LENS TYPES

Grange Eye Consultants logo

The ARTISAN lens

Artisan Phakic IOL © OPHTEC BV This lens is sometimes referred to as the ‘iris-claw’ lens as it is placed in the anterior chamber of the eye and clips onto the iris so that it remains central in the eye and cannot move. It is therefore able to correct astigmatism as well as extremely high degrees of myopia (up to -23.5 diopters).

 

Artisan Phakic IOL © OPHTEC BV The ARTISAN lens, manufactured in Holland, was first implanted in 1986. However it is the general increased awareness of refractive surgery in recent years, driven by the laser market, that has increased demand for Phakic IOLs as more patients consider the benefits of freedom from glasses and/or contact lenses.

 

The ICARE Lens
ICARE Phakic IOL © Corneal This new lens, made in France, is designed to treat severely short-sighted patients. It is folded and then surgically placed inside the anterior chamber through a narrow incision in the peripheral cornea. The flexible ‘haptics’ hold the lens in place and to aid this it comes in different sizes to fit your eye. Your surgeon will order the lens specifically for you after conducting some precise measurements. The Icare ICARE Phakic IOL © Corneallens is made from a hydrophilic acrylic material containing water which has already been used for many years in ophthalmology.

The ICARE lens is available in powers to treat short-sighted patients with a prescription ranging from -5 to -20 diopters.

 


The PRL Lens
PRL Phakic IOL © CIBA Vision The PRL (Phakic Refractive Lens) is a foldable, silicon, posterior chamber Phakic refractive lens designed to float on the eye's natural lens.
