Visual Outcome &Corneal Topographic Changes After Hydrogel IOL Implantation
Full paper Not Available

The advent of small incision cataract surgery and the development of Phacoemulsification by Kelman in late 1960s stimulated the search for new IOL materials. The perfect IOL is the one that may cause less inflammation, low incidence of capsular ¬įpacification; and may be easily inserted through a small incision with less postoperative astigmatism. The evolution of intraocular lenses in the last decade has been remarkable, improving the design, the materials utilized as well as the specifications and objectives.
