What Are Premium Lenses?
Premium lenses are a type of artificial lens that is used to replace the clouded natural lens in the eye that we call a cataract. These artificial lenses are chosen in advance with your surgeon and will be implanted during your cataract surgery at Eye Specialists of Napa Valley. Premium lenses can address other eye conditions at the same time, including nearsightedness , farsightedness, presbyopia, astigmatism, and more. At our Napa, CA ophthalmology office, we offer light-adjustable lenses, multifocal & EDOF lenses, toric lenses, as well as the Crystalens as potential options for our patients.

"Dr Bosetti preformed Cataract surgery on both my eyes recently. I am a retired architect and my vision became cloudy to the point I had trouble driving at night because of the glare and was easily blinded by contrasting bright sunlight and deep shadow. Dr Bosetti diagnosed cataracts in both eyes and recommended lens transplants. He was thorough in testing, clearly answered all questions. The surgery was a overwhelming success. I highly recommend him . "- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 22, 2019

- Toric Lens: These come in many forms and are a great way to correct astigmatism.
- Accommodative Lens: Lenses, like the Crystalens, shift and adjust as the eye moves, providing a focus for multiple distances.
- Blended Vision: Utilizing a personalized combination of monofocal lenses can decrease your dependence on glasses while minimizing cost.
