Our experts appreciate the straightforward technology behind the IC-8 IOL, which reliably provides up to 3.00 D of EDOF, accommodates 1.50 D corneal astigmatism, and forgives refractive target misses. When implanted monolaterally with a monofocal IOL – the IC-8 IOL preserves distance vision binocularity while achieving good near and intermediate vision.
At the same time, the IC-8 IOL avoids typical issues associated with multifocal lens designs while improving vision quality in a range of patients. Cases that benefit from the IC-8 IOL include traditional cataract eyes, patients with a successful history with monovision, eyes with a high risk of a missed refractive target, and those who do not qualify for trifocals. IC-8 IOL recipients typically report high quality vision across a continuous depth of focus up to 3.00 D range of 20/40 vision with no significant issues under dim light conditions.
Furthermore, although taking refraction requires use of the mid-point or red/green methods, in all other respects post-surgical management of the IC-8 IOL eye does not significantly differ from eyes with other IOLs: for example, YAG capsulotomies, retinal imaging by OCT, and retinal surgery can all be performed substantially as normal. In summary, the experts report that the IC-8 IOL meets and exceeds their expectations.
