Intraocular lenses are implanted in the eye to correct, generally, high myopia and hyperopia. They provide an excellent quality of vision and are especially indicated in cases of amblyopia or “lazy eye”. Recently, we have started to use state-of-the-art lenses that can also correct astigmatism efficiently. These lenses respect the ocular anatomy of the eye and are made with special materials that make them biocompatible with the structures of the eye.
It’s a very precise surgery that is done without hospital admission and with topical anaesthesia.
These lenses can also be used to treat cases in which the condition of the patient’s cornea doesn’t allow laser surgery.
