An intraocular lens (IOL) refers to the implant that will replace the natural lens of your eye. IOLs are used in both cataract and refractive lens exchanges procedures. IOLs are often made from a clear plastic and are smaller than a dime.
Recent advancements in vision correction technology have led to the development of a wide range of IOLs that are able to correct other vision issues in addition to cataracts.
TLC offers a wide range of IOL options, which allow patients to see clearly at all distances.
This ensures the best post-operative vision results possible and can greatly reduce or even eliminate the need for glasses and contacts.
Our team at TLC Laser Eye Centres is proud to offer a large selection of IOLs, so you can find one that best suits your specific needs.
These lenses offer the ability to improve a patient’s distance vision post-procedure, but glasses may still be required for near-vision activities, such as reading a label or a book.
These lenses are designed to provide focus for near, distance, and intermediate vision. They’re the best lenses for reducing the need for reading glasses.
IOLs of this nature are specifically made to treat astigmatism, a condition in which the eye is shaped like a football instead of a sphere.
Every patient is different, so not every IOL will be suitable for your needs. An eye examination is required to determine your candidacy for different types of IOLs.
