What is Intraocular Lens?

As we age, lens dysfunction occurs, a broad term that includes conditions such as cataracts, presbyopia and other disorders that affect the natural lens of the eye. When the lens loses its transparency or elasticity, vision deteriorates, causing symptoms such as blurred vision, difficulty focusing and impaired distance vision, sometimes with near and sometimes with distance vision.

Ein häufiges Symptom des Linsendysfunktionssyndroms ist der Graue Star (Cataract), in which sich die naturliche Linse des Auges eintrübt und eine Sehbehinderung verursacht. Cataracts develop in der Regel mit zunehmendem Alter, können aber auch durch Faktoren wie Genetik, Diabetes oder längere Einnahme bestimmter Medikamente verursacht werden. Wenn der Graue Star das tägliche Leben erheblich beeinträchtigt, ist die Implantation einer Intraocularlinse (IOL) der wichtigste Eingriff.

Cataract Surgery and Intraocular Lens Implantation

Cataract surgery involves removing the cloudy lens affected by the development of cataracts and replacing it with an artificial intraocular lens. Modern intraocular lenses come in a variety of types, including monofocal, multifocal and toric lenses, and the surgical plan can be customised according to the visual needs of the patient. Cataract surgery and intraocular lens implantation together not only restores clarity, but also frees from dependence on glasses or contact lenses.

Multifocal Intraocular lenses for Presbyopia (Near vision)

Individuals struggling with presbyopia may benefit from multifocal intraocular lenses designed to provide clear vision at different distances. These lenses contain multiple focal points and allow for improved near and distance vision without the need for reading glasses.

Advanced Technology Lenses

Technological advances in intraocular lens design have led to the development of premium lenses such as toric and extended depth of focus (EDOF) lenses. Toric lenses correct astigmatism, while extended depth lenses improve vision at various distances, giving patients a wider range of visual acuity.

Intraocular Lens Implantation: Phaco Surgery

Phaco surgery is a common and highly successful procedure used in the treatment of various eye lens disorders, especially cataracts.

Cataract surgery today can last from 10-15 minutes to 30 minutes depending on the degree of the lens or cataract. Patients usually stay in the hospital for only 2-3 hours and are sent home. Drip anaesthesia is applied during the procedure and patients do not feel anything during cataract surgery. It is very important to come to the control the next day, drops are started.

Preoperative Evaluation:
Before the surgery, a comprehensive examination is performed to evaluate and determine the patient’s occupation, social life, the type of lens needed, and eye health. Measurements of the eye, including cornea and eye length, are taken to ensure correct intraocular lens selection and placement.



IOL implantation surgery is usually an outpatient procedure under local anaesthesia, i.e. drip anaesthesia, the patient does not need to be hospitalised. This means that the patient is awake but will not feel pain during surgery. In some cases, intravenous sedation may be provided to help the patient relax.


Corneal Incision

A very tiny incision of mm is made in the cornea, or the transparent front part of the eye. In recent years, many surgeons prefer to use smaller incisions, known as micro incisions or transparent corneal incisions, to minimise trauma to the eye and facilitate faster healing.



Phacoemulsification is the technique commonly used to break up and emulsify cataracts or cloudy lens. By entering the eye with a tiny 1-2 mm instrument, ultrasound waves are emitted that break the natural lens we want to remove into small pieces. The emulsified pieces are then sucked out of the eye.


IOL Placement

After the natural lens is removed, the artificial intraocular lens is inserted through the same small incision. The IOL is carefully inserted into the lens capsule and remains securely in place without the need for stitches.


Wound Closure

In many cases, the incision closes spontaneously and does not require stitches. The natural elasticity of the cornea helps it to heal on its own.



Patients are monitored shortly after surgery and most can go home the same day. Vision may be blurred initially, but improves as the eye heals.

IOL Types

Monofocal IOL (Single Focus)

They correct distance vision but do not simultaneously correct near vision and existing astigmatism. Monofocal lenses are the simplest, basic type of intraocular lens. They provide clear vision at a single focal point, typically near or far.

Multifocal IOL (Multifocal)

Multifocal lenses have multiple focal points and allow patients to see clearly at different distances (e.g. near, intermediate and far).

Toric IOL

Toric lenses are designed to correct astigmatism, a common condition in which the cornea or lens has an irregular shape, leading to blurred or distorted vision. Toric IOLs are particularly beneficial for patients with astigmatism, providing clearer vision and reducing the need for glasses after surgery.
