More patients will now be suitable for implantation with the IC-8 small aperture intraocular lens (IOL), following the release of an extended power range from +10.0D to +30.0D (0.50 D steps).
The IC-8 IOL is a clear, aspheric monofocal lens with an embedded mini-ring or pinhole in the centre. Using small aperture technology, this novel lens is designed to increase a patient’s natural range of vision by protecting central organised light rays that enter the eye and restricting peripheral light rays that degrade image quality and range of focus.
“Having the IC-8 IOL in my practice has provided an exceptional option for my patients who are looking for spectacle independence,” said Professor Sathish Srinivasan, cataract and refractive surgery specialist at University Hospital Ayr, Scotland, and Medical Director of Ayrshire Eye Clinic. “With the expanded power range, the majority of my patients will now be able to access the benefits of small aperture optics.”
Clinical studies demonstrate the IC-8 IOL produces unparalleled visual outcomes that deliver nearly 3.00D of continuous and uninterrupted range of vision,1 compensation for up to 1.50D of corneal astigmatism,1,2 and excellent image quality.1
