An IOL, or intraocular lens, replaces the natural lens of the eye to restore vision after a cataract has been removed.


IOLs are usually made of a flexible plastic with extensions called haptics that hold the lens in place once inserted into the eye. The IOL is rolled up and placed in the eye. Once inside, the IOL unfolds.

Monofocal IOLs

Monofocal IOLs are used to restore vision for one area of focus–usually distance. Reading glasses may still be needed.

Multifocal IOLs

Multifocal IOLs provide high-quality vision at multiple distances, with enhanced vision at a distinct distance customized to suit the patient's lifestyle. They may increase freedom from glasses.

Extended Dept of Focus IOL

Extended depth of focus IOLs provide high-quality, continuous vision — from near to far and points in between — and may reduce the overall wearing of glasses.
