PanOptix® from Dallas Eye and Ear

Are you suffering from cataracts? Have you thought about PanOptix?

Cataract surgery is the most frequently performed surgery in the US. Cataract surgery can revive the vision you’ve lost due to cataracts.

During cataract surgery with a PanOptix® Lens, Dr. Burk will make a small incision in your clouded lens and replace it with a PanOptix® Lens, which will enhance and clarify your vision.
During cataract surgery, your clouded lens, caused by cataracts, is replaced with a new lens. While a monofocal lens helps you see long distances, with PanOptix®, you can gain a full range of vision and potentially reduce your reliance on eyeglasses.

Schedule your appointment with Dr. Burk today, or call us with any questions about PanOptix.
