Visual simulation through different IOLs

Examining patients with different corneal profiles using adaptive optics

Currently, the main aim of cataract surgery is to provide the best visual quality to patients. The design of the intraocular lens (IOL) implanted after cataract extraction plays an important role to achieve this purpose.

Various designs

Then, if one takes into consideration the available designs of IOLs and the changes that corneal refractive surgery provokes, it should be interesting to know which current designs of IOLs could provide an optimal visual quality in patients with various corneal profiles (i.e., virgin corneas, as well as corneas that have undergone prior corneal refractive surgery for both myopia and hyperopia correction).
