# What is the side effect with eye lens operation?

## What is the side effect with eye lens operation?

Side effects are rare from cataract surgery, but some things that could happen are: Eye infection or swelling. Bleeding. Retinal detachment — the breaking away of a layer of tissue at the back of your eye that senses light.

## Does IOL have power?

Typical range of powers for IOLs is 5 D to 30 D in steps of 0.5 D for the most common lenses in the range. Additional IOL lens powers exist for cases of extreme refractive error or axial length. IOLs come in a variety of shapes and sizes.

## How IOL power is calculated?

Topography method It uses the keratometric reading and the flattest corneal power in the central 3mm zone to calculate the simulated K (SimK). This is then used to predict ELP. Errors occur due to central zone giving steeper K values. This K reading then predicts the IOL power.

## WHAT IS A in SRK formula?

The SRK formula uses the following equation to calculate IOL power: P = A – BL – CK, where P is the implant power for emmetropia; L is the axial length (mm); K is the average keratometry (D); and A, B, and C are constants. With this information, the formula can be written as follows: P = A – 2.5L – 0.9K.

## What are the different types of IOL?

What are the various types of Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) which can be implanted in the eye?

• Monofocal IOLs.
• Toric IOLs.
• Multifocal IOLs and Accommodative IOLs.

## What is pseudophakic eye?

Pseudophakia is a Latin word for false lens. We use this term after placing an artificial lens into the eye. Also known as intraocular IOL, lens implants, or “fake eye lenses,” this procedure can significantly improve vision after removing cataracts and replacing them with a new lens.

## What is UGH syndrome?

Uveitis-Glaucoma-Hyphema (UGH) Syndrome or Ellingson syndrome is a complication of intraocular chafing from intraocular lens (IOL) implants leading to a spectrum of iris transillumination defects and pigmentary dispersion to microhyphemas and hyphemas with elevated intraocular pressure (IOP).

## What does phakic eye mean?

Phakic refers to the fact that the lens is implanted into the eye without removing the eye’s natural lens. During phakic lens implantation surgery, a small incision is made in the front of the eye. The phakic lens is inserted through the incision and placed just in front of or just behind the iris.

## How do I find my eye IOL?

What are the signs that you need IOLs?

1. cloudy or blurry vision.
2. difficulty seeing in poor or dim lighting and at night.
3. images seem as if a brownish to yellowish filter has been added.
4. double vision in the affected eye.
5. difficulty seeing or focusing on things at a distance and up close.
