Can someone, perferably a Doctor, describe the characteristics, intent, and any unusual results of following IOL's:
1- AMO Model NXG1 Diopter 22.0 D
2- Bausch & Lomb Model LI61AOV +21.5D
Thank you in advance. Duane54
LIG1AO is an exellent 3 piece siliconeofocal IOL that is truly aspheric. I have used in on thousands of cases and it is one of my favorite lenses. The NXG1 is the Rezoom multifocal IOL that has different zones of power to provide distance and near vision but can cause problems with glare and halos especially at night.
Why do you ask? A better question might be, which one is better for me??? Is that where you are going?
These IOL's are what I have in my eyes. After 13 months of noted problems plus with Rezoom implant and no notible improvements I opted for monofocal in second eye on July 21, 08. Undecided on explant of Rezoom as I see reasonable- 20/25- with it in good light. I also had YAG treatment and ERM surgery in Rezoom eye. Have slight ERM problem in other eye as well and uncorrected vision is not as good as Rezoom eye yet. I was searching for info.and confirmaton of what I have and in trying to determine what I should do next if anything. Thank you so much for response. Duane54
