Cataracts cause clouding of the natural lens in your eye, which results in blurry, dim vision that worsens over time. An intraocular lens (IOL) implant placed during cataract surgery replaces your eye’s natural lens and restores clear vision. The cataract specialists at Rocky Mountain Eye Center offer cataract surgery with premium IOL implants at their top-rated surgical center in Missoula, Montana.

A cataract causes the normally clear lens of your eye to become cloudy as proteins in the lens clump together. The condition normally affects both eyes. When you have cataracts, it’s a bit like looking through a frosty or fogged window. Cataracts typically worsen over time, making it difficult to read, drive a car (especially at night), or perform other routine daily activities. It’s a common condition that affects about 50 percent of adults by age 80.
The team at Rocky Mountain Eye Center offers premium IOLs, which provide more advanced features than basic, single-vision IOLs. Different IOL features include:
Your expert cataract surgeon at Rocky Mountain Eye Center helps you decide if you’re a good candidate for premium IOLs during your preoperative exam and consultation. If so, they discuss the best type to provide you with the sharpest vision possible. In some cases, they may recommend using a different type of IOL for each eye.
