What Is an Intraocular Lens?
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are ophthalmic devices that are implanted within the eye to replace it’s natural lens when removed by cataract surgery. IOLs are used for a type of vision correction surgery called refractive lens exchange.
Since the early 1980s, FDA-approved IOLs have been available to replace the focusing power of the natural lens after cataract surgery and eliminating the need of special corrective glasses or contact lenses.
Shah Eye Center provides a variety of premium IOLs to choose from. We help you select the best intraocular lens for you based on many factors, including your lifestyle and your specific visual needs.
