Last month, Dr. Ahad Mahootchi of The Eye Clinic of Florida was selected by Bausch and Lomb to be one of the first eye surgeons nationally to implant the new Trulign Lens. This month, his patients are already seeing the benefits.
The new Trulign lens is used during cataract surgery. It’s the first lens replacement to treat astigmatism as well as the need for reading glasses. In a single procedure, the lens treats cataract, astigmatism,and the dependency on reading glasses that many have after cataract surgery.
“The patients from last month saw well right after the surgery and continue to praise the lens” said Tampa area eye surgeon Dr. Mahootchi. The Trulign lens is the astigmatism correcting version of the popular Crystalens implant. 1 in 5 patients have enough astigmatism to blur their vision. ” The lens has been so popular that most of the doctor’s surgeries have been with either Crystalens or Trulign in the last several weeks.
Dr. Mahootchi explained, “Before, many of these patients paid more for laser during or after their cataract surgery. Now, more people can “see young again” without it. They just don’t need laser to get the best results. They see well in the distance, up close and everything in between. They save money and see better.”
The Eye Clinic of Florida does not charge more for the new Trulign than the Crystalens. The Eye Clinic of Florida is in Zephyrhills, FL and serves patients from all over the Tampa Bay area.
