Understanding the accommodating intraocular lens

Presbyopia-correcting lenses can expand your range of clear vision, allowing you to see well at all distances with reduced need for eyeglasses.

In a normal eye (without presbyopia or cataracts), this dynamic process of accommodation adjusts the focusing power of the eye by changing the thickness of the eye's natural lens.Since the lens is monofocal, the light can only be bent to one focus point at a time.With monofocal IOLs, the light is bent by the lens so that it will form a focus point on the retina of the eye.When light enters a monofocal lens, it is bent to a focus point.As the power of the lens becomes stronger, its ability to bend light more sharply is increased.
