• Is It Possible To Be Allergic To Intraocular Lenses (IOLs)?


    Question:

    Is it possible to be allergic to intraocular lenses?


    Answer:

    No. Intraocular lenses don’t cause allergic reactions. However one can develop inflammation in the eye if the lens is positioned in such a way as to be irritating other tissue such as the iris. This is not allergy.
