Abstract: In total 28 artifical intraocular lenses (IOL) are investigated and compared. For characterization of optical surface the parameters of roughness and wettability were determined. Mechanical examination includes the measurement of haptic compression forces; contact angle between haptic and capsular bag; axial displacement, tilt and decentration of IOL optics after haptic deformation to different compression diameters. Using the measured parameters, the different IOL types can be divided with respect to positive and negative occurrence of the parameters.
