Lens surgery is a refractive operation to correct vision by exchanging the natural-defected lens with an artificial lens.
The purpose of the lens is to refract the light rays to conduct a full image in the retina. When the lens is not functioning, as it should be that it is called cataract malfunctioning. Having a cataract can be like looking through a foggy or cloudy aura. The vision becomes blurry, hazy and color-faded.
The IOL (Intraocular Lens) is a permanent solution because it is made with a perfectly transparent material that will never cloud or fad. IOL is one of the most important medical advances in the history of ophthalmology due to its perfect results as an alternative for healthy vision.
What to Expect During Cataract Surgery?
During eye diagnosis, the doctor will determine the proper focusing power for IOL (Intraocular Lens). In addition, you will discuss your preference and post operation expectation to conclude the suitable choice upon your case.
Cataract surgery is applied under sterile conditions in the operations room with internationally certified doctor and well-trained medical crew. The procedure takes around 10 minutes per eye and under eye-drop anesthesia.
Types of Lens Replacement Refractive
The smart Lens, also known as trifocal IOL, is a three focus artificial lens implanted into the eye to correct three distance visions problems, near, middle and long distance. Patient with myopia and hyperopia are advised to get trifocal IOL
IF you are diagnosed with astigmatism, toric lens implants are the most popular technologies for cataract patient. It is mostly common that after laser surgeru that, people experiemce blurred vision without eyeglasses. Toric interocular lenses reverse the effect and correct the astigmatism power of the eye.
The difference between toric lens and the other lenses, is that toric IOL have special markers on the peripheral parts of the lens. It enable the surgeon during the operation to alter the orientation of the lens to successfully correct astigmatism.
How Long Does It Take for Recovery Phase after Lens Replacement Surgery?
After the operation, you will sleep with a transparent plastic protector on your eyes that will be removed the next day during the eye control. Then you can return to your daily routine. It is perfectly normal to feel a little bit of dizziness and headache to the blurry vision for the first 3 days. Moreover, the doctor will prescribe eye drops to be used for the first month.

IOLs come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The lens itself is made of a transparent polymer material such as PMMA, silicone, or acrylic. The material may also be designed to absorb ultraviolet light. The anterior and posterior surfaces of the lens will each have a radius of curvature designed to refract light as it passes from aqueous to lens and again to aqueous. Variations on the relationship between the radii of curvature of the front and back surfaces of the lens exist. Biconvex lenses have two different radii of curvature for the surfaces, whereas equiconvex lenses have the same radius of curvature on both surfaces. Planoconvex lenses have one flat surface and the second surface has a radius of curvature. The aperture of these refracting surfaces defines the optical zone or region of the IOL.
