What is an intraocular lens?
Patients often ask the question, “what is an intraocular lens?”. An intraocular lens (IOL) is an artificial replacement for the natural lens in your eye. They are most commonly used in Cataract Surgery, with a number of intraocular lens types available to match your visual needs.
Our medical director, Dr Oday Alsheikh, will talk you through the different types of lenses available, intraocular lens implant pros and cons, how much time you will need to take off for surgery, as well as your expected recovery time, to help you choose the right solution for you.
