Understanding the accommodating intraocular lens

Rated 3.90/5 based on 598 customer reviews

Through its patented design, the In Fo lens is said to be close to the natural process of accommodation and readily adjusts focus to near-, far- and midrange vision, without the brain being confused by the multiplication of focal points, and without halos or ghost images regardless light conditions.

Accommodation is achieved through the contraction of ciliary muscles, which results in an increase in curvature and a forward shift of the natural lens in the eye.Presbyopic IOL technology can not only correct impaired distance vision, but also maintain the eye’s focusing power for reading and computer work.Not every patient is a good candidate for the presbyopic intraocular lenses.Additional trials, with longer follow-up, comparing different accommodative IOLs, multifocal IOLs and monofocal IOLs, would help map out their relative presbyopia occurs and remains a challenge.Standard monofocal IOLs correct only distance vision; patients require spectacles for near vision.
