Premium IOLs

Description

Dr. Sheth explains premium intraocular lenses, which are implants that replace the crystalline lens of the eye during cataract surgery. Premium IOLs can reduce or eliminate your need for glasses after cataract surgery, something traditional IOLs don't offer. Sheth-Horsley Eye Center provides both types of IOLs, and we can sit down with you to discuss which option is best to meet your vision goals.
