Your Vision. Your Future.

FDA-approved PanOptix lenses can enhance your vision following cataract surgery. An important study determined that 99% of PanOptix patients reported clearer vision after receiving the lens. This trifocal lens is one of several choices for an Intraocular Lens, which replaces your natural lens during cataract surgery.

The lens you choose matters. While a monofocal lens can help you see far away, the PanOptix® Lens gives you a full range of vision, so that you can immerse in a full range of activities—all while relying less on glasses.1

Who Should Consider a Trifocal IOL?

While all premium IOLs are designed to improve patients’ vision, trifocal lenses (which fall into the category of multifocal/lifestyle IOLs) are crafted to improve patients’ vision at multiple distances. This makes them an ideal fit for patients who lead active lifestyles that involve routinely switching between tasks that require clear close-range vision (think: reading a book or working on a computer) and clear long-range vision (think: jogging or driving a car).

The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL is also available in spherical and toric formats, making it a great fit for patients with astigmatism. Once their eye has healed after surgery, most astigmatism patients will no longer need to rely on glasses. It’s important to note that, in rare cases, a trifocal IOL may end up moving following surgery, resulting in distorted vision. If this occurs, a patient should contact their Swaggle Wootten Eye Institute specialist immediately, as additional surgery may be required.

Understanding Trifocal Lenses

Lens implants restore your vision when cataracts compromise your sight. However, most IOLs are monofocal and don’t change for various distances. PanOptix is a multifocal IOL that improves both near and distance vision in one eye. As a trifocal lens, PanOptix improves near, intermediate and distance vision. For example, intermediate vision tasks include computer work, shaving and applying makeup, while near vision affects writing, reading and sewing. 

The PanOptix Trifocal Lens improves vision at three distances, a clear advantage over the more common monofocal lenses. Talk to our cataract surgeons in Arizona about the benefits of improved sight and possible independence from glasses. These lenses bend the light coming in from the eye to reduce presbyopia, which makes it hard to read or perform close-up tasks as part of the aging process. They can also reduce your dependence on readers. 

PanOptix trifocal lenses have produced promising results in most patients. However, like all procedures, they present some risks. For example, some patients reported the following side effects:

  • Haloes around lights
  • Acuity (focus) issues
  • Visual disturbances
