The standard intraocular lens has no focusing capability, whereas an accommodating intraocular lens allows focusing on near and distant objects.C75.1 Insertion of prosthetic replacement for lens NEC Note: A supplementary OPCS-4 code is used to identify the method of concurrent extraction of lens (C71-C74) It is not possible to capture the type of lens using OPCS-4.Eye World takes a look at the pros and cons of the lenses. D., Nashville, agreed, “The Re STOR is definitely the best near vision lens on the planet.” However, Dr.A big advantage of multifocal lenses, said Stephen G. D., Houston, is that the Re STOR lens (Alcon, Fort Worth, Texas) has the best near vision of any of the lenses. Slade said, “The disadvantage [of multifocal lenses] is that some patients, not very many, but some have problems with the quality of vision, either glare or halos or they describe waxy vision or things like that.” Paul J. D., clinical instructor of ophthalmology, Jules Stein Eye Institute, University of California at Los Angeles, said of the two multifocals, his preferred lens is the Re STOR Aspheric because it tends to be the most effective at eliminating the need for glasses for distance and near.

Horn described, “I noticed when I was sitting talking to him that he was reading a list of questions but the questions were on his lap. And I saw that he was reading them with his Re STOR eye that I had just operated on because his other eye was still hyperopic so he couldn’t have been reading it with that eye.Most IOLs fitted today are fixed monofocal lenses matched to distance vision.However, other types are available, such as multifocal IOLs which provide the patient with multiple-focused vision at far and reading distance, and adaptive IOLs which provide the patient with limited visual accommodation.The use of a flexible IOL enables the lens to be rolled for insertion into the capsule through a very small incision, thus avoiding the need for stitches, and this procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes in the hands of an experienced ophthalmologist. After surgery, patients should avoid strenuous exercise or anything else that significantly increases blood pressure.
