    Personal experience with using an IOL for varied situations

    There are several benefits of a three-piece fully pre-loaded aspheric acrylic hydrophobic IOL system

    A typical day for an ophthalmic surgeon necessitates working in a variety of situations and undertaking demanding procedures when performing cataract surgery. Not all cataracts are equal and neither are the patients.

    While every surgeon would like to implant an IOL in the capsular bag following cataract removal, this is not always possible or indicated. Sometimes complications can occur, and in-the-bag IOL implantation may be not feasible due to the absence of capsule support resulting from ocular trauma, previous ocular surgery or congenital anomalies.

    Therefore, the choice of IOL largely depends on the type of surgery, cost, patient characteristics, reliability, ease of use and safety.
