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.
Thanks to their small size, intraocular lenses (IOL) provide an excellent technology. Modern IOL focuses light on the retina, imitating refractive qualities of the natural lens in order for the patient to enjoy a better vision after the surgery. Usually manufactured with acrylic material, the lens optics measures approximately 6 mm wide and the thickness […]
As we get older, starting at age 40, sometimes we begin to experience changes in vision that indicate that we suffer from eyestrain or presbyopia. With the advancement of the techniques, this problem of refraction can easily be corrected by surgical intervention. Monovision Monovision is a technique in which the dominant eye is corrected […]
