I might expect only 20/32 or so (mean uncorrected near achieved in the U. Meanwhile, I'm struggling to make out these words as I type, pretty much anything inside of 23 inches is blurry, and in good light I can only make out the 20/80 line (if I really exert myself, I can barely make out, mostly by guessing, some of the 20/60 letters, but mostly they're entirely unrecognizable).
I feel as if I could have gotten results like this simply by going with monofocals, and I'm beginning to fear this is as good as it'll get, which is depressing.
accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) is designed to restore the vision of youth to the middle aged or elderly individuals affected by presbyopia and/or cataracts.
Our mission is to provide a fluid based lens technology that solves clinical and lifestyle needs caused by these conditions thereby creating the most significant innovation in vision correction surgery since the invention of the IOL.
Overall, the reported results with these lenses by independent authors have been modest in relation with the restoration of the accommodative power of the eye and these modest benefits are usually lost with time due to the long term changes in the capsular bag.
This fact made these lenses to be almost abandoned in the last few years, but there are currently other AIOL models being used with innovative mechanisms of action and different anatomical support outside the capsular bag that offer encouraging preliminary results that could bring a new potential of application to these types of lenses.
Moreover, use of these IOLs has grown only 6% per year since 2010. New presbyopia-correcting IOLs, including accommodating and toric accommodating designs, are being developed with an eye toward expanding the stunted market.
