The Fred Hollows Intraocular lens Laboratory (FH IOL Lab), has been striving for excellence in intraocular lenses (IOLs) manufacturing and has been producing innovative and superior intraocular lens designs and supporting products since its inception in 1995. Initiated by The Fred Hollows Foundation in Australia, its products are sold to almost 30 countries around the world.
" I studied medicine so I could help others-set a
leg or whatever and its given me a great deal of
satisfaction." But setting legs was not what
Professor Fred Hollows ended up doing...
Fred had done an eye term at medical school and, as a result, he assisted eye surgeons at Auckland Public Hospital in his first job after graduating.
At the same time, he had growing interest in practicing in Africa- "there seemed to be a crying need for properly run clinics, free of political or church influence" - and someone told him if you were to be useful in Africa you had to know how take out cataract because there was a lot of cataract blindness."
" I had a very nice tour of the manufacturing facility. It's amazing & impressive that the standards are so high. I feel confident now implanting them in the human eye."
You have chosen a design (FH106) which we think is an absolute state of art. In terms of surface finish and general sem appearance i've never seen a better lens manufacture.
"The intraocular lens manufacturing facility is at par with the best manufacturing facility of the west - beautiful clean-room facility and excellent quality control. so this is a real service not just to the people of Nepal but to other countries as well."
