Darrell Pickard, MD

We are so excited to provide this new technology to our patients throughout Oklahoma. The FDA clinical results were outstanding!

Darrell J. Pickard, MD, board-certified ophthalmologist and cataract surgeon at Precision Vision in Midwest City, Oklahoma is now offering cataract patients the new Alcon Acrysof IQ PanOptix Trifocal IOL. This implant lens allows for a new level of correction for immediate, near and distance vision, while substantially reducing the need for glasses. The IOL is designed for our modern lifestyles- from viewing mobile devices and computers up close to high-quality distance vision in a wide range of light settings.

“We are so excited to provide this new technology to our patients throughout Oklahoma. The FDA clinical results were outstanding!” said Dr. Pickard.

The FDA approval was based on the results from a study of 12 investigational sites in the United States. The results also showed a high patient satisfaction with more than 99% of PanOptix patients saying they would choose the same lens again.

The PanOptix Trifocal IOL Highlights

  • First FDA approved trifocal IOL – 8/27/19
  • Excellent distance, intermediate and near visual acuity – 120 cm, 60 cm, 40 cm
  • 50% light for distance, the other 50% split for near and intermediate
  • Fewer diffractive rings so less glare/halo (2.4%)
  • 99%+ of patients said they would choose the same lens again in FDA trial
  • Available in spherical and toric versions immediately

“We believe that our patients will greatly benefit from this new and improved IOL option for their vision following cataract surgery,” said Dr. Pickard.

Precision Vision partners with multiple area optometrists and their patients in order to provide the best overall experience for obtaining premium IOLs such as the PanOptix Trifocal IOL.
