Accommodating intraocular lenses for patients with cataract a review
Cochrane researchers collected and analysed all relevant studies to answer this question and found 20 studies.
Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews: Plain Language Summaries [Internet] - John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. Given the poor quality and significant heterogeneity between the included trials, this conclusion was appropriate.
The team found that eyes with myopia had a greater diameter of the ciliary muscle ring, and that the effect was considerably superior to the age effect on vision.
Download PDF While hundreds of monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) are on the U. market, only 10 of the so-called “premium IOLs” are available. More than 230 clinicians, researchers, FDA leaders, and industry representatives met to discuss novel endpoints for premium IOLs, covering such topics as adverse events (AEs), methods for assessing visual disturbances, and surgeons’ expectations for IOLs providing near vision.
Swiss Advanced Vision, a company that designs, manufactures, and distributes a new generation of intraocular lenses for cataract surgery, recently announced a new product for post-cataract surgery, an intraocular lens (IOL) called In Fo Instant Focus, that is says restores “perfect vision.” The In Fo lens is the first implant that offers unmatched quality of vision at all distances after removal of the crystalline lens in patients going through cataract surgery, the company says in a press release.Why is it taking so long to get more of these lenses approved? In addition, they discussed a new type of IOL known as the extended depth of focus IOL (see “New Kid on the Block”). Food and Drug Administration (FDA) explored these questions and more in a first-ever collaborative workshop held this spring.However, both preclinical and clinical testing will be needed to verify this.The advent of EDOF technology also opens the door to various combinations with other types of lenses, speakers pointed out.
