Paper Abstract

Cataract is one of the main reasons of blindness now. The essence of this pathology is opacification of the eye lens. The main method of cataract treatment is microsurgical extracapsular cataract extraction (ECCE) with implantation of an intraocular lens (IOL). At present, the types of JOLs differ in its optical parameters and structural features. We performed the comparative study of various types of lOLs in respect to visual rehabilitation of the patients. After the implantation of the IOL we measured the visual acuity, the color perception, the post-operative refraction of the eye, the IOL decentration, the cell adhesion onto the surface of the IOL and some other parameters. In addition, we studied the dependence of the patient's visual discomfort caused by various optical effects and aberrations upon the IOL type. As a result of this investigation we found a number ofcorrelations between the IOL types and some characteristics ofthe patient's vision. The consideration ofthe IOL features determinates the indications and contraindications for using of different types ofthe lOLs and promotes to improving ofquality ofpatient's vision.
