Intraocular lenses, or IOLs, is the artificial lens implants that replace the eye’s natural lenses after cataract surgery.

Recent advancements in lens technology have made it possible to not only treat the cataract, but to reduce or eliminate dependence on glasses as well. In most cases the patients have reported having the best vision of their lives.

But with all surgeries it is important to know the risks and discuss the options with your eyecare provider to help you determine the most appropriate treatment option for you.
