Hydrophobic IOL MicroPure 1


Glistening-free hydrophobic acrylic IOL

Some hydrophobic IOLs on the market are developing glistenings after implantation which could impact on the vision quality.1

Glistenings are favored by:

  • the cast-molding process (compared to lathe-cutting process)
  • environment changes (dry conditioned and implanted in an aqueous environment)
  • the lack of control of water content 

PodEye is guaranteed 100% glistening-free thanks to:

  • the lathe-cutting process instead of the cast-molding process
  • its packaging in water to avoid major medium changes during implantation
  • the equilibrium of water content in the material

Injection system for microincision

PodEye can be implanted through a 2.0 mm incision with the Medicel Accuject injector:

* From 0D to +24.5D with Accuject 2.0

* From +25D to +35D with Accuject 2.2

Microwaves Technology

The Microwaves Technology limits the tendency of the hydrophobic haptics to stick together after injection
