A relative now 30, had a cataract removed 25 years ago from his right eye. The entire lens capsule was removed which we understand was common practice at the time. His vision is +12 diopters in that eye.
His left eye is -7 diopters. The doctor says that his lens is off center. Marfans would be an answer but he is otherwise asymptomatic.
The recommended solution is an IOL in the right eye, an ICL in the left eye with the potential that ICL may not be satisfactory for the left eye in which case a standard single vision IOL would be inserted.
I am interested in professional opinions and patient experience. Particularly around the IOL with no lens capsule and ICL
