Help with cataracts
You have been diagnosed with cataract. The treatment involves replacing the natural lens of the eye with an artificial lens, a so-called intraocular lens (IOL). This can significantly improve vision.
As a manufacturer of medical implants for eye surgery, we develop and produce these artificial intraocular lenses. Our goal is to offer your ophthalmologist the best possible treatment options to maintain your eyesight with a selection of high-quality premium products.
The following pages provide information on cataracts and a helpful overview of the various treatment options. You will also learn more about our state-of-the-art production technology to the highest quality standards for your maximum safety.
If you have further questions about your treatment, please contact your opthalmologist.
In addition to the most frequent cause – namely ageing – clouding of the lens can also be congenital or caused by an injury to the eye or by medication.
In the case of extreme nearsightedness, farsightedness, or astigmatism, the ophthalmologist might advise to remove the natural eye lens before it becomes cloudy and replace it with an artificial lens of appropriate correction. This type of lens replacement is called “refractive lens surgery” or “clear lens extraction.”
How can cataracts be recognized?
Which individual treatment options are available for cataracts?
A range of implants with different properties are available to surgeons for the treatment of cataracts.
The standard treatment is the use of so-called monofocal lenses (“single power lenses”) made of high-quality material. They enable clear eyesight at the preferred distance (far or near).
Innovative premium intraocular lenses are equipped with special functions and can offer additional benefits over standard IOLs depending on individual needs and medical criteria.
Read on to learn more about the advantages and potential applications of different intraocular lenses (IOLs).
What is so special about IOLs made by HumanOptics AG?
HumanOptics AG is one of the leading manufacturers of the highest quality intraocular lenses. Our goal is to restore the best possible vision to the human eye: quality and innovation for the benefit of patients.
