Accommodating IOLs One approach, accommodating IOLs, tackle the problem differently.
The restoration of near vision in older individuals that have entered the presbyopic age is considered one of the major challenges in refractive surgery during the last decade.
There are three principal approaches for the achievement of good near and far vision concomitantly.
In order to achieve that goal, dual-optic accommodating Intraocular Lenses have been designed, whose anterior optic displaces axially to increase ocular power, and focus near objects.
Although dual-optic accommodating IOLs are relatively new, their outcomes are promising, as they provide large amplitudes of accommodation and a greater IOL displacement than single-optic accommodating IOLs.
For nearly two decades, “presbyopia-correcting” intraocular lenses (IOLs) have been available to post-cataract surgery patients, but for a variety of reasons they have garnered only modest interest.
