About Cataract Lens Options
With nearly three million patients being diagnosed with cataracts every year, cataract surgery has become a highly perfected procedure within the eye health field. At The Eye Center of Southern Indiana, our team performs both traditional and cataract surgery, depending on your needs. The goal of this treatment is the same for both techniques: to remove the cataract lens of the eye and replace it with an artificial intraocular lens (IOL). There are many different types of IOLs offered, and we will help you choose the best lens type to suit your unique vision needs and lifestyle. If you've been diagnosed with cataracts or have noticed distinctly cloudier vision, reach out to our team in Bloomington, IN today. Our leading ophthalmologist, R. Daniel Grossman, M.D., is one of the leading cataract surgeons in the country and uses his expertise to help cataract patients achieve clearer sight and improved eye health.
Types of intraocular lenses (IOLs)
IOLs are inserted into the eye after the diseased cataract lens has been removed. Prior to choosing the appropriate lens type for you, a member of our team will assess your vision needs. In many cases, receiving cataract surgery and a new lens can enhance your vision, and many patients forego the use of glasses and contacts following cataract surgery. At The Eye Center of Southern Indian, our team provides a number of IOL options, such as:
- Monofocal IOLs let individuals view objects at a distance.
- Multifocal IOLs let patients see objects up close, as well as middle and far distances.
- Toric IOLs improve vision at a distance for those with severe astigmatism.
"My husband had a chalazion removed from his lower eye lid, and we had a great experience! Everyone was so friendly, from the receptionist out front to Dr. Andrew Huck! It was a quick process, and Dr. Huck walked us through each step of the procedure. He made us feel so comfortable and cared for. Thank you for all you guys do!!"- E.W. / Yelp / Oct 06, 2021
"They are very thorough in caring for new patients. They are conscious of covid 19 protocols. The practice has both ophthalmologist as well as optometrists. In case you need eye surgery, the surgery center is on the lower level. As a new patient I appreciate what they have to offer for eye care."- M.H. / Yelp / Mar 25, 2021

"Outstanding surgeon for my lasik! The eye center of southern Indiana is a top notch facility - I chose it over anything in the Indianapolis area because it's the best. "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Jun 02, 2017
"I just had my LASIK eye surgery done with Dr. Mackey at the Eye Center yesterday. I recommend it highly, and wish I had done it sooner. The staff was as sweet as can be, and I felt so comfortable the entire time. I would really like to thank Dr.Mackey, Dr Gray and Melissa for taking such good care of me. There was virtually no wait times which cut down on my nerves substantially. The procedure itself was completely painless and was over before I knew it. I’m super pleased with my experience:)"- C.E. / Yelp / Dec 04, 2015
