Cataract Surgery with Crystalens and Trulign. See Distance, Up Close, and Everything in the Middle.
Dr. Ahad Mahootchi has been implanting Crystalens® since 2004. He was the first Certified Crystalens® surgeon in the North Tampa/East Pasco area. In May 2008, Bausch and Lomb named The Eye Clinic of Florida one of only 100 Crystalens Centers of Excellence in the country.
Experience counts with specialty lenses. Call us for a consultation.
No one has lower Crystalens prices in Florida. The experience at our clinic is often $1000 less than elsewhere.
Crystalens now comes with astigmatism correction (called Trulign) at no added charge at The Eye Clinic of Florida. Now patients can have their cataract, distance vision, astigmatism and need for bifocals treated all with one procedure.
Looking to lessen your need for reading and distance glasses? For those wanting to see in the distance, up close, and everything in the middle, nothing compares to Crystalens® in our opinion. Crystalens® is a replacement for the cataractous human lens or a mis-powered human lens. Crystalens® lens implants move and focus at different distances similar to the way the human natural lens works when we are younger. This allows one to focus at different focal lengths or distances without the aid of glasses or bifocals.
For those desiring a surgical option or an option at the time of cataract surgery, Monovision and Multifocals are the other cataract treatment options. Monovision isn’t appropriate for those who haven’t lived their life in monovision (in contacts) prior to surgery. Loss of depth perception is common. Multifocals work for some, but again, you should prove (prior to surgery) that the patient likes multifocal vision with multifocal contacts. Multifocals work by splitting light. Halos around lights are very common and very bothersome to some people. Some are not bothered with time. Yet, some never get past it. Also, intermediate distance vision (like computer distance) tends not to be good. ReZoom, Technis Multifocals and Restor lenses are multifocal lenses.
Dr. Mahootchi has never met an eye surgeon who implants multifocals that has actually worn a multifocal contact lens. That might change their minds!
Loss of depth perception, loss of contrast and intermediate distance vision issues are not issues with Crystalens® implants. But Crystalens® requires extraordinary effort on the part of the surgeon and staff. We are proud of our results and invite you to learn more about this technology. Eye surgery does have risks.
