PanOptix Trifocal IOL

At Mississippi Vision, we’re proud to offer our cataract patients the innovative PanOptix trifocal IOL. The PanOptix trifocal IOL is the first trifocal IOL to become FDA approved.

What Is The PanOptix Trifocal IOL, And How Is It Different Than Other IOLs?

A trifocal lens is a revolutionary type of IOL. It’s like a multifocal IOL in that it also has rings forming various sections. But unlike multifocal IOLs, trifocals have alternating sections. These rings are set for three types of vision: near, far and intermediate.

Before the PanOptix trifocal IOL, the intermediate distance wasn’t addressed by artificial lenses. Thanks to the trifocal IOL, patients see with clear, complete focus at all distances. This means you experience sharp eyesight at near, far, and intermediate distances. For most, it also means no longer needing glasses to see.

Even before becoming FDA approved, trifocal IOLs were widely used across Europe. Mississippi Vision is part of the first group of eye care practices in the country and Mississippi to offer the PanOptix trifocal IOL to patients for cataract surgery.

Our ophthalmologists use the best trifocal IOL available on the U.S. market: the AcrySof IQ PanOptix IOL. The AcrySof IQ PanOptix IOL was specially crafted with the wearer in mind. This means it delivers a full range of effortless vision at any distance, especially those that can be completed at arm’s length. It also means relying less on glasses, no matter what the task may be.

What’s Unique About The PanOptix Trifocal IOL?

The PanOptix trifocal IOL is groundbreaking because it:

  • Protects eyes from the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays and helps filter out blue light from screens
  • Eliminates or significantly reduces the need for glasses after cataract surgery
  • According to a clinical study with 123 respondents, 80.5% of people with the PanOptix Lens said they hadn’t used their glasses at all within the past week to see better
  • Delivers high-definition vision that is brighter all around, resulting in more vivid colors
  • Enhances vision quality by correcting and sharpening vision to reduce dependence on glasses
  • Delivers excellent vision in all lighting conditions including low light, bright light, dim light, daylight, and bright light
  • Unlike other premium lens options, the PanOptix trifocal IOL delivers crystal clear vision without blurry zones, while also reducing glare

PanOptix Trifocal FAQ

Yes, the PanOptix trifocal IOL addresses both astigmatism and presbyopia. PanOptix lenses are available with a toric option to fix the visual distortion caused by astigmatism. Astigmatism occurs when the lens or the cornea is curved too steeply in one direction than in the other. Sufferers of astigmatism and presbyopia will find they don’t need to wear glasses as much with the PanOptix trifocal IOL.

The PanOptix trifocal IOL is also one of the top presbyopia-correcting IOLs in over 70 countries. More than 99% of PanOptix trifocal IOL users say they would choose the same lens again, and 98% of wearers would recommend it to friends and family. 

The PanOptix trifocal IOL is designed to last a lifetime, so you shouldn’t ever need to replace it. Like any IOL, there are risks involved. Talk to your eye doctor at Mississippi Vision to make sure you have the best understanding of what to expect with the PanOptix trifocal IOL or any other artificial lens.

There are various types of IOLs, so it’s important to know what all your options are. Some IOLs only let you see at one distance and mean you need to wear reading glasses to compensate.

Others like trifocal lenses let you see near, intermediate, and far distances in focus. Our cataract surgeons in Flowood, MS can discuss which IOL is best for you during a cataract screening.

When choosing an IOL, take your environment and lifestyle needs into account, like whether you want to wear glasses after cataract surgery. 

The PanOptix trifocal IOL is a premium lens that’s designed for anyone that wants to see clearly, no matter what distance they are at. In particular, the PanOptix trifocal IOL excels for tasks that are performed at a relaxed arm’s length. This is about 60 centimeters away for most people.

This includes tasks like:

  • Completing work on the computer
  • Putting on makeup in the mirror
  • Playing board games
  • Seeing sheet music while playing a musical instrument
  • Reading a menu in your favorite restaurant

These are all tasks where you need to be able to see both distance and details, which the PanOptix trifocal IOL delivers. The reason for this is the proprietary ENLIGHTEN Optical Technology that the PanOptix trifocal is engineered with. It’s this proprietary technology that allows wearers to have crystal clear intermediate vision without compromising near or distance vision.

The PanOptix trifocal IOL is the only lens design that allows for a 40 centimeter (near) and 60 centimeters (intermediate) focal point without sacrificing any distance vision.

The PanOptix trifocal IOL means you can see clearly, no matter what kind of task you’re completing. The premium lens technology is designed to make it easy to see clearly while you:

  • Read a book or menu
  • Use a cellphone
  • Sew
  • Drive
  • Watch the big game on TV with your friends
  • Attend concerts or your favorite sporting events
  • Use your computer for work and pleasure
