A wide variety of Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are available depending on the material, optical quality, designs & functions.
Foldable IOLs can be inserted through incisions less than half the size required for Rigid IOLs.
Single Piece IOLs can be implanted through smaller incisions than required for Multipiece IOLs. Square edge IOL design has the ability to prevent posterior capsule opacification.
Hydrophobic Acrylic IOLs are superior to hydrophilic ones.
Aspheric IOL designs provide better Contrast sensitivity and sharper images leading to shorter reaction times during night driving.
Toric IOLs can neutralize preexisting cylindrical powers & provide better spectacle free vision.
Monofocal IOLs can provide sharp vision for either distance or near. Spectacles are required for the other. Multifocal IOLs can provide distance & near vision and reduce spectacle dependence but some patients complain of decreased brightness & contrast and haloes around lights. Our Doctors & Counselors discuss with the patient their Occupational & Lifestyle needs and make appropriate recommendations.
