Abstract

Phacoemulsification technique with intraocular lens implantation has been a common treatment for cataract patients. With rising demand among the public, new technologies for lens design have emerged to minimize intraocular aberrations, improving visual quality to the largest extent. This paper systematically reviews the development of materials applied in lens manufacturing, the different categories of intraocular lenses, and respective design principles. The advantages and potential drawbacks of intraocular lenses are illustrated in the paper, and prospective research to improve the design are presented in the end.
