Intra Ocular Lenses
Intra Ocular Lenses
This procedure involves positioning an artificial lens inside the eye, which then acts like a contact lens. The lenses available are state-of-the-art and are selected for each individual based upon their prescription and requirement from the lens.
There are a wide range of lenses that can be used, including multi-focal and vari-focal lenses, which aim to correct both distance and reading vision.
You’re most likely to be suitable for one of our Intra ocular lens treatments.
The easiest way to think of an Intra ocular lens is as a contact lens that’s positioned inside the eye rather than on its surface.
The most common reasons for patients being recommended an IOL treatment is either a very high prescription (higher than -10 or +5) or the very early signs of cataracts beginning to form.
The lenses available for an Intra ocular procedure are state-of-the-art and may be selected for each individual based upon their prescription and requirements from the lens. They can correct higher levels of long sightedness, short sightedness and astigmatism.
Ultralase offer two different IOL procedures.
Artifical Lens Implant (ALI)
An Artificial Lens Implant involves placing a tiny lens inside the eye with the eye’s natural lens remaining in place. The artificial lens acts like a contact lens in providing extra focusing ability and therefore correcting your distance vision, while maintaining your ability to focus for near vision.
Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE)
This procedure involves removing the eye’s natural lens and positioning an artificial lens in its place. This artificial lens then acts like a contact lens. There are a wide range of lenses that can be used, including multi-focal and accomodating lenses, which correct both distance and reading vision.
At Ultralase we provide you with the best possible treatment options and the most sophisticated lens technology.
