He has gained an international reputation providing the latest and most innovative new surgery and implants available in the world for his patients.Today, IOLs are used widely in cataract surgery, but prior to 1945, cataract patients were left aphakic (a state in which the human eye has no lens inside it, mostly due to surgical removal).

If you can answer β€˜yes’ to any of the above, you may have presbyopia or cataracts or both which affects millions of people in the UK.

This also means that your vision is affecting your lifestyle and you may be a candidate for the Synchrony lens.

The London Eye Hospital is proud to be able to provide each patient with a choice of all the latest premium lens implants.

We are the only clinic in the UK able to offer the Light Adjustable Lens and the Synchrony accommodating lens.

The main disadvantage of this type of IOL is that they are not able to restore the accommodative power of the normal crystalline lens which enable humans to see far objects as well as near ones.

During cataract surgery, tthe natural lens of the eye (which is cloudy, causing poor vision) is replaced with an intraocular lens (IOL) implant.IOL technology is constantly evolving with the development of newer varieties.For example, some of the newer IOLs have a soft design that makes them foldable during implantation, allowing for a significantly smaller corneal incision.This condition lengthens eyesight as the focusing system becomes less flexible with age and near sight becomes more difficult.Most people require reading glasses as they reach middle age for this reason.Some are considered to be monofocal (offering vision at one distance β€” far, intermediate or near – only) while others are multifocal or accommodating, meaning that they are able to provide clear vision at a range of distances.
