• Can I get IOLs with prism correction?


    I am 70 years old and have had prescription glasses with prisms for double vision for almost 50 years. I have very slight cataracts that do not require surgery now. However, could I have lens replacement surgery with lenses that have prisms?


    Unfortunately, there are no intraocular lenses (IOLs) that have prism in them. Depending on how much prism you have, eye muscle surgery can eliminate the need for prism in some cases.
