Premium Lens Implants

In traditional cataract surgery, patients were implanted with single-focus intraocular lenses that could only correct for either distance or near vision. This resulted in patients needing glasses most of the time.

In contrast, premium intraocular lens (IOL) implants have advanced features that go far beyond those found in basic, single-focus IOLs. Technically advanced IOLs now provide new alternatives for correcting myopia, astigmatism, hyperopia, and presbyopia. These premium IOLs replace the natural lenses in Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE) and Refractive Laser-Assisted Cataract Surgery (ReLACS) procedures and enable patients to have a full range of clear vision after surgery without dependence on glasses and contact lenses. Premium IOLs may also be used to achieve monovision, and they may be used in combination (one type in the non-dominant eye and another in the dominant eye), tailored to an individual patient’s unique vision correction needs.

After you complete a comprehensive eye exam and advanced diagnostic tests with Dr. Herschel, he will work with you personally to determine the best IOL choices for your vision and eye conditions to help you achieve your best possible vision.

Toric IOLs

Toric intraocular lenses are used to treat a wide range of nearsightedness and farsightedness in patients with astigmatism.

Multifocal IOLs

Multifocal intraocular lenses are used for patients (including patients with astigmatism), who want to restore their full range of vision in both eyes, thereby reducing or eliminating the need for glasses and contact lenses. Multifocal IOLs contain concentric rings of different magnifications that enable a wide range of clear vision. The rings help the brain select the right focus automatically. Some period of adjustment is common, and patients adapt at different rates. After this period of adjustment, multifocal IOL patients can see objects clearly at many distances, without glasses or contact lenses.

The rings of multifocal IOLs can create a glare or a halo effect around lights. Over time, the brain can adjust to this effect and minimize its existence. Although multifocal IOLs are a great option for many people, they are not appropriate for everyone. Dr. Herschel will work with you personally to determine whether a multifocal IOL is your best option to achieve your vision correction goals.

Aspheric IOLs

Aspheric intraocular lenses are used to treat a wide range of nearsightedness and farsightedness in patients with spherical aberrations. The natural lens of the eye works together with the cornea as a part of a lens system to focus light precisely at a single point on the retina. As part of the normal aging process, the lens increases in size and rigidity, causing the natural lens curvature to no longer match the corneal curvature. This is spherical aberration, and, beginning in the mid-40s, it results in blurry vision, especially at night. Night symptoms include streaking, glare, starbursts, and halos from light sources like streetlights and car headlights. Aspherical IOLs correct spherical aberrations as well as nearsightedness and farsightedness, resulting in clearer, crisper daytime and nighttime vision and better contrast sensitivity.

Although the aspheric IOL is a great option for many people, it is not appropriate for everyone. Dr. Herschel will work with you personally to determine whether an aspheric IOL is your best option to achieve your vision correction goals.

Those who know choose Herschel LASIK and Cataract Institute

Beautiful office. Amazing and caring staff. Getting my surgery done Saturday and the Doctor and the staff helped choose the right option for me and I didn't feel pushed to commit. One of the only few who commits the patient to a dry eye treatment as per my research. Post-surgery I hope to keep my 5 star rating because I have nothing bad to say!

I recently did my LASIK procedure about 1 week ago and was completely blown away from beginning to end with the SERVICE received from the entire staff at Herschel LASIK. The office is beautifully decorated and the staff was always professional, personable, knowledgeable and friendly. I particularly enjoyed the way that everything was explained clearly before, during and after my procedure and questions were always encouraged and answered. My experience was the best encounter to date with a physician. Excellent doctor + excellent support staff +excellent service = excellent experience and a happy customer. Thank you so much Dr. Herschel, Doris and Francesca.

Great service, sometimes a bit of a wait, but I take a full lobby as a sign of a well recommended doctor. Staff is friendly & quick to answerphones & squeeze me in when I got an eye problem. Would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to get LASIK. Doctor even personally called to check on me the night after my procedure.

I got my LASIK procedure done here. I was apprehensive, mostly because anything to do with my eyes kind of freaked me out.
I went under a free consultation. The nurses/assistants were very nice and they answered any questions I had. Then I met Dr. Herschel and he was very nice and understanding. He explained all that would happen, how everything works, how long recovery will be, everything.
So, I agreed and start the process. I love the fact you always meet with Dr. Herschel at every appointment.
I now have 20/20 vision.
I'd highly recommend going to him for all of your vision needs.

Great surgeon and great staff. Do your research, Dr. Herschel is more than just a LASIK surgeon. He is certified and specializes in all areas of eye surgery so have peace of mind that you are getting one of the best. They use current technology and machines. More so, if your eyes aren’t ready for surgery he has no problem delaying 1-2 weeks until they are 100% good-to-go. He will not risk your health for the sake of money.
