Laser Cataract Experience

PanOptix Intraocular
Lens

In September of 2019, Dr. Bryan Monson was selected to be the first surgeon in the area, and among the first in the nation, to place a new type of intraocular lens (IOL) implant capable of restoring to only distance, but also intermediate and near vision in patients dealing with “over 40 vision” or cataracts. People have been coming across the United States to have their lenses replaced in Logan.

This new lens is comprised of the newest technology, created to imitate the full vision range of youth. Earlier lens implants were designed to provide patients undergoing cataract surgery one range of vision (usually distance) leaving patients to rely on glasses for the rest.

Trifocal Vision Benefits

The PanOptix lens is the first and only trifocal lens currently available in the US to provide clear distance, near and intermediate vision.

Dr. Monson is able to combine the trifocal vision benefits of the Alcon PanOptix Lens with new, safer more precise, laser cataract surgery. Laser cataract surgery replaces the surgical blade and hand-held equipment used in traditional cataract surgery with a remarkably precise, computer-guided laser.
This combination of multifocal lens implants and improved procedure is opening a new era of safety and results for patients in need of cataract surgery.

Vivity Intraocular Lens

Monson Vision was selected to be among the first practices across the nation to offer Alcon’s Vivity Intraocular Lens.

The AcrySof™ IQ Vivity™ IOLs are artificial lenses that are surgically implanted in the eye of an adult patient to correct their vision after their lenses were removed due to cataracts. The procedure enables patients to have higher quality distance in their sight, close range enhancements, and everything in-between to be the most effective additional option for cataract patients.

Dr. Bryan Monson is one of the first to conduct this extended range of vision IOL surgery that uses a non-diffractive design called X-WAVE™ which is a technology that reduces a cataract patient’s dependency on contacts and glasses.

Light Adjustable Lens

RxSight Light Adjustable Lenses are the first and only lens implant in which the prescription can be fine-tuned and customized after implantation in the eye, using an office-based UV light source called a Light Delivery Device (LLD) available here at Monson Vision. 

The Light Adjustable Lens conveys the best visual outcomes that non-adjustable IOLs cannot match.

Monson Vision is among the first in the country and the only practice in the region to offer this kind of technology for cataract patients. 

How Will Removing the Cataract Affect My Vision?

The goal of cataract removal surgery is to correct the decreased vision that was caused by the cataract. During the surgery, the Ophthalmologist (eye surgeon) removes the cataract and puts in a new artificial lens called an intraocular lens or IOL. Cataract surgery will not correct other causes of decreased vision, such as glaucoma, diabetes, or age-related macular degeneration. Most people still need to wear glasses or contact lens after cataract surgery for either near and/or distance vision and astigmatism.

What is a Cataract and How is It Treated?

The PanOptix lens is the first and only trifocal lens currently available in the US to provide clear distance, near and intermediate vision.

Dr. Monson is able to combine the trifocal vision benefits of the Alcon PanOptix Lens with new, safer more precise, laser cataract surgery. Laser cataract surgery replaces the surgical blade and hand-held equipment used in traditional cataract surgery with a remarkably precise, computer-guided laser.
This combination of multifocal lens implants and improved procedure is opening a new era of safety and results for patients in need of cataract surgery.

Make Treating Your Glaucoma a Part of Treating Your Cataract

For patients with glaucoma, Dr. Monson may add another step to your laser vision correction that allows your glaucoma to be treated in a completely new way. Cypass and iStent are among the world’s smallest medical implants, yet deliver big results.

Once diagnosed with glaucoma, you and most patients like you will spend the rest of their lives taking one, two or even three different medication drops. Unfortunately, you will need to use these drops every day, which will not only be inconvenient but can also get expensive. Cypass and iStent are designed to reduce or eliminate the need for glaucoma treatment in those with mild or moderate glaucoma and may be placed at the time of your cataract procedure.

It was worth traveling out of state to have it done right! My only regret; I didn't do this sooner!

Laser Cataract

Few centers have technology this advanced.

The Allegretto family of lasers are the fastest and most precise laser systems for vision correction available in the U.S. Wavelight lasers represent a new generation of refractive technology far more recently designed than other laser platforms. They use technology referred to as High Performance Vision Correction, intended to achieve exceptional visual results under all lighting situations, day and night. The laser employs what is called Perfect Pulse Technology® to safely and accurately control every single laser pulse from start to finish. The flexible performance of Allegretto Wavefront Optimized® LASIK technology enables the correction of each individual’s unique refractive errors while preserving the cornea’s natural shape, effectively reducing side effects such as poor night vision, glare and halos.
That’s the precision of correction to gently shape the surface of the cornea with light.
Each laser vision correction procedure is customized for the refraction and corneal curvature of each patient. The focused light isn’t seen or felt, and imparts no burning sensation.
Monson Vision uses the fastest FDA-approved LASIK platform available in the country.
Each “burst” of the Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q 400Hz Laser lasts mere billionths of a second before the laser shifts to its next position-up to 100 times faster than some lasers. A correction of one diopter requires just two seconds of treatment. Which means shorter procedure times with increased accuracy.
After the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser procedure, patients are able to experience corrected vision. The laser offers highly customized cornea reshaping for the best possible results from almost any type of laser vision correction.
Clinical data presented to FDA showed that in a large group of patients, quality of night vision after treatment was better than night vision quality before treatment, with best glasses or contact lenses. This is a first in history.
Eyes make constant involuntary movements, even in LASIK surgery. The WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system includes a closed loop eye tracker that tracks the eye’s location during surgery to make sure that the eye has not moved before delivering the next pulse of laser energy. Eye movements are tracked with each laser pulse.
Perfect Pulse Technology controls every single pulse transmitted by the laser to ensure the accuracy, safety and speed of the procedure. With this monitoring, only every fifth pulse overlaps the previous one, reducing the risks of overheating the cornea. This also adds to the speed, precision and safety offered by the WaveLight® Allegretto Wave® Eye-Q Laser system.
  • More precise than any other femtosecond laser with positional accuracy ~3 microns rather than >6 with other, older femtosecond systems

  • Delivers better results at lower total energy outputs because the laser energy (fluence) is lower and more focused

  • Smart Bed treatment of the VisuMax is extremely sophisticated, helping maintain the perfect, gentle contact pressure optimal for flap creation

  • Curved contact surface employs a curved contact surface when rendering treatment to closely match the curve of the natural cornea

  • Much lower pressure than with all other femto systems and microkeratomes that is usually is accompanied by temporary loss of vision (a few seconds) — creating a better, more comfortable patient experience

  • For the engineers reading this description, the VisuMax delivery system is opto-electronic; all other femto systems use opto-mechanical design. This significant design difference allows greater positional accuracy and puts VisuMax in a class by itself. No other femto laser is capable of the spatial accuracy necessary for ReLeX SMILE.
