Smart Intraocular Lens Implantation (IOL) at Veni Vidi Eye Health Center

Smart intraocular lens implantation (IOL) (Multifocal or EDOF lens implantation by Phaco or clear lens extraction)


How is the procedure performed?



The procedure begins with a cataract operation if patient has a cataract and followed by an implantation of a smart IOL that could give fine vision and spectacle independence in all distances.


If the patient is high hyperopic (beyond the range of laser vision correction) or presbyopic, then clear lens extraction (remarkably similar procedure to cataract operation by phacoemulsification) is performed followed by a smart IOL implantation. Usually, the eyes are operated with daily intervals.


Type of Surgeries

Mainly phaco-emulsification of a cataract lens or clear lens extractions.



Topical mainly (general anesthesia only if patient is uncooperative)


                                                                                                       Multifocal IOL (Intraocular Lenses) 


Anticipated risks and rate of known risks

Cataract surgery has a high safety profile. Research published in Ophthalmology found that nearly 100 percent (99.5 percent) of the 221,594 cataract surgery patients included in the study had zero serious complications following the procedure.


Also, the research showed the risk of severe complications decreased significantly with advances in surgical tools and techniques over the 12-year period during which the surgeries were performed.


Potential cataract surgery complications include: 

  • Posterior capsule opacity (PCO)
  • Intraocular lens dislocation
  • Eye inflammation
  • Light sensitivity
  • Photopsia (perceived flashes of light)
  • Macular edema (swelling of the central retina)
  • Ptosis (droopy eyelid)
  • Ocular hypertension (elevated eye pressure)

When cataract surgery complications do occur, most are minor and can be successfully treated medically or with additional surgery.
