IOLs (Intraocular Lens)

An intraocular lens is a tiny clear plastic or silicone device that takes the place of the cloudy natural lens that has been removed. They have been used for over 50 years and have allowed patients to regain clearer vision after cataract surgery. The implant will usually allow you to resume your normal activities. The new implants stay in place and IOLsremain clear for your lifetime.
