The Intelligent IOL

Premium lens patients have high expectations. But how can surgeons guarantee optimal outcomes with soon-to-be outdated technology? Enter the Precisight® IOL by InfiniteVision Optics. Unlike conventional IOLs, the Precisight® anticipates the potential for future enhancement to the patient’s vision or the replacement of optical technology in the eye. The platform is composed of two optics, a base, which also functions as a docking station, and a front lens. In cases where a patient’s vision needs to be enhanced, only the easily accessible front lens is exchanged, minimizing the dangers associated with full lens explantation. “Surgeons can be very cautious about which patients they recommend a multifocal lens to – and for a good reason: nobody wants dissatisfied patients,” says Carsten Laue, President of InfiniteVision Optic. “But with the adjustable Precisight® platform, there is no need to worry. Both the surgeon and the patient know that there is a way to fix potential issues, and achieve the best possible vision – now and in the years to come.”

The concept of an intelligent IOL can be traced back to Theodore Werblin, a surgeon from Princeton, who had the idea to separate spherical power from toricity and multifocality to reduce the inventory of lenses at a clinic. InfiniteVision took that concept to the next level by creating the adjustable Precisight® platform. “With the potential to make lifelong adjustments, patients no longer have to settle for sub-optimal visual outcome after cataract removal. Our personalized solutions have been designed to suit each patient’s personal preferences and anatomical precondition, accommodating for the inevitable vision changes that happen over time,” says Laue. 

The Precisight® IOL is currently only available in Europe with a monofocal aspheric optic. Toric and multifocal optics are in development.
