Lifestyle Lens Options
At CorrectVision Laser Institute we offer multiple lens options to ensure your cataract surgery outcomes fit your lifestyle:
- Multifocal lenses (example: PANOPTIX®) provide the option to see objects clearly at multiple distances without glasses—near, far and in-between. This may reduce or eliminate your need for glasses after surgery.
- Extended range of vision lenses (example: TECNIS Symfony®) cutting-edge optics allow you the sharpest continuous vision across ALL ranges of vision – near, intermediate and far – while maintaining high image contrast. This may reduce or eliminate your need for glasses after surgery.
- Toric lenses provide improved distance vision for patients with moderate amounts of astigmatism. Some of the Multifocal and Extended Range lenses can also correct astigmatism.
Trifocal IOL: A Full Range of Vision with One Lens
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved the first and only trifocal lens in the U.S. The Alcon AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal intraocular lens (IOL) is now a replacement lens option for cataract surgery patients. CorrectVision Laser Institute is proud to be the first practice in South Florida to implant this revolutionary lens for our patients.
Dr. Marc Bosem has created a video to discuss the PanOptix lens. The video features his very first south Florida PanOptix patient and includes part of her actual surgery. This was a history-making procedure for our South Florida team!
PanOptix is clinically shown to deliver an exceptional combination of near, intermediate and distance vision while significantly reducing the need for glasses after surgery. Most patients who choose this lens are able to read text messages on their smart phones, work on a computer and even drive without the need for glasses. This is due, in part, to ENLIGHTEN®Optical Technology, a proprietary design that optimizes intermediate vision without compromising near and distance vision.

This lens has been available internationally for several years. The U.S. ophthalmologic community is very excited to now have this option for patients in our country. Dr. Bosem knew this could be a life-changing lens for his cataract patients, so he was quick to implement this lens option in our practice.
Cataracts have a way of limiting your activities because they cause your vision to become blurry, cloudy and yellowed. In addition, as we grow older, our eye lenses naturally start to lose flexibility. This is called presbyopia and it is the reason many people over age 40 need reading glasses. Patients who live active lives may choose to upgrade their cataract surgery by choosing this trifocal lens, rather than a monofocal lens that only offers clear vision for one distance (typically far away vision). The PanOptix lens can also provide astigmatism correction!

TECNIS Symfony® IOL
Solution for Cataracts & Presbyopia
CorrectVision Laser Institute is proud to offer our cataract patients who need reading glasses (presbyopia) the first and only presbyopia-correcting Intraocular Lens (IOL) option with extended depth of focus: the TECNIS Symfony Extended Range of Vision IOL.
During cataract surgery in South Florida, the cloudy lens is removed and replaced with an artificial IOL. There are various types of IOLs that offer different levels of vision after surgery: monofocal (one distance only), multifocal (multiple distances) and Toric (for patients with astigmatism). The FDA-approved Symfony IOL is one more option that we offer for patients who desire a more broad range of vision, including up close reading.
The doctors and staff here are simply the best. The doctors are eminently qualified and remarkably skilled, and they afford you as much time as you need. They care, and it shows. Don’t go anywhere else.
