Perspectives from the Bench

What has driven the development of adjustable lens technologies?

Incorrect IOL power calculation resulting from incorrect measurements of the eye is the most likely cause of refractive errors after cataract surgery, and this may require explantation of the lens. Furthermore, as current standards regarding IOL power labeling allow a certain tolerance, the power in the label may not reflect the actual precise power of the lens. In the near future, the problem of incorrect IOL power will likely be exacerbated by the rising popularity of laser refractive surgeries, the increasing expectations that patients place on their physicians to give them ‘perfect’ vision, and the arsenal of IOLs currently available. All of these facts warrant the development of postoperative IOL adjustment technologies.
