We have developed a wide range of intraocular lenses offering ophthalmic surgeons a great choice when looking for a solution best suited to their patient’s. We are a Medical Device manufacturer of Intraocular lenses (IOL), Capsular Tension Rings (CTR) and Viscoelastic (Visco). Made in the USA!. Abstract. Several intraocular lens (IOL) materials and types are cur- rently available. Polymethyl methacrylate IOLs used to be the gold standard, but the inability.

The foldable acrylic hydrophilic IOL was folded longitudinally with forceps and implanted into the capsular bag. It is said the idea of implanting an intraocular lens came to him after an intern asked him why he was not replacing the lens he had removed during cataract surgery.

In very young children, VAO is virtually inevitable and rapidly develops following surgery when the posterior capsule is left intact.

In younger patients 1—4 years, 24 eyesanterior capsulotomy was performed using an automated vitrector in circular motion to create a 4—5 mm opening; in older children 16 eyesa bent-tip 27 needle and capsular forceps were used under viscoelastic support to create a 4—5 mm anterior continuous curvilinear capsulorrhexis.

First, they are ingraokular alternative to LASIKa form of eye intrakoular that intraoku,ar not work for people with serious vision problems.

Hydrophilic foldable IOLs have excellent uveal biocompatibility, are resistant to surface alterations or damage during folding and insertion, and have low potential to damage corneal endothelial cells in case of contact. The patients were divided into two groups based on age at the time of surgery; younger than 2 years group 1 and 2 years or more group 2.

Proposed pathogenesis for the delayed postoperative opacification of the hydroveiw hydrogel intraocular lens.


As with aphakic eyes, toric PIOLs have to be aligned with the meridian of astigmatism; toric IOL misalignment or rotation can lead to residual or even greater astigmatism postoperatively.

Intraokuar IOLs show little or no surface alterations or damage from folding because of their soft flexible surface.

None of the patients were excluded due intrakoular intraoperative complications which were practically nil. They should visit their ophthalmologists regularly for several months to monitor the IOL implants.

Effect of heparin surface modification in reducing silicone oil adherence to various intraocular lenses. Retrieved 2 Jun The authors concluded that Acrysof IOL implantation with appropriate management of the posterior capsule provided a clear visual axis in pediatric cataract intraokulaf. Morphological and functional results of AcrySof intraocular lens implantation in children: Retrieved from ” https: METHODS This randomized clinical trial included 40 eyes of 31 consecutive patients aged 1 to 6 years with unilateral or bilateral congenital or developmental cataracts.

Though patients who undergo a standard IOL implantation no longer experience clouding from cataractsthey are unable to accommodateor change focus from near to far, far to near, and to distances in between. Conclusion In pediatric eyes undergoing lensectomy with primary posterior capsulotomy and anterior vitrectomy, hydrophilic acrylic IOLs are comparable to PMMA IOLs in terms of biocompatibility and visual axis clarity, and seem to entail less frequent postoperative complications.

YAG capsulotomy is necessary, these lenses have a high threshold for laser induced damage. After a mean follow-up of 2. You can help by adding to it. The Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews.

Visually significant calcification of hydrogel intraocular lenses necessitating explanation. Intraocular lens IOL is a lens implanted in the eye as part of a treatment for cataracts or myopia. The pseudophakic IOL provides the intraaokular light focusing function as the natural crystalline lens. The major problem with hydrophilic IOLs is the low capsular biocompatibility, but with appro-priate posterior capsule management performing at least 4 mm posterior capsulotomy lwnsa limited anterior vitrectomy, we encountered no case of VAO.

The inflammation subsided by increasing the frequency of steroid drops and use of mydriatic-cycloplegic eye drops in all 7 eyes. Effective IOL implants also entirely eliminate the need for glasses or contact lenses post-surgery for most patients. Fibrinous uveitis due to increased tissue reactivity is a common complication during the early postoperative period in pediatric cataract surgery.

Depending on their placement site in the eye, PIOLs can be divided into: One of the causes of the elnsa above is that the lens can rotate inside the eye if the PIOL is too short, if the eye was incorrectly measured, or because the sulcus has a slightly oval shape the height is slightly smaller than the width. Lens epithelial cell regression on the posterior capsule with different intraocular lens materials.

Intra- and postoperative complications, visual outcomes and refractive errors were compared between the study groups.

This page was last edited on 16 Decemberat Phakic IOL appear to be less dangerous than excimer laser surgery in those with significant nearsightedness. Within each group, 16 eyes underwent posterior capsulotomy and vitrectomy however the posterior capsule was left intact in the other 16 eyes.

These are implanted during cataract surgeryafter the cloudy eye’s natural lens colloquially called a cataract has been removed. This allows the lens to be folded and inserted into the eye through a smaller incision.
