Accomodating for electric ovens
The demand for accommodation has spurred a number of companies to develop different types of accommodating IOLs.Below are some of the new and exciting lenses currently in the works: Developed by Power Vision, the Fluid Vision accommodating IOL is a fluid-based lens that responds to the ciliary muscle to adjust focus.One lens (the base) is basically a standard monofocal IOL.The second, fluid-based lens, which provides a more full range of focusing power, is then implanted through a smaller incision made possible by the base lens. Eric Donnenfeld believes that the Juvene lens “is the most exciting [lens] for the short-term treatment of presbyopia.” To learn more about the Juvene accommodating IOL, check out Developed by Elenza, the Sapphire Auto Focal IOL sounds quite futuristic.(If you think about this in comparison, most of those “readers” available off the shelf in Walgreens and CVS provide 1.25 to 2.5 diopters of focusing power.A lens that provides 3 to 4 diopters of correction would generate a full range of vision.) To learn more about the Fluid Vision IOL, check out Developed by Lens Gen, the Juvene accommodating IOL is a fluid-based two-lens system that mimics the function of the eye’s natural lens.An ambitious IOL indeed, but probably one that’s quite a few years from becoming a viable alternative.To learn more about the Sapphire Auto Focal IOL, check out The development of such new and innovative IOLs is sure to be welcomed with open arms if the AAO cataract estimates are correct.
One major difference of this battery-powered approach is that it’s not reliant on ciliary muscle function to control vision accommodation.Like so many users, after using the self-cleaning function, the oven’s light holder cracked and broke, the light bulb is off and most importantly the front glass door has cracked from one end to the other.Having done my research prior to the purchase BOSCH’s ‘quadruple glass/ best pyrolytic / safe oven self-clean’ was promising but obviously does not deliver. Googling that particular model and the breaking glass and light holder issues I came across other customer complaints and description of their experiencing the same issue.However it does not correct for medium vision between the two and can sometimes leave the quality of vision, as measured by contrast sensitivity, lower than experienced with glasses across all distances.Which brings us to accommodating IOLs, the Rolls Royce of implantable lenses.
