Does anyone have experience with/knowlege about Alcon's new IOLs
(aspheric and toric models) which have a built-in blue-blocking
property? Allegedly, they may play a role in preventing age-related
macular degeneration. Alcon claims that these yellow IOLs don't affect
color perception or visual acuity. However, I've heard about
complaints of impaired night vision from recipients of these lenses.
Any info about this rather technical topic would be appreciated.


I asked about these before my procedure 1.5 years ago, and my surgeon
said they had had some problems with them and recommended against it,
esp. when standard iols mostly block the UV. I'm glad I didn't, because
that tint would definitly cut down on night vision.

I have them (Alcon AcrySof UV w/blue light filter, Model SN60WF)

in both eyes (since last December)
I have had some other problems, but not related to the lens. Do they
work? Who knows? I have nothing to compare them to. Right now, as I
recover from surgery on my right eye, I have no lens in my glasses on
that side. I have more glare on the side side with the lens, and that
lens is supposedly coated with the latest anti-glare. Won't waste
that money again, because I could compare.
My night vision is fine
Suggest you google all or part of the lens listing above and see what
you come up with.
