Trifocal Lens

by | Apr 30, 2021 | Medical

Helm Vision Group has been one of the premiere destinations for eye care in Santa Clarita for 18 years. With over 100 years of combined experience amongst the team, Helm Vision Group has established itself as a prominent name in eye healthcare and treatment, and continues to do so through their two locations in Santa Clarita and Palmdale.
One of the most exciting experiences for Dr. Craig Helm has been his introduction of trifocals lens implants to the Santa Clarita Valley. The PanOptix lens is the one and only trifocal lens implant approved for use in the United States. This trifocal lens, in much the same way as a bifocal, offers multiple fields of vision but offers a significant advantage over bifocals: trifocals feature an “intermediate” range of viewing for those who work constantly with computers or complete tasks at an arm’s length. This intermediate region of the lenses allows for more precise vision acuity from a distance of 18 to 24 inches away, and is a significant benefit for both at-home and work activities. Additionally, trifocals are increasingly beneficial for those who suffer from presbyopia, also known as the age-related loss of the eyes’ ability to focus on objects.
Bringing the latest lens implant technology to the Santa Clarita Valley has been a significant goal of Dr. Helm’s since 2001, and after several years of development and testing, both in Europe and in the United States, the FDA has finally approved the lens for use.
“This lens implant is the best in the world for restoring a patient to natural vision with the ability to see long distance, read and work on the computer at an intermediate distance, ” Dr. Helm shares when asked about his exciting endeavor. “We have had great results so far and look forward to offering this lens to all who would benefit from it!”
Alongside the availability of the PanOptix trifocal lens implant, Dr. Helm’s office offers a wide variety of services and treatments, including eye exams, contact lens fittings, LASIK surgery, cornea transplants, and other complex ophthalmic surgeries. They also feature an optical store for those interested in purchasing new frames and lenses once the time comes.
You can find Helm Vision Group at 27420 Tourney Road, Suite 100 in Valencia.
