Th;s paper reviews some reasons why many ophthalmic surgeons do not implant intraocular lenses. It presents some parameters of a theoretically "ideal" lens, some of the disadvantages and advantages of the currently available anterior chamber intraocular lenses, and lastly, it offers designs for a new anterior chamber intraocular lens. While preserving the advantages of currently available anterior chamber intraocular lenses, the new designs may have certain advantages. Currently under investigation, the new lenses may be available for use in man within the next year.
