(If you think about this in comparison, most of those “readers” available off the shelf in Walgreens and CVS provide 1.25 to 2.5 diopters of focusing power.
A lens that provides 3 to 4 diopters of correction would generate a full range of vision.) To learn more about the Fluid Vision IOL, check out Developed by Lens Gen, the Juvene accommodating IOL is a fluid-based two-lens system that mimics the function of the eye’s natural lens.
With these new IOLs, as the ciliary muscle contracts, the accommodative lens contracts with it, curving and thickening to allow for focusing up close. Essentially, an accommodative IOL is the closest thing to the natural lens of the eye.
The only accommodating IOL currently approved by the FDA is Bausch Lomb’s Crystalens.
There are an increasing number of people who are losing their land, livelihoods and basic access to food and potable water due to the adverse effects of climate change.
In an attempt to survive these people have no option but to seek sanctuary in nearby settlements (Myers, 1997).
Fortunately for cataract patients, there are a growing number of treatment options available, particularly in the area of intraocular lenses (IOLs).
Traditionally, patients have had two options when it comes to selecting an IOL: monofocal or multifocal.
Below are some of the new and exciting lenses currently in the works: Developed by Power Vision, the Fluid Vision accommodating IOL is a fluid-based lens that responds to the ciliary muscle to adjust focus.One lens (the base) is basically a standard monofocal IOL.
