Bausch + Lomb has launched its new enVista glistening-free, hydrophobic acrylic IOL. The enVista lens represents a significant step forward in IOL technology. Bausch + Lomb announced the introduction of the enVista MX60E with StableFlex technology, the company’s next-generation hydrophobic. In mid, the Food and Drug Administration approved the enVista hydrophobic acrylic IOL (Bausch + Lomb). This lens is the only.

I encourage other ophthalmologists to give it a trial. And lastly, this monofocal IOL is truly glistenings-free which is highly valuable when referring optometrists see these patients in the postoperative comanagment period. The IOL is very easy to implant, very safe, and very comfortable for the surgeon. The Brightness Acuity Tester score was just more than one-half line lower than the Snellen acuity. The enVista intraocular lens is a hydrophobic, single-piece ultra-violet absorbing posterior chamber envitsa lens designed to be free of spherical aberration.
The refractive index is 1.

Reproduction in whole or in part without permission is iiol. Stephenson was working through a 2. The surgeon is not afraid to break the posterior capsule. The researchers found that all 42 of the IOLs had some degree of lenticular glistenings. Polishing the anterior subcapsular epithelium off while it’s unfolding makes efficient use of the time. Glistenings are fluid-filled microvacuoles that form in the optic of the IOL in an aqueous environment.
Aspheric lenses are aberration-free. At-a-Glance Aspheric optics with a sharp edge design Iiol ranges available from 0. Get stable refractions without early capsular haze.
After decades of not much change, microscopes are beginning to change the way surgeons operate. Researchers found no evidence that contrast sensitivity was affected by the glistenings. Stephenson was one of the first ophthalmologists to implant the enVista lens in the United States outside of the pilot study. Glistenings in the AcrySof intraocular lens: Excellent lens with no glistenings, very easy to insert, excellent toric platform, easy to load, folds controllably, and no scratching or chips.
Of the 15 IOLs with glistenings graded higher than trace, 14 93 percent had been in the eye for more than one year. The lens was placed using a Medicel Accuject injector system. Pearls and Pitfalls Sumitra S. If the lens loses clarity, a cataract forms, and vision deteriorates. No glistenings and no complaints.
It is a very nice IOL, and patients and surgeon are very satisfied. Image courtesy Peter Heiner, MD.
All of those 25 patients are within 0. The enVista is the best monofocal IOL without any vacuoles. These glistenings form within the superficial layer of an IOL, potentially causing some of the light coming into the eye to be scattered.
