IOL (Intraocular Lens)

Depending on your pre-operative vision and desired result, you and your surgeon at TLC Laser Eye Centres may opt to remove your cloudy lens and replace it with a clear lens implant called an intraocular lens, or IOL. This has been done for routine cataract surgery for years. In recent years there has been advancement in vision correction with cataract surgery, including new tests to measure the shape and power of the eye, IOLs, and additional procedures to correct for astigmatism, and reading vision correction.  This has given us the ability to tailor our treatment to your visual needs.

Having options is very exciting, but also can be overwhelming.  Rest assured, your doctor will take as much time to explain your options, evaluate your vision needs, and help you decide which is right for you.


There are numerous options to correct vision problems with cataract surgery. 


The needs of each patient are different, and an eye examination is necessary to determine your candidacy for the different types of IOLs. To learn more about which of our lens options would be best suited to your particular case, please contact one of our knowledgeable ophthalmologists today.
