Before the development of intraocular lenses (IOL’s), patients had to wear “coke bottle” glasses after cataract surgery. First approved by the FDA in the 1980’s, the first line of IOL’s were called monofocal IOLs, which were and are still today used mainly to correct for distant vision. Premium IOLs bring about a new era in IOL technology, allowing good distance and near vision, without glasses for a majority of patients. Premium intraocular lens implants (IOLs) are an effective and safe way of restoring vision to patients after cataract surgery.
