An intraocular lens (IOL) helps restore the vision of cataract patients. During your cataract surgery, Dr. Steven Chander can take measurements to determine the best IOL for you. We offer self-focusing, single-vision, and monofocal IOLs to help patients reduce or eliminate their need for corrective lenses following cataract surgery.
