IOLs are medical implants
What are intraocular lenses?
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are high-quality medical implants that are inserted into the eye as a replacement for the natural lens to treat cataracts.
IOLs are made from well-tolerated synthetics of a very high medical quality and are generally soft and foldable.
The implants have a diameter of just a few millimeters and fit perfectly into the eye thanks to their shape and the flexible material.
The first intraocular lens was implanted as early as 1949. Since then, the medical care of cataract patients has continued to evolve: gentle surgical procedures, innovative implants and modern, safe manufacturing methods have enabled even better treatment.
We have more than 35 years of experience in the development and production of intraocular lenses, and we set a global standard for innovation and safety. Using the most advanced technology, we work every day to provide your ophthalmologist with the best medical implants to enable optimal treatment for you.
What are the advantages of a standard intraocular lens?
Standard IOLs are monofocal lenses that enable the best vision at a specific distance. Beyond simply treating cataracts, an existing ametropia (shortsightedness or farsightedness) can be individually taken into account and corrected when your ophthalmologist selects the lens.
The previous lens power can be integrated into the intraocular lens. In most cases, reading glasses or progressive spectacles are still required for near-vision.
The following pages will give you an overview of how premium IOLs work. The use of a premium IOL may not be covered by your health insurance. Your ophthalmologist will be happy to advise you in detail and select the appropriate lens in a personal consultation with you.
