Eyhance IOL (Advanced Technology)
Restore What You’ve Been Missing and Live The Life you want to see!
Today most lenses in the monofocal category only correct vision to help patients with cataracts see things at a distance and thus do not improve the intermediate vision that is required for many important daily tasks. TECNIS Eyhance IOL is a next-generation IOL that elevates expectations by providing enhanced intermediate vision. This lens enables most patients to perform certain activities requiring intermediate vision with greater ease, and to engage in activities of personal interest, including favorite hobbies such as cooking and reading a mobile device.
How will eyhance affect my astigmatism?
The Eyhance lens is available in a toric IOL model so that astigmatism can be corrected at the time of cataract surgery.
Will my insurance cover the cost of the eyhance lens?
Unfortunately, Medicare and most other insurances will only pay for cataract surgery with a standard monofocal lens. This means that you need to choose correction for either distance, intermediate, or close-up vision. You will likely be dependent on glasses for other vision needs with the standard monovision lens. If you are interested in a premium lens like Eyhance, your insurance will pay for the procedure, the outpatient facility fee, and the anesthesia fee. You will need to pay out-of-pocket for the special lens.
