Dual optic accommodating lens Ebony cams free trial
Initial reports of close to 100 eyes implanted with this lens have demonstrated that more than 95% of eyes have accommodative amplitudes of more than 1 D, 70% have more than 2 D, and 20% have more than 3 D.
There are currently no peer-reviewed publications to substantiate these promising reports.
The Nu Lens accommodating IOL is designed to change its true power during accommodation and has been shown in an animal model to deliver over 40 D of accommodation.
The Nu Lens incorporates a small chamber of silicone gel and a posterior piston with an aperture in its center that allows the gel to bulge relative to the forces generated by accommodation (Figure 6).
Accommodating IOLs may very well transform the practice of cataract and refractive lens surgery.
This is because accommodative IOLs can potentially provide unaided near visual acuity without the optical aberrations and image degradation that may accompany multifocal IOL implantation.
The Morcher Bio Com Fold Type 43E, Human Optics 1 CU, Lenstec Tetra Flex, and eyeonics crystalens are examples of single-optic IOLs.
After being placed in the aqueous at body temperature, the Medennium Smart IOL transforms into a soft gel that completely fills the capsular bag and maintains some elasticity.
The AMO Flex Optic IOL is an accommodating IOL that fills or conforms to the capsular bag and is designed to increase its anterior radius of curvature (and true power) in addition to changing its position in the capsular bag during accommodative effort.
The Morcher Bio Comfold 43E is a single-optic/ring haptic lens.
During accommodative effort, the ring haptics are brought together resulting in a forward axial movement of the optic with a resultant increase in the functional power of the lens.
