A dual optical accommodating foldable intraocular lens
Accommodating IOLs hold the promise of providing good distance, intermediate, and near acuity with fewer optical aberrations than currently available multifocal IOLs.Dual-optic accommodating IOLs provide greater accommodative amplitudes than single-optic accommodative lenses but are also slightly more challenging to implant.A look at the five-year outcomes with the lens has shown that all implanted subjects were better than 20/40 at distance, intermediate, and near vision tests.The Synchrony lens is designed to replicate the natural lens by increasing its power when viewing near targets and reducing it when looking at a distant object.
Ossma-Gomez has broad familiarity with this lens and gives his tips and pearls for maximizing outcomes.
Likewise, contrast sensitivity was higher in all lighting situations at all frequencies in the Synchrony than the Re STOR.
That’s not to say the Synchrony is without potential side effects.
It is, to my knowledge, the first three-dimensional bag-filling IOL.
Since light is not divided into multiple foci, Synchrony yields contrast sensitivity curves comparable to those of monofocal IOLs.
