The TRULIGN is an intraocular lens implant used to replace the natural lens of the eye following the removal of a cataract. Regional Eye Associates are proud to offer our patients the latest advancements in intraocular lens technology and are pleased to offer TRULIGN at our offices serving the Morgantown, Fairmont, Bridgeport, Waynesburg and Petersburg regions.
The TRULIGN is considered to be the new direction for lens replacements. It is true that standard monofocal IOLs deliver improved vision, but this improved vision is set at just one distance: usually far. As a result, after cataract surgery, many patients often need to wear glasses for near and intermediate vision; sometimes glasses are necessary even if they weren't required prior to surgery.
But because the TRULIGN Toric IOL is a premium IOL that treats not only your cataracts but any post-operative astigmatism as well, it can result in much greater freedom from glasses, ultimately providing you with a broader range of vision. The TRULIGN lens truly is the future of lens replacement.
Some of the main benefits of TRULIGN include:
According to clinical results, 99.2% of all patients reported no significant visual disturbances with the TRULIGN Toric IOL.
*As with any surgical procedure there are risks along with benefits. It is important to discuss your surgical procedure with your surgeon to fully understand the risks and benefits.
