The Eye MDs: First to use New Implant
Dr. George, Dr. Strickler, and Dr. Lazer of the EyeMDs were recently selected as one of the first doctors in the country to use the newest implant for cataract surgery.  Only 75 of the best eye surgery practices in America were selected by Bausch and Lomb to debut their newest lens, the Crystalens platform lens called TRULIGN Toric.   This lens not only corrects distance and near vision like the previous Crystalens AO implant, but it also corrects pre-existing astigmatism.  
 
The TRULIGN Toric lens is designed for seniors with active lifestyles.  Unlike a standard cataract replacement lens, the TRULIGN Toric lens allows the eye to focus and maintain clarity over a broad range of vision, while correcting for the patient’s astigmatism. The lens also delivers superior clarity of vision, even in low-light or nighttime conditions.
 
The EyeMDs offer a full range of surgical vision correction procedures and work closely with each patient to determine the option that might be best for them.  Every patient is also informed about what to expect before, during and after a surgical procedure.  Each of the 3 surgeons have performed over 10,000 surgical procedures. 
 
“The TRULIGN Toric lens both reduces the negative impact of pre-existing astigmatism on postoperative vision and also imparts excellent distance and intermediate vision and functional near vision, all through a single surgical procedure,” said Dr. George. “The result is a reduced need for our patients to wear glasses for many activities following cataract surgery... We are maximizing the patient's ablilty to function without glasses," 
 
“By offering the TRULIGN Toric lens, we have increased the choices that our cataract patients can consider that allow them to not only replace their clouded lens, but significantly enhance their overall vision,” added Dr. Strickler. 
 
Dr Lazer says "This is an exciting opportunity for our practice to bring world class medical technology to the Mid-Ohio Valley.  We are very thankful to receive recognition from Bausch and Lomb that we are providing the highest quality of eye surgery available in the country.  We encourage anyone who has been diagnosed with a cataract to contact us and see if they are a candidate for this new lens implant."
 

A cataract is a clouding of the normally clear lens in the eye.  It is the leading cause of blindness in the world.  According to the National Eye Institute, cataract surgery is one of the safest, most common and effective surgical procedures.  Worldwide, over 20 million cataract surgeries are performed annually. Cataract surgery is a simple procedure during which the natural lens in the patient's eye is surgically replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL). The TRULIGN Toric is an intraocular lens designed to not only replace the patient’s clouded lens but also to provide them with improved visual acuity.
