I am using queries very often which look like "... WHERE
LOWER(field)='..';" to allow case-insensitive search on varchar

Does this make indexes useless or are there algorythmns which allow
using indexes even in this case?
Are there ways how this could be done in a better way?

Thank you in advance, lg Clemens
