What is it?
The AKKOMMODATIVE 1CU Accommodative Posterior IOL is an artificial lens implanted in the eye to restore vision after a clouded natural lens (cataract) is removed.
The lens of the IOL is convex on both sides (biconvex) and made of a soft plastic that can be folded prior to insertion, allowing placement through an incision smaller than the optic diameter of the lens. After surgical insertion into the eye, the lens gently unfolds to restore vision.
The 4 flexible supporting arms (haptics) provide for proper positioning of the IOL within the eye and push the lens anteriorly during contraction of ciliary muscle ( muscle inside the eye).
How does it work?
The AKKOMMODATIVE 1CU shift anteriorly during accommodation (contracted ciliary muscle) provides a clear image for most near objects. Without accommodation (relaxed ciliary muscle), the AKKOMMODATIVE 1CU provides a clear image for distant object.
When is it used?
The AKKOMMODATIVE 1CU is used in adult patients with and without presbyopia, who desire near, intermediate and distance vision with increased independence from glasses following cataract surgery.
What will it accomplish?
The AKKOMMODATIVE 1CU IOL has been shown in a clinical study to provide good near, intermediate and distance vision with increased independence from glasses in patients who have undergone cataract surgery.
