During cataract surgery, your physician will replace your natural lens with an IOL.
Today there are multiple types of IOLs, each delivering a different performance profile based on how the lens is designed.
Anecdotal reports of cataracts shortly after LASIK, even in relatively young patients, suggest a cause and effect relationship.
Moreover, steriod drops routinely prescribed after LASIK may hasten the onset of cataracts.
Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgement should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk / benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient.
Unlike most other IOLs, the AO IOL optic has hinges connecting it to the haptic; please see adverse events section below for more information.
Patients with signs of cataracts before LASIK should not have LASIK because vision may be corrected with the intraocular lens used for cataract surgery.
Do not delay, as medical records may be destroyed after five years in some states.
Ask your doctor about standard monofocal IOLs, multifocal IOLs, and Crystalens accommodating IOLs to see which is right for you.
