TITLE Innovations in Intraocular Lenses
ABSTRACT: The newest intraocular lenses (IOLs) attempt to provide better vision for cataract surgery and refractive lens exchange patients. Great strides have been made in understanding and designing lenses to address IOL-related problems such as posterior capsular opacification, dysphotopsia (unwanted images), and higher-order wavefront aberrations. New IOLs include the Technis Z9000 (Pharmacia) that was conceived to correct spherical aberration and improve contrast sensitivity and the Light Adjustable Lens (Calhoun Vision) that can correct hyperopia, myopia, and astigmatism. Other novel IOLs include small-incision IOLs such as the ThinOptix lens (ThinOptix) and the SmartLens (Medennium) that can be inserted in a 1.5 mm incision. Accommodative lenses such as the AT-45 CrystaLens (C&C Vision), diffractive bifocals such as the CeeOn 811e (Pharmacia), the M4 (IOL Tech), and the MA60D3 (Alcon) IOLs and the refractive multifocal Array (AMO) IOL are designed to make patients less dependent on spectacle use.  Author(s): George Beiko, MD
