What are Conventional Intraocular Lenses?

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.
