  eMedicine - Intraocular Lens Decentration : Article by Robert H Graham, MD
Decentration of an IOL may be the result of the original surgical placement of the lens, or it may develop in the postoperative period because of external (eg, trauma, eye rubbing) or internal forces (eg, scarring, peripheral anterior synechiae [PAS], capsular contraction, size disparity).
Inadequate size: A lens that is too small may be too mobile and cause intermittent damage to the cornea and iris.

  Intraocular lens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
An intraocular lens (or IOL) is an implanted lens in the eye, usually replacing the existing crystalline lens because it has been clouded over by a cataract.
Insertion of an intraocular lens is the most commonly performed eye surgical procedure; cataracts are the most common eye disease.
Intraocular lenses have been used since 1999 for correcting larger errors in myopic (near-sighted), hyperopic (far-sighted), and astigmatic eyes.

 The National Institutes of Health (NIH) Consensus Development Program: Intraocular Lens Implantation
For those who are to undergo lens implantation, careful slit lamp examination of the eye is imperative to rule out abnormalities that may contraindicate IOL implantation, in addition, there was a consensus that A-scan ultrasonography is of definite benefit in the preoperative examination.
Elderly patients with disabling cataracts in both eyes, in which case an intraocular lens may be indicated in one eye, and perhaps in the second eye if the patient cannot function adequately on a uniocular basis.

The process resembles that of cataract surgery; however in cataract surgery the lens is clouded, whereas in this surgery, the removed lens is clear.
Used to treat a wide range of hyperopia and myopia, this procedure involves inserting an implant called an intraocular lens (IOL) into the eye's anterior chamber - the area in front of the pupil - or posterior chamber - the area between the iris and the normal lens.

 IOL - Intraocular lens implant
Intraocular lenses, commonly called IOLs, may be one of the most important ophthalmic developments in the past 30 years.
Lens implant surgery has become so advanced in recent years that its benefits have been extended to healthy eyes.
Phakic lenses (implanting an IOL without removing the eye’s natural lens) are an option that will soon become available to young patients who may not be candidates for other refractive surgery options.

 CBF: What is an Intraocular Lens (IOL)?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Normally, light passes through the cornea and pupil and is focused by the lens onto the retina.
Without the lens, the incoming light is not properly focused and forms an extremely blurred image on the retina.
In the U.S., instead of aphakic glasses, a plastic intraocular lens (IOL) is implanted in the eye during surgery to replace the cataractous lens.

Intraocular lenses has been used since 1999 for correcting larger errors in near sighted (myopic), far sighted (hyperopic) and astigmatic eyes.
This type of IOLs are also called PIOLs (phakic intraocular lenses) Most IOLs has not yet been approved by FDA, but many are under investigation, and some of the risks that FDA has found so far during a three year study of the Artisan lens, produced by Ophtec USA Inc, are:

In cataract surgery, the clouded lens of the eye is removed.
Intraocular lenses (IOLs) are commonly used in cataract surgeries to replace the removed lens.
The intraocular lens is a dramatic improvement compared to the aphakic glasses both in visual improvement and "ease of use." Unfortunately, the cost of the IOL and the time required by the more technical surgery was a significant impediment to its use in India.

With the intraocular snare, one of the haptics may be looped, and, at the same time, a 7-0 Prolene suture can be tied to it.
Although dislocated foldable IOLs were traditionally treated with removal of the lens and exchange to a PMMA IOL, a recent report demonstrates the feasibility of using existing surgical techniques to reposition the dislocated foldable IOLs.

 Intraocular Lens (IOL) Basics (IOL, cataract surgery, presbyopia, vision correction)
During cataract surgery the cloudy or discolored eye lens is removed, and replaced with an IOL, while phakic IOLs are placed directly over the existing lens.
In either case, the surgeon can make either a long incision along the side of the eye in which a non-foldable IOL can be placed, or a smaller incision for the foldable type, although the later is the more common practice.
Intraocular lens (IOL) insertion is a viable option for patients unable to undego LASIK.

 Intraocular lens implant (IOL) for cataracts
Surgery for cataracts involves removing the natural lens of the eye that contains the cataract and either replacing it with an artificial lens called an intraocular lens implant (IOL) or compensating for its absence with eyeglasses or contact lenses.
This type of intraocular lens is shaped to provide good vision in just one particular range of distances, either near or distance vision.
This type of intraocular lens design provides correction for both near and distance vision, and both near and far objects can be in focus at the same time.

This was due to the size of the non foldable intraocular lens implant.
Your doctor's selection of the foldable lens may be based on his/her professional observations of cases where an intraocular lens (IOL) provides excellent visual results, and shows a delay or resistance to the growth of a secondary cataract or capsular clouding (opacification).
Recovery time depends upon the underlying health of the eye, the ease of the surgery, and the technique and IOL which has been selected by you and your doctor.

 Cataract, Phacoemulsification & Intraocular Lens Implantation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-24)
Human eye has a natural lens which is normally transparent and forms a clear image of the outside world in the eye.
The reason being that unlike natural lens the IOL has a fixed power (estimated by doing Ultrasound of the eye) which is usually adjusted such that the mid-range or routine viewing distances are seen clearly, and for distances closer or further low powered glasses may still be needed.
Currently phacoemulsification with a foldable intraocular lens implantation through a 3 mm incision is the most preferred method of cataract surgery and has the best results, all over the world.
