Guenal Kahraman and Michael Amon
In this chapter we will describe the rational for supplementary IOL that were
developed mainly for the correction of post-surgery refractive error. We will describe the
alternative and the advantages of the supplementary IOLs. Supplementary IOLs are also
available for astigmatism correction and as a multifocal version with or without a blue light
protection. We will describe and discusses the clinical results of the available IOL.
