The Latest in IOLs: Light Adjustable and Trifocal IOLs—Experience from Aboard
- 7 Downloads
Purpose of Review
To investigate the latest findings in the field of intraocular lenses and their future development.
The idea of intraocular lenses (IOLs) has changed the clinical practice of cataract surgery over the last 50 years. Technology and scientific studies have created IOLs of different designs, with ultraviolet filters for UV protection, different types of haptics to ensure stability, multifocal designs for distant, and near vision. IOLs’ development is fast and it is time to explore the new designs and their usefulness.
The newest data from the IOL field are on light adjustable and trifocal IOLs, which are presented herein and are expected to change our perspective and lead the way in even more complicated and useful IOLs.
