Lens Options

With the current advancements in technology and Dr. Rosenthal’s expertise, there are many options available for patients which can reduce or eliminate one’s need for glasses.

Variations of Intraocular lenses are listed below:

  • Monofocal Lens- Monofocal lenses are the most commonly used lenses in cataract surgery.
  • Toric Lens- Toric Lenses are used to treat astigmatism. Astigmatism may also be treated through other methods at the time of surgery.
  • Accommodating Lens- Accommodating lenses are designed to “accommodate” like an individual’s natural, crystalline lens. This helps to give individual’s a greater range of vision and helps to reduce or eliminate one’s need for glasses.
  • Multifocal Lens- Multifocal lenses correct an individual’s vision distance and near vision, which can reduce or eliminate an individual’s need for glasses.

Dr. Rosenthal- A Pioneer In IOLs

Dr. Rosenthal has led the field of ophthalmology in innovating and introducing cutting-edge technology for the last four decades. He has the longest continuous experience (over 19 years) of any eye surgeon in the Northeastern United States using multifocal lenses. He was the first surgeon to use them in New York State and the first to use the current “third generation” IOLs in the Northeast. Dr. Rosenthal has also been one of the earliest adopters of Femtosecond laser-assisted cataract surgery, a system which enables him to create a tailored treatment plan which is uniquely customized for each patient.

Dr. Rosenthal has been a leader in the development of minimally invasive cataract surgery. Preferring to avoid the use of needle injections behind the eyes for anesthesia, he developed and patented a non-invasive technique for placing very effective liquid anesthetics on the surface of the eye. This results in a safe, yet pain-free surgical experience. He focuses on micro-incision cataract surgery with Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) that reduce or eliminate the need for glasses after surgery.
