Yellow IOLs

Yellow IOLs include a blue light filter resulting in a yellow tinted lens, which can provide certain benefits over clear IOLs. The yellow tint can help to filter out blue light, which is known to cause glare and reduce contrast sensitivity, particularly in low-light conditions. By filtering out blue light, yellow IOLs can provide better visual clarity, particularly for people who spend a lot of time outdoors or in bright environments.

However, yellow IOLs may also have some drawbacks. The yellow tint can cause colours to appear less vibrant or accurate, and some people may prefer the more natural appearance of clear IOLs.

Yellow IOLs are generally recommended for people who have certain vision needs or preferences, such as those who are particularly sensitive to glare or spend a lot of time outdoors.
