PanOptix® Trifocal Cataract Lens

January 28, 2020

The PanOptix® lens is the first and only trifocal lens available in the United States. It is the latest advancement from the Acrysof® Family of Lenses - the most implanted cataract replacement lenses worldwide. Dr. Doxanas has had great success with these new lenses. They even make a lens for patients with astigmatism. With the PanOptix lens, you can gain increased independence from glasses - even if you have astigmatism.

Why you can take comfort in the AcrySof® PanOptix® lens:

  • The AcrySof® PanOptix® lens comes from Alcon, the world’s leader in lenses for cataract surgery;
  • The Alcon AcrySof® family of lenses is the most widely used brand for cataract surgery;
  • The history of the AcrySof® family of lenses speaks for itself: more than 100 million AcrySof® IOLs have been implanted worldwide;

In a clinical study, 129 patients were asked about their experience with the PanOptix® Lens:

  • 99% of people with the PanOptix® Lens would choose the same lens again
  • 98% of people with the PanOptix® Lens would recommend it to family and friends
  • 80.5% of people with the PanOptix® Lens reported that, within the past week, they never had to wear glasses to see
