S-20 Symposium: The Changing Focus of Intraocular Lens Implants
Sponsored by the International Intra-Ocular Implant Club
When Sir Harold Ridley implanted the first intraocular lens (IOL), the major concerns were related to fixation and biocompatibility. Decades of innovation have addressed these concerns, and today our attention has moved from discussions of the structural aspects to discussions of the functional aspects of IOLs. Members of the International Intraocular Implant Club (IIIC) will discuss modern IOLs, how the focus can be modified to provide presbyopic solutions, and what types of IOLs they prefer for their own patients.
