IOL Reference App Allows Surgeons to Search for FDA-Approved IOLs

July 18, 2022

Matt Hirabayashi, MD, of eyeflymd.com, and Gurpal Virdi, MD, of Eyelabs.ai, have launched the "IOL Reference" App on iOS, which is designed to allow surgeons to quickly search for FDA approved, currently marketed IOLs that meet their needs and specifications. It also allows students and residents to learn more about the current lens options.

Surgeons can input up to 13 parameters (eg, power, toricity, material, manufacturer, compatible cartridge, etc.) and view accurate results in an intuitive format and clean interface, according to a company news release.

This search function aims to make finding the most appropriate lens to fit the details of case easy. Learners can search by model number or browse the lens options by several categories, including manufacturer or platform, to learn the details of a lens or become more familiar with the current market.

The database contains almost 10,000 individually cataloged lenses and is updated to include newly FDA approved IOLs, changes to current lenses, and corrections.

The team has plans to expand functionality to include a biometry scanning feature for transcription error-free access to IOL calculations that may not be available on in-office machines.

The app is available in the Apple App Store today with plans to port a version for Android in the near future.
