Hydrophobic material has been shown to have a lower chance of PCO, inflammatory cell response and bacterial adhesion with minimum pigment deposition.
High Index of refraction imparts:
- Excellent folding & unfolding before & after insertion
- Reduced surface scattering
- Smaller incision required due to thinner lens
High Tensile Strength:
- Damage resistance during folding and insertion
- Reduced possibility of foreceps and folding marks
