Schedule an Appointment

SARASOTA, Fla. (March 11, 2021) – Center For Sight is now offering cataract patients the ability to experience high-quality vision at both intermediate and far distances with the TECNIS Eyhance™ Intraocular Lens (IOL). The lens, developed by Johnson & Johnson Vision, is a next generation monofocal lens for patients with or without astigmatism.

The Eyhance intraocular lens is the first in the monofocal IOL family that provides patients with superior vision at both intermediate and far distances without glasses. In comparison, all other lenses in the monofocal category allow only for uncorrected vision at a distance or up-close. Data has shown that the Eyhance lens has a low occurrence of halos and glare, making it a strong option for patients concerned about advanced multifocal lens side effects.

Eyhance enables patients to feel confident in completing their everyday tasks with ease such as driving, cooking, desktop computing and walking downstairs or on uneven surfaces. The result is freedom from glasses for all but reading and nearby tasks.

For over 30 years, the world-class surgeons at Center For Sight have set the standard in cataract and lens replacement surgery. Cataracts are a natural part of the aging process and develop slowly, causing cloudy vision, loss of color perception and trouble reading or driving at night. Surgery is performed to remove the clouded lens and replace it with an artificial lens implant, or IOL.

Cataract surgery is an opportunity to turn back time, offering patients the ability to regain the vision of their youth by selecting a premium lens option. These premium IOL options range from decreasing dependency on glasses at all distances to limiting dependency on glasses for either distance or up-close activities.

“We are committed to using the best technology in order to offer our patients unsurpassed visual outcomes,” said David Shoemaker, MD, founder and director of cataract and lens replacement surgery at Center For Sight. “The Eyhance intraocular lens will provide the opportunity for extraordinary intermediate as well as distance vision. Continually evaluating new technology and adding the most innovative and effective tools to our repertoire of products is a key element in helping our patients achieve remarkable vision.”

The TECNIS platform offers the widest portfolio of IOLs, serving patients with diverse vision conditions and lifestyles to equip them with the solutions they need to see effortlessly. The lens portfolio includes a mix of IOLs for cataract patients in need of multifocals, monofocals, extended depth of focus lenses, and lenses for patients with astigmatism.
