A man-made silicone or plastic lens used to replace the natural crystalline lens of the eye. Used in cataract surgery, Phakic Intraocular Lens (P-IOL) implantation, or Refractive Lens Exchange.
(or IOL ) - an implanted lens in the eye, usually replacing the existing crystalline lens because it has been clouded over by a cataract. They usually consist of a plastic lens with plastic side struts called haptics to hold the lens in place within the capsular bag.

A permanent lens surgically placed behind the pupillary opening to replace the crystalline lens following a cataract extraction.
A plastic lens that is surgically implanted to replace the focusing power of the natural lens of the eye following cataract extraction. There are numerous styles of IOLs, including foldable IOLs and multifocal IOLs.
a plastic implant that is used to replace the natural lens of the eye. Abbreviated as “IOL.
A plastic lens inserted in the eye to replace the focal power lost when the natural lens is removed during cataract extraction. PC refers to the positioning of the lens in the posterior chamber of the eye (behind the iris).
abbreviated to IOL; plastic lens implanted in place of the crystalline lens during cataract surgery.
