Do you hate how much you have to depend on glasses? What if there was something better that could reduce your dependence on these and other visual aids?

Did you know you can treat cataracts and simultaneously reduce your dependence on glasses? Every day, more people discover how cataract surgery can improve their vision and lives beyond simply removing their cataracts!

When you get cataract surgery, you’ll have your eye’s natural lens, where cataracts form, removed. In its place, an intraocular lens, or IOL, is permanently implanted to help you see clearly.

The type of IOL you choose can significantly impact your day-to-day life. With a premium IOL, you can see even better than before you had a cataract.

Keep reading to discover 6 ways that premium IOLs will shift how you experience Austin!

1. Better Vision for Seeing Your Grandchildren

When you have a cataract, your vision can be foggy or cloudy. For many people, this makes it hard to recognize faces, even when interacting with loved ones.

When you have cataract surgery and choose a premium lens like the PanOptix IOL or the Light Adjustable Lens, faces and other important details will become crystal clear. Whether you’re watching a movie at home with your grandchildren or taking them to the Austin Zoo to see their favorite animals, premium IOLs allow you to treasure every moment without worrying about your vision.

Instead, you can get the most out of your sight while losing yourself in the moment. Wouldn’t it be nice to spend more time doing what you love and think less about seeing clearly?

2. Easier Planning for Trips

Whether you’re planning a staycation or a last-minute weekend getaway to Corpus Christi, packing is time-consuming enough without considering everything you will need to maintain your vision while traveling.

When you must rely on glasses or contacts at all times to see, you must be sure to bring along items like spare glasses, cases, prescription sunglasses, extra contact lenses, contact cleaning solution, and more. Not only do these take up space in your bag, but they also are vulnerable to damage while in transit.

Choosing a premium IOL means you won’t need to rely on visual aids as much, making packing for a trip that much easier. You can start living with more spontaneity, whether that’s taking an early morning dip while you’re on vacation or simply enjoying a nap without thinking about where you’ll put your glasses.

3. Take More Rewarding Hikes on the Greenbelt

Austin offers many beautiful places to immerse yourself in nature, such as the Barton Creek Greenbelt. However, when your vision is impaired due to cataracts, the sights around you may be a blurry mess that you struggle to comprehend.

Because most premium IOLs can correct nearsightedness, farsightedness, and astigmatism, they allow you to see the waterfalls and wildflowers with breathtaking clarity. If you’re going to go for a hike, this is the way to do it.

Plus, if you want to dip in one of the many swimming holes along the trails, you can do so effortlessly without removing your glasses or contacts. These IOLs provide you with crystal clear vision, whether you’re swimming to cool off or hiking with your grandchildren and showing them a new trail while exploring.

4. More Relaxing Days at Home

When you’re retired, you deserve to relax every chance you can get. That can be difficult, though, when you have both cataracts and refractive errors standing in the way of achieving your optimal vision.

It can feel like your vision is unclear no matter what you do or where you look. Fortunately, you can enjoy your retirement to the fullest with a premium IOL.

From getting lost in a good book to baking something special to spending time in your garden, a premium lens makes it possible for every day to be a great day. All you have to do is relax and enjoy your new vision.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have the kind of vision you’ve only dreamed of enjoying during your golden years? With a premium IOL like the PanOptix IOL, this can be your new reality!

5. Renewed Confidence

Both glasses and cataracts can detract from your confidence. It may feel like two things are out of your control, but that is not the case anymore.

Modern advancements allow you to move past both with a single procedure. Think of how good you’ll feel (and how well you’ll see) after you finally remove your cataracts for good.

You’ll be able to open the door to reduced dependence on visual aids. Whether you’re meeting friends for lunch or hosting a get-together, cataract surgery can be a serious confidence booster.

If you’ve struggled to get around because of impaired vision from cataracts, cataract surgery with a premium IOL will help you regain your autonomy and independence. Thanks to its quick recovery, you’ll be back to the things you love in no time at all with better vision than ever before.

6. Happier Memories Aboard the Lone Star Riverboat

Going for a ride on the Lone Star Riverboat is a must-do for anyone living in or visiting Austin. See the picturesque sights along Lady Bird Lake, with commentary by the captain, on a gorgeous afternoon, or go for an idyllic sunset cruise.

Either way, it’s sure to be a trip to remember. But what you don’t want to look back on and remember is how your vision got in the way of an otherwise perfect day.

After removing your cataracts, it’ll be like a fog has been lifted from your vision. Clear vision is essential for creating memories you’ll look back on and smile about for a long time to come.
