Marc Michelson, M.D., a Birmingham Cataract and Refractive Surgeon, performed Birmingham’s first trifocal lens implant using the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Presbyopia-Correcting Intraocular Lens (IOL) on Monday, September 16, 2019.
BIRMINGHAM, AL, September 19, 2019 /24-7PressRelease/ — Dr. Michelson performed this ground-breaking surgery today at the Birmingham Outpatient Care Center. The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) is the first FDA approved trifocal lens implant for vision correction during cataract surgery. The newly approved AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) represents a growing technological innovation in cataract surgery. The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Trifocal Intraocular Lens allows patients to have a continuous range of vision from distance to near without compromising intermediate vision. This innovation means that patients can see objects at distance, intermediate, and near ranges without glasses.
“The safety and outcomes of cataract surgery have dramatically improved with the technological advances in instrumentation and techniques that we can readily deliver a comfortable, quick physical and visual recovery. However current multifocal lenses are designed for distance and either near or intermediate vision, but not both. I predict that the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) implant technology with its continuous range of vision will drive patient demand for more complete, comfortable and convenient vision correction options as part of patient cataract surgery options. Another advantage of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) is that we now offer a full range of clear vision to a younger more active age group. Based on the excellent outcomes of the European experience with PanOptix™ since 2015, I see The AcrySof® IQ PanOptix™ Trifocal Intraocular Lens (IOL) as a considerable advancement in delivering to a younger more active age group the promise of a continuous full range – distance, intermediate, and near – of clear vision without eyeglasses after cataract surgery. Thus, we are providing cataract surgery not only for the growing aging population, but also for the younger working patients in need of a complete, convenient glasses free lifestyle after cataract surgery,” explained Dr. Michelson.
