we remove the cataract, we implant a new artificial lens in the eye also called an intraocular lens (IOL).
One thing is certain, if you have good eyesight you can live your life to the fullest. If you have weak eyesight you cannot see or enjoy the wonders of this world. No money can buy you your eyesight. So the lens is an important factor in determining vision.
When it comes to deciding the lens for the eyes the first consideration should be your needs and whether the lens will be able to fulfill your expectations. The cost of the lens should not be considered.
There are different types of lenses, the hydrophobic usually does not get an after-cataract surgery opacity and hence this should be preferred. Of course, this will be more expensive than the hydrophilic variety of lenses. The opacity which may come in the hydrophilic lenses can be removed by laser. The hydrophobic lens is the better variety.

Next is independence from spectacles. If one is interested in ensuring one does not need spectacles, then a multifocal lens is the best IOL. But one drawback is night-time driving is difficult when one has a multifocal lens in the eyes. If there is astigmatism, one should use a toric lens, again this can give monofocal or multifocal forms.
Hence choose the right lens as required by you or as required by your profession.
The most important factor is this is a one-time surgery and the outcome is perfect. No doctor will be keen on changing the lens once it has been placed in the eye during surgery. Hence one should always choose the best lens which fits one’s budget.

Take time out, understand the lens properties, and ask your eye doctor before you go for cataract surgery.
