Accommodating lens

30 Apr

People recover from CLEAR surgery 1–7 days after the operation.During this time, they should avoid strenuous exercise or anything else that significantly raises blood pressure.However, other types are available, such as multifocal IOLs that provide the patient with multiple-focused vision at far and reading distance, and adaptive IOLs that provide the patient with limited visual accommodation.Surgeons annually implant more than 6 million lenses.The procedure can be done under local anesthesia with the patient awake throughout the operation.

Some of the risks that FDA have been found so far during a three-year study of the Artisan are: One of the causes of the risks above is that the lens can rotate inside the eye if the PIOL is too short, if the eye was incorrectly measured, or because the sulcus has a slightly oval shape (the height is slightly smaller than the width).The surgeon can ascertain the astigmatic, or steepest, meridian in a number of ways, including manifest refraction or corneal topography.Manifest refraction is the familiar test where the eye doctor rotates lenses in front of the eye, asking the patient, "Which is better (or clearer), this one or this one?They should visit their ophthalmologists regularly for several months to monitor the IOL implants.CLEAR has a 90% success rate (risks include wound leakage, infection, inflammation, and astigmatism).
