abstract

  • PURPOSE OF REVIEW: This review examines the recent peer-reviewed literature of the past 18 months, with the goal of providing an overview of the pseudophakic lenses designed to provide accommodative action. Accommodative lenses take advantage of axial movement, refractive change and bag filling to provide their effect. Single and dual optic design, as well as unique technologies, were reviewed. RECENT FINDINGS: An overview is presented of the various accommodative lenses available for investigation and use. There is positive evidence that current accommodative intraocular lenses provide superior potential for near vision compared with standard intraocular lenses. SUMMARY: The available data suggest that accommodative amplitude and pseudoaccommodation are both important factors in the functional ability of accommodative intraocular lenses to provide a range of distance, intermediate and near vision.
