We present a new methodology to obtain, to the best of our knowledge, the first intraocular lens (IOL) designed to balance the coma induced by the cornea due to the global ocular tilt. This lens is designed to mimic the situation naturally occurring in the normal healthy eye. The new proposed IOL provides an improved optical quality for all lens powers.
