Cheryl Ladd and the PanOpti® Lens

Former Charlie's Angel Cheryl Ladd took the opportunity to seize life with the PanOptix® Lens. See how she traded cataracts for clarity and approached cataract surgery with optimism.


Seeing Things Differently

Cheryl relies on her vision every day. But recently, she noticed it was holding her back from living the life she wanted.

Losing Vibrancy

“I hadn’t realized how slowly this sort of sepia or soft brown color had come over my vision.”

Struggles on the Set

“I couldn’t see the scripts. I couldn’t read them. It was so frustrating.”

Confusion on the Golf Course

“I’d hit a great shot. It would feel really good. But I just couldn’t tell where the ball went.”

Cheryl wanted vision that was sharp, vivid, and complete. So she chose the PanOptix® Lens.

“If I could tell people one thing about cataracts, I would say that you have no idea what a bright beautiful world there is out there. And my PanOptix® Lenses have given it back to me.”

An Opportunity for More


PanOptimism means never having to compromise because of poor vision. Cheryl plays many roles, and she knew she wanted to see the big, bold life all around her. That’s why she opted for the lens that would give her a full range of vision, opening up all the possibilities for her every day.

Cheryl Phone

“One of my favorite things is to look on my phone at pictures of my grandkids.”


“If I want to hop in the car and go to a restaurant in San Antonio, I’m very confident now.”


“I can see the dogs playing outside!”

See Life Confidently 

Cheryl has rediscovered the vision she loves. It’s clear why Cheryl and so many others are happy with their choice.

AcrySof®IQ PanOptix® Family of Trifocal IOLs

Important Product Information

CAUTION: Restricted by law to sale by or on the order of a physician.

DESCRIPTION: 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.

There is a chance that you still may need glasses for distance, intermediate, and/or near vision. You will get the full benefit of the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL when it is placed in both eyes. Please discuss with your eye doctor whether this is the right IOL for you.

POTENTIAL SIDE EFFECTS: Due to the design of multifocal IOLs, there are some side effects that can be associated with the AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL models. These may be worse than with a monofocal IOL, including visual disturbances such as glare, rings around lights, starbursts (rays around light sources), and reduced contrast sensitivity (decrease in ability to distinguish objects from their background, especially in dim lighting). These side effects may make it more difficult to see while driving at night or completing tasks in low lighting conditions, such as at night or in fog or in a dimly lit room, after surgery as compared to before surgery.

Further, a toric IOL corrects astigmatism only when it is placed in the correct position in the eye. There is a possibility that the toric IOL could be placed incorrectly or could move within the eye. If the toric lens is not positioned correctly following surgery, the change in your astigmatism correction by the IOL, along with any necessary correction with glasses, may cause visual distortions. If the lens rotates in your eye, you may need additional surgery to reposition or replace the IOL.

ATTENTION: As with any surgical procedure, there are risks involved. Prior to surgery, ask your eye doctor to provide you with the Patient Information Brochure for the proposed AcrySof® IQ PanOptix® Trifocal IOL to be implanted. This document will further inform you of the risks and benefits associated with this IOL. Discuss any questions about possible risks and benefits with your eye doctor, as well as your medical condition and any eye disease you may have.
