The Technology

sponsored by AcuFocus

The IC-8 one-piece hydrophobic acrylic IOL is designed to compensate for the focal consequences of peripheral defocused light, thereby enabling correction of presbyopia with a broad, continuous range of focus (Figure 1). 

Figure 1. (A) In the presbyopic eye, the natural lens cannot compensate for defocused peripheral light that degrades image quality and range of vision. (B) The IC-8 IOL uses small aperture technology disrupting peripheral light rays and allowing central focused light to reach the retina resulting in clear vision across a broad range of distances.
