Cheryl Ladd Enjoys Improved Vision Through PanOptix® Lens
Cheryl Ladd, best known for the iconic hit TV series Charlie’s Angels, recently underwent cataract surgery and received the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Lens, a procedure which is offered by Abrams Eye Institute. Cheryl will be sharing her story through a national campaign to inspire people with cataracts, the most common age-related eye condition, to take charge of their diagnosis, understand their treatment options and reclaim their optimism for life in all its color.
The team at Abrams enjoys success stories shared by its patients, while also being inspired by the stories of others – like Cheryl Ladd – who have had successful surgeries elsewhere that employ the same technology and techniques that can be found right here in our clinics in Southern Nevada.
Cataracts, a cloudiness of the natural lens of the eye that can impair vision, are treated by replacing the lens with an intraocular lens (IOL). PanOptix — the first and only trifocal IOL available in the U.S. — corrects and sharpens vision at near, intermediate, and distance so patients wear glasses less often. 3,4 PanOptix is designed for today’s active lifestyles, from viewing mobile devices and computer screens to high-quality distance vision in a range of lighting conditions.
More than 25 million Americans suffer from cataracts. That number is poised to jump to 38.5 million by 2032 and to 45.6 million by 2050. 1 Studies have shown that because cataracts can make simple, day-to-day tasks harder, many feel annoyed, frustrated, and old. However, cataract surgery does have emotional benefits, with patients of Abrams Eye Institute reporting being happier and more satisfied post-surgery.

The AcrySof IQ PanOptix Trifocal IOL is a type of multifocal IOL used to focus images clearly onto the back of your eye (retina) to allow clear vision after the cataract removal. In addition, the center of the AcrySof IQ PanOptix Trifocal IOL allows for better near (reading) vision and intermediate (computer work) vision versus what a monofocal lens would provide. Learn more about the partnership, and PanOptix, through its manufacturer’s website.
