Cataract surgery which replaces the clouded lens in your eye due to cataracts has been around for a long time. This surgery markedly improved your vision but was not able to correct vision problems such as astigmatism or near- and farsightedness, requiring the continued use of glasses post-surgery. The technology around this procedure has improved exponentially in the past few years through the development of replacement lenses inserted in the eye that can also correct for these other vision issues at the same time. Dr. Suzanne Handler, Ophthalmologist, is a leading expert in this field, having presented lectures on the subject at the annual meetings of the American Academy of Ophthalmology and the Academy for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology. She also has published numerous articles in peer-reviewed ophthalmic journals. Using cutting-edge implanted lenses such as the AcrylSof® IQ Vivity®, Alcon Vivity® and PanOptix® intraocular lenses, Dr. Handler can create customized solutions for a wide range of patients, often allowing them to throw away their glasses completely. Dr. Handler’s experience with new technologies also extends to the treatment of dry eyes, going far beyond what over-the-counter drops can offer in terms of lasting relief.
