Best IOL Treatment in Yorkshire
For such a small medical device, the intraocular lenses an amazing technology. Modern IOLs simulate the refractive properties of the natural lens so that you can enjoy better vision after surgery.
Commonly made from an acrylic material, the lensoptic is about 6mm wide and the thickness varies depending on the lens power. The IOL is made from a soft, foldable material that can be implanted through a micro incision, approximately 2.0mmin size.
The most common type of intraocular lens has amonofocal optic that provides a single correctivepower calculated to provide good distance vision.
It is normal that with monofocal IOLs, for some tasks such as reading and close work, you may still need glasses.
Prior to your IOL treatment in Yorkshire, your surgeon at Yorkshire Eye Doctor will discuss which IOL is best for your vision needs.
Your doctor may recommend a state of the art ZEISS IOL. ZEISS is a trusted brand in optics, and is well known for manufacturing a wide range of high quality lenses.
What are toric intraocular lenses?
Toric IOLs are a special type of intraocular lens, with the optic shaped especially to correct corneal astigmatism. The light rays, which are distorted when passing through the astigmatic cornea, are corrected by the lens. Light is then properly
focused on the retina, providing good distance vision.
Implantation of a toric IOL requires exact measurements of your eye, to enable your
surgeon to select the correct lens and angle or “axis” of implantation, to correct the
regular corneal astigmatism.
What are multifocal intraocular lenses?
Multifocal IOLs are more technologically advanced to provide more than one focal point. The base lens power is calculated to provide good distance vision and additional focal points provide vision at closer distances, such as for reading, writing or
other close work.
Multifocal toric IOLs are designed for patients with astigmatism, to provide special toric correction for distance vision, as well as additional focal points for seeing objects that are up close.
ZEISS is a trusted brand in optics and is well known for manufacturing a wide range of high-quality lenses. Great sight is a big advocate of Karl Zeiss as the patient response is phenomenal.
