Our hydrophilic acrylic lenses have unique advantages including:
No vacuoles or glistening, does not stick toinstruments, and is similar in many ways to the natural crystalline lens. The aqueous humor permeates the lens much like the natural lens. The hydrophilic material has a good history of biocompatibility, and with a strong matrix exhibits excellent folding and unfolding characteristics.
EyeKon Medical’s foldable lenses are made from our unique patented copolymer of hydrophilic and hydrophobic monomers. EyeKon’s advanced square edge design allows for the reduction of posterior capsular opacification by creating an obstruction that is not easily by-passed.
All Hydrophilic lenses are co-aspheric.
Hydrophobic material has been shown to have less chance of PCO, inflammatory cell response, bacterial adhesion with minimum pigment deposition.
Our material is FREE of vacuoles and glistening due to the lathe cut versus others that are molded. Molded lenses trap air which will produce vacuoles and glistening.
EyeKon’s hydrophobic IOL’s are aspheric, designed to offset the eye’s inherent positive spherical aberrations while maintaining a good depth of field.
PMMA lenses are made with time tested PMMA-CQ UV, the proven ophthalmic implant material of choice. Every PMMA lens is proven safe and effective.
PMMA (Polymethylmethacrylate) has been in continuous use as an IOL biomaterial for several decades and has the best safety record of all currently available IOL biomaterials.
Our PMMA lenses are Lathe-cut for consistency and quality and maintain a smooth surface even when in contact with vascular or physically active tissue. Polymethylmethacrylate is not adversely affected by UV light and not biodegradable within the eye.
