We provide professional support in Deformed lens syndrome.
Our eyes, like our bodies, are exposed to aging over
time. Even people who do not need to wear glasses for many years may start
to have vision problems at near and far over time.
Have you, after years of seeing, started to experience
problems such as blurred vision, glare, and difficulty driving, especially at
If your answer to these questions is yes, the reason for
your decrease in vision may be due to Deformed Lens Syndrome, that is, the
normal aging of your natural intraocular lens in your eye.
The eyes act like a camera. Thanks to its
flexibility, your healthy natural intraocular lens in your eye changes and
adjusts its shape and thus its focus, depending on the distance of what you
want to see and focus on; this way, you can see things that are far away
from you, in the middle distance, and near you, just like a camera’s zoom
The healthy natural intraocular lens, which has not yet
been deformed or lost its feature, allows the light to enter the eye without
scattering, glare or creating a blurry image. In DLS, the natural
intraocular lens in the eye loses this camera function over time. You have
trouble focusing when looking at things at close, medium and far distance. Your
natural intraocular lens loses its flexibility and hardens with Deformed Lens
Syndrome, meanwhile it loses its clarity and becomes dull.
The first stage begins in your 40s, when your natural
intraocular lens in your eye loses its flexibility, albeit partially. Many
people at this stage try to overcome this problem by using near reading glasses
or bifocal glasses.
When you reach your 50s and 60s, you enter the
second stage where the ability of your natural intraocular lens to pass light
and see deteriorates. This leads to a decrease in image quality due to
increasing yellowing and deterioration of light distribution; it causes
poor night vision, needing more light, especially at night.
In your 70s, Deformed Lens Syndrome enters the
third stage, also called cataracts.
DLS naturally occurs over time and also affects patients
who have had LASIK surgery before, because LASIK is a treatment applied only to
the corneal layer above the eye, not the intraocular lens itself.
In the second and third stage Deformed Lens Syndrome,
your natural intraocular lens that has lost its function can be replaced by a
Smart Intraocular Lens. This replacement improves and stabilizes the light
transmission and vision capabilities of your lens.
