Whether you need cataract surgery or you are considering refractive lens exchange (RLE) for your presbyopia, at Eye Center of La Jolla, Dr. Shervin Alborzian offers various intraocular lens options. Call (858) 457-2220 to learn more about the IOL options available.
Each type of intraocular lens (IOL) has different features. Some intraocular lenses are best for treating cataracts, other IOLs work well for presbyopia treatment.
To best meet your specific needs, Dr. Alborzian will select the lens best suited for your unique vision correction. Below are some of the IOLs Dr. Alborzian uses for his San Diego-area patients.
nanoFLEX™ Collamer Aspheric Single-Piece IOL
TECNIS® Multifocal Lens Implant
Designed to give patients back their youthful vision, the TECNIS® Multifocal Lens Implant provides high-quality vision at any distance, and in any light condition—even in low light. It delivers results superior to those of a standard multifocal lens and offers an excellent chance to become spectacle-independent. It's also the lens 94% of patients would choose again.
The Crystalens™ IOL is the only accommodative lens available in the United States that is designed to provide a continuous range of vision for distance, intermediate, near and everything in between. The Crystalens™ intraocular lens is designed to move within the eye using the same muscle as your natural lens. This enables the eye to automatically focus to provide distance, intermediate and near vision and thus it reduces your need for glasses or contact lenses.
ReSTOR® IOL provides a full range of vision, decreasing the dependency on reading glasses or bifocals. The revolutionary lens technology designed to allow patients to see at all distances without bifocals or reading glasses, the ReSTOR IOL, delivers a high level of glasses-free vision for cataract patients.
ReSTOR® IOL gives cataract patients a clinically proven way of leaving glasses behind, because it is designed with apodized diffractive technology. Apodization is a gradual reduction or blending of the diffractive step heights. The apodized diffractive optic is designed to improve image quality while minimizing visual disturbances. The result is an increased range of quality vision.

LASIK or Lasik (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis) - Eye Care & Vision Glossary Excerpt
LASIK or Lasik (Laser-Assisted in situ Keratomileusis), commonly referred to as laser eye surgery, is a type of refractive surgery for the
correction of myopia, hyperopia, and astigmatism. The LASIK surgery is performed by an ophthalmologist who uses a laser or microkeratome to
reshape the eye's cornea in order to improve visual acuity. For most patients, LASIK provides a permanent alternative to eyeglasses or contact
LASIK is most similar to another surgical corrective procedure, photorefractive keratectomy (PRK), and both represent advances over radial
keratotomy in the surgical treatment of refractive errors of vision. For patients with moderate to high myopia or thin corneas which cannot be
treated with LASIK and PRK, the phakic intraocular lens is an alternative.
Since 1991, there have been further developments such as faster lasers, larger spot areas, bladeless flap incisions, intraoperative corneal
pachymetry and "wavefront-optimized" and "wavefront-guided" techniques. However, use of the excimer laser risks damage to the retina and optic
nerve. The goal of refractive surgery is to avoid permanently weakening the cornea with incisions and to deliver less energy to the surrounding
The iLASIK Procedure is the result of a decade's worth of technical refinement; it combines all of the most advanced all-laser LASIK technology in
one efficient LASIK procedure ... It simply doesn't get any better, so now's the time.
