IOL-VIP system

The IOL-VIP system - Intraocular lens for Visually Impaired People

 

The IOL-VIP system has been developed to provide patients with macular degeneration and other forms of macular disease an improvement in their central vision.


Dr Wayne Birchall has performed the first procedures in Australasia with good results

In this exciting new procedure two small lenses are inserted into the eye, one in front of and one behind the iris. Together, these lenses form a telescope, magnifying the image and diverting it to healthier part of the retina. The healthy retina takes over the role of the macula and can give AMD patients significantly improved vision.

The potential improvement in vision can be tested using a special telescopic simulator which demonstrates the effect of the IOL-VIP system so patients can experience the possible improvement before the operation.

The IOL-VIP system can help patients with ‘dry’ and established ‘wet’ macular degeneration where the area of diseased or scarred macula is relatively small and other forms of macular disease including macular holes, myopic degeneration and hereditary retinal diseases e.g. Best’s, Stargardt’s.
