Novel IOL designed to improve image quality in periphery

A novel IOL, designed to control field curvature and reduce peripheral astigmatism, holds promise to provide superior image quality in the whole visual field, according to one presenter at the virtual Association for Research in Vision and Ophthalmology meeting.
“Current intraocular lenses are designed to optimize focus at the eye’s central retina, with not much attention to their off-axis performance,” Pablo Artal, PhD, said. “In addition, IOLs are very thin in comparison with our natural lens. The reason is obvious, because we favor surgery through a small incision,
