Dr. James S. Lewis is a highly accomplished Philadelphia cataract surgeon with many years of experience. Over the course of his distinguished career, Dr. Lewis has helped thousands of Philadelphia and Bucks County cataract patients restore youthful, clear vision through cataract surgery.

He incorporates this information into personalized treatment plans that consistently deliver outstanding results for his Philadelphia cataract surgery patients.
Cataract Surgery with Premium Accommodating and Multifocal IOLs
Dr. Lewis performs cataract surgery with premium intraocular lenses (IOLs). IOLs are sophisticated round discs that are implanted in the eye during cataract surgery. The role of IOLs is to replace the cataract-clouded natural lenses of the eyes, which are removed during the surgery. IOLs help focus the light on the retina the part of the eye that transforms light rays into nerve signals. When the light rays are focused properly, the retina can process them properly and send clear images to the brain.
Traditional IOLs allow patients to focus clearly at one distance (far). However, premium IOLs allow patients to focus on objects at multiple distances. The multifocal IOLs (ReZoom and ReSTOR) enable multi-distance vision because they consist of several spherical rings, each of which focuses on a different distance. The accommodating IOL Crystalens enables multi-distance vision by flexing in response to the eye's attempt to focus on objects at various distances. The result is similar to that provided by multifocal IOLs clear near, far and intermediate vision. If you would like to learn whether you are an accommodating IOLs or multifocal IOLs Philadelphia candidate, contact the offices of Dr. James Lewis to schedule a personal consultation.
