PerfectVision

Three million Americans a year have cataract surgery. While very successful, 10 percent complain of glare related to the new intraocular lens that has been placed in their eye as part of this procedure, and up to 10 percent would like a better refractive result (better vision without needing glasses). This is especially true for those who have previously had refractive surgery like LASIK, PRK and RK because our ability to predict the correct lens power is limited in such cases. The invention is a low-profile intraocular lens that can be placed in the eye after cataract surgery for the correction of all refractive error and disabling glare. The surgery can use the original incision and would take a matter of minutes. Refractive accuracy would be very precise and the new lens is easily replaced at any time if the eye changes in its refractive needs. It could also be used to create multifocality (see far and near without other correction).
