What is An Implant


Once the lens is removed the natural focusing ability is also removed during cataract surgery. To replace this focusing ability an artificial lens or intraocular lens is placed inside the eye. The intraocular lens is a tiny artificial lens this is implanted in essentially the same location previously occupied by the natural lens. It is capable of restoring vision to near normal, although you may need to wear regular reading glasses. You will not be able to feel your intraocular lens and it never has to be handled, adjusted or cleaned.
