Power vision accommodating iol

As the power of the lens becomes stronger, its ability to bend light more sharply is increased.Since the lens is monofocal, the light can only be bent to one focus point at a time.

However, uncorrected distance vision data were not available. Nichamin described the IOL as a “continuously variable monofocal” device.With monofocal IOLs, the lens bends the light so that it will form a focus point on the retina of the eye.A surgeon can chose an IOL that focuses light best coming from distant objects, or a stronger powered IOL that focuses light better from near objects.The lens and ciliary muscle are connected by a 360-degree series of fibers (called ciliary zonules) that extend from the ciliary muscle to the thin lens capsule (or "bag") that encloses the lens.The ciliary muscle, ciliary zonules and lens capsule keep the lens suspended in its proper position inside the eye for clear vision.This is why they are classified as "accommodating IOLs." Both lenses are manufactured and distributed by Bausch Lomb.
