Abstract


With an explosive increase in the world-wide prevalence of presbyopia, development of an accommodating intraocular lens with expansive accommodative amplitude remains the Holy Grail in lens based refractive surgery. A dynamic change in the dioptric power of the eye can be accomplished by various strategies alone or in combination, including changes in the position, shape, or refractive index of a single or dual optic intraocular lens (IOL). This article reviews the cumulative advances in these various lens designs, as well as clinical outcomes and complications of those that have been implanted in man. The challenges that remain in each category are also highlighted.
