Lens phakoemulsion to remove lens,
insertion of “Intraocular Lens Implantation”
and final appearance of successfully implanted IOL.
Intraocular lens is a lens implanted in the eye as part of a treatment for cataracts or myopia. The most common type of IOL is the pseudophakic IOL. These are implanted during cataract surgery.
Intraocular Lens Implantation Preclinical Models at CBI
Cataracts are a common cause of blindness world wide. Treatment generally consists of removal of the defective lens and surgical replacement with an artificial lens. An intraocular lens implant is a synthetic, artificial lens placed inside the eye that replaces the focusing power of a natural lens that is surgically removed, usually as part of cataract surgery.
CBI provides a range of sophisticated and customized intraocular implant models. We are offering intraocular lens implantation surgery for cataract treatment particularly in both pigmented and albino rabbits. Our DACVO board-certified ocular surgeons are skilled in IOL surgery which includes lens extraction (phako-emulsion) and then insertion of the artificial lens into the lens capsular bag. Some of our studies require the insertion of other or second devices, for example, devices that elaborate intraocular drugs such as beta blockers, anti-hypertensives, antibiotics, or anti-inflammatories. Specialized ocular surgical equipment at CBI include motor-driven surgical microscope, phakoemulsion device, microinstruments and operating micro-camera.
We provide state-of-the-art post-surgical care and sophisticated in life assessments including slit lamp examination, funduscopy, IOP determinations, pachymetry, fluorescent cornea and retinal examination, photography, as well as ocular histopathology and immunohistochemistry.
