Conventional Intraocular Lens
What are Conventional Intraocular Lenses?
As technology progresses, cataract surgery becomes more and more effective in its ability to restore vision as accurately and naturally as possible. There are many options for cataract patients as to which type of replacement lens they desire with surgery, but recent studies have shown that monofocal aspheric intraocular (IOL) lenses yield the most satisfied patients.
What Can Monofocal Aspheric Lenses do for me?
Aspheric lenses provide improved functional vision over traditional spherical lenses, which do not correct spherical aberration. Spherical aberration is a type of higher order aberration that commonly affects eyes as they age and the natural lens becomes thicker and cloudy. This can lead to glare, halo and blurriness when light hits the eye. Aspheric lenses counteract this natural condition and let light focus on one single point, leading to clearer vision.
What is the Difference Between Monofocal and Multifocal Intraocular Lenses?
Although multifocal IOLs are available that let patients experience corrected distance and near vision with no further need for glasses, monofocal lenses are still commonly used by those who do not mind wearing glasses. Monofocal lenses are reliable and safe, and provide corrected distance vision and an improved functional vision when combined with aspheric technology.
What are the results from Monofocal Aspheric Lense Surgery?
Monofocal aspheric lenses offer an effective and reliable choice for cataract patients by offering improved contrast sensitivity and night driving, along with its traditional corrected distance and functional vision.
