Lens Implant Surgery

What is Lens Implant Surgery?

Lens implant surgery is a term used to describe procedures that involve operating within the eye (intra-ocular) rather than on the surface, to either place an artificial implant to correct vision or replace the existing lens of the eye and adjust the prescription at the same time.

At Optilase we provide 2 types of Lens Implant Surgeries.

- Lens replacement and Cataract Surgery
- Phakics (IOL)

Types of lens

There are two main types of lenses implanted into the eye

Monofocal IOLs
These lenses have on specific focal point. Most patients target good distance vision and wear reading glasses. This lens can also be set to give good reading vision with the patient wearing distance glasses post-surgery.
Multifocal IOLs
Multifocal lenses aim to reduce spectacle dependence for a wider range of activities, including intermediate (computer screens) and near (reading) vision. If you are suitable for Refractive lens exchange, your surgeon will discuss which IOL type is the best option for you.

Lens Replacement

Lens replacement surgery is identical to modern cataract surgery. Both involve replacing the natural lens with an intra ocular lens (IOL). A lens replacement surgery is primarily performed to reduce the need for glasses or contact lenses.

A cataract is a misting up of the natural lens, which sits just behind the pupil and helps to focus light on the retina. Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens and replacing it with a clear synthetic implant called an intraocular lens (IOL).

Phakic (IOLs)

Phakic IOLs are clear implantable lenses that are surgically placed either between the cornea and the iris (the coloured portion of your eye) or just behind the iris. Phakic lenses are an option for those who may have been previously deemed unsuitable for laser eye surgery.
