Eyesight quality after cataract surgery depends on the type of intraocular lens (IOL) implanted. Dr. Federico Badalà relies on the most innovative intraocular lens in Milan and Catania.
Standard Intraocular Lens:
This intraocular lens (IOL) allows to focus well on near or far objects. Glasses can become necessary in both cases.
In case of low contrast or vision at night, vision quality is not going to be optimal.
Aspherical Intraocular Lens:
Better night vision than traditional intraocular lens (IOL).
Increased sensitivity to contrast than traditional intraocular lens (IOL).
In case of fog, vision quality is better that traditional intraocular lens (IOL).
Toric Intraocular Lens:
This intraocular lens can correct astigmatism and cataract.
It guarantees a better vision of near objects and far object to patients with astigmatism.
Vision quality provided is the same as the one offered by aspherical lenses after cataract surgery.
Hi-Tech Intraocular Lens, customizable with light:
Selected cased proved that this type of lens guarantees the best possible vision without glasses.
It can correct myopia, ipermetropia, astigmatism and presbyopia, together with cataract.
These lenses adapt to the patient’s needs, correcting even the lesser flaws called aberrations.
Cataract surgery is adapted and tailored to the patient’s need; every single intraocular lens is going to be customized and, for this reason, different from patient to patient.
Multifocal Intraocular Lens:
These lenses have two or more focal points and make it possible to properly focus on near and far objects after cataract surgery.
In case of prolonged reading or small characters, it is necessary to rely on corrective lenses.
In dark spaces, colored halos can be perceived next to light sources.. These lenses can be implanted also for patients that have already undergone traditional cataract surgery and are willing to get rid of glasses.
Accomodative Intraocular Lens:
Thanks to its particular shape, this lens seems to restore the natural mechanism of focusing near objects that people usually lose getting older. Cataract surgery removes the lens that is no longer able to accomodate and substitute it with an intraocular lens that does.
In any case, its effectiveness in time is yet to be proven.
Intraocular Lens for Maculopathy (OriLens e LMI Lipshitz Macular Implant):
These lenses are ideal for patients suffering from cataract and maculopathy and consists in a system of telescopic lenses (intraocular telescope) that allows to significantly enlarge the central image.
Cataract surgery with these lenses help patients with dimaculopathy and a very low virus to largely improve central vision and details perception.
It works like a video enlarger is implanted inside the eye. Enlarging the central image, the lens allow patients to start reading again, in selected cases.
Vision after cataract surgery depends on the intraocular lens that has been chosen for every eye. The greatest patient satisfaction after cataract surgery comes from a conscious choice of the intraocular lens used. This also lowers the risk of surgery complications.
