Premium aspheric IOLs, on the other hand, match more closely the shape and optical quality of the eye’s natural lens, and thereby can provide sharper vision — especially in low light conditions and for people with large pupils.Popular aspheric IOLs that are FDA-approved and available in the U. include: Tecnis Aspheric (Abbott Medical Optics), Acry Sof IQ (Alcon), Sof Port AO (Bausch Lomb), and Softec HD (Lenstec).Popular FDA-approved multifocal IOLs include: Tecnis Multifocal IOL (Abbott Medical Optics) and Acry Sof IQ Re STOR (Alcon).An alternative to accommodating and multifocal IOLs for correcting presbyopia is monovision.
Traditional intraocular lenses have a spherical optical design, meaning the front surface is uniformly curved from the center of the lens to its periphery.
Then, when the toric IOL is implanted during the cataract procedure, the surgeon rotates the IOL so the markings on the IOL are aligned with the markings on the cornea to insure proper astigmatism correction.
Prior to the development of toric IOLs, cataract surgeons had to perform a procedure call limbal relaxing incisions (LRI) to correct astigmatism during or after cataract surgery.
FDA-approved IOLs have been available since the early 1980s.
Before the use of intraocular lenses, if you had cataracts removed, you had to wear very thick eyeglasses or special contact lenses in order to see after cataract surgery, since no device was implanted in the eye to replace the focusing power of the natural lens.They also have alignment markings on the peripheral part of the lens that enable the surgeon to adjust the orientation of the IOL inside the eye for optimal astigmatism correction.
