Consequently, the choice of an aspheric IOL to compensate corneal aberrations and achieve the best visual acuity (BCVA) and the best contrast sensitivity is determined by careful study of the corneal HOA and its spherical aberration. Presently, the FDA has approved 3 lenses for correction of positive spherical aberrations: Tecnis Z9000 (AMO), SofPort AO (B + L), and AcrySof IQ (Alcon).
