Doctors from The Eye Center were honored recently for their use of Tecnis Multifocal IOL lenses for cataract patients.
Columbia, S.C, July 22, 2015 –The Eye Center’s Drs. R. Brian Huff and Matthew T. Clary were recently recognized for leading the charge in helping patients see more clearly following surgery to correct cataracts. Abbott, the maker of the Tecnis Multifocal IOL lenses, honored the pair for being the top implanters in the state of South Carolina during the month of June.
Surgery is a sight-saving proposition for cataract patients who find their worlds becoming increasingly cloudy. When surgeons can correct the condition while improving sight all together, the prospect becomes especially attractive. Courtesy of the cutting-edge technology of the Tecnis Multifocal IOL lens, this prospect is fast becoming possible for many who might have otherwise found their post-surgical days filled with a reliance on reading glasses at the very least.
“Thanks to advances in replacement lens technology surgeons have been able to correct distance vision for years,” Drs. Clary and Huff explained. “The problem for many cataract patients, however, was that correcting vision up close and far away both through replacement lenses following cataract surgery just wasn’t possible. Abbott unlocked the secret with its Multifocal IOL lens, enabling patients, in many cases, to walk away from glasses entirely after cataract surgery is performed.”
Tecnis lenses are corrective implants that are attached to the eye during surgery to remove cataract-damaged natural lenses. These implantable lenses deliver high-quality vision under any light condition, enabling patients to see clearly near and far away. About nine out of 10 patients who receive Tecnis lenses during their cataract surgery find they no longer need glasses.
“It is a tremendous privilege to see the results Tecnis Multifocal IOL lenses deliver to our patients,” the doctors said. “After all, it’s our mission to preserve and improve vision and Tecnis lenses helps us do that in a way that wasn’t feasible in the past.”
