Sir Harold Ridley is recognised today as the inventor of intraocular lens implantation, one the most successful and common procedures in all of surgery. His story, however, is not largely one of triumph and public accolade. This paper reviews Ridley's invention of the intraocular lens and highlights the struggles he faced after his discovery.
