Refractive Surgery by IOL Implantation
Klinik für Augenheilkunde, Friedrich-Schiller-Universität Jena
Refractive surgery done by IOL implantation is increasing. The demarcation line to corneal refractive surgery is clear.
The increasing number of refractive lens procedures is caused by al better accuracy in biometric methods, possibilities of precise measurements of aberrations (lower and higher orders), and the improvement of IOL designe and surgical procedures.
Actually, there is an increasing importance in three fields of correction, correction of aphacia by monofocal special spheric and aspheric lenses and the demand in monofocal, bifocal, multifocal and accommodative IOLs.
The results have to be compared with the outcome after refractive corneal surgery.
