Choices Of IOLs at Dr. Gadgil Eye Hospital

Dr. Gadgil Eye Hospital offers a wide range of intra ocular lenses (IOLs) that can be implanted after cataract surgery.

IOL

1 ) Monofocal foldable IOLs :

They are commonly used in the cataract procedures and are easy for your eye to adapt too. These are designed to provide good vision at one distance – usually for distance. Patients usually need reading glasses after surgery for close activities such as reading, craft or computer work.

2) Multifocal Foldable IOLs :

These are designed to provide good vision for distance and near. People usually do not need glasses for distance & near activities after cataract surgery.

Compared to Monofocal IOLs these can reduce dependence on glasses for activities like reading , viewing text on computer screen or watching movie.

However about 5% of patients complain of haloes after implantation of these IOLs.

Sharper Distance :

The Multifocal IOL can Provide sharp distance vision in all light conditions for all lifestyles. Three distinct distance – dominant zones provide good distance vision in bright, intermediate, and low light conditions.

Better Intermediate :

The Multifocal IOL can provide sharp distance vision in all light conditions for all lifestyles. Three distinct distance – dominant zones provide good distance vision in bright, intermidiate, and low light conditions.

Versatile Near :

The Multifocal IOL can provide critical intermediate vision in all light conditions for all  lifestyles.

For many who wear glasses or contact lenses the  multifocal lens could mean independence from these. The multifocal lens not only treats presbyopia and cataracts, but it also turns back the clock to restore much of your ability to see up close, and at distance, in both bright light and low light situations.

3) Toric IOL :

Toric lens is a revolutionary single piece foldable lens specially designed to correct astigmatism. Toric intraocular foldable lens is implanted during cataract surgery to reduce Corneal Astigmatism / Cylindrical number / Axis. With Toric IOL implantation Corneal Astigmatism can be eliminated to regain high quality distance vision after the Cataract Surgery.
