Implant of intraocular lenses

What is the implant of intraocular lenses?

The implant of intraocular lenses is an alternative made to correct refractive errors such as myopia (nearsighted), farsightedness, or astigmatism.

The intervention is performed under topical anaesthesia and lasts 15 to 20 minutes. It is ambulatory.

In which cases is it done?

Surgery should be performed whenever it is considered: in cases of large refractive errors (many diopters), thin or irregular corneas, elderly patients for whom excimer laser application is not recommended, etc.

Previous exams

A complete ophthalmological examination should be performed prior to intraocular lens implantation, including anterior chamber measurements and endothelial count (cells present in the endothelium of the cornea).

Post-operative exams

Relative rest must be done 3 days after the intervention (avoid exertion). Then you can lead a normal life. You should also avoid rubbing your eyes.

Risks

After surgery, periodic reviews should be done every 1-2 years to ensure that there are no complications such as loss of endothelial cells or glaucoma.
