Here's a look at this technology, its long-term international results and the injector that makes the whole package work.The Synchrony is the first dual-optic accommodating IOL, and is a single-piece silicone lens that has a high-powered 32 D anterior optic joined to a rear minus-powered optic by flexible silicone spring-like struts.
The main outcome measures were postoperative distance uncorrected and best corrected visual acuity; near uncorrected, distance corrected, and near corrected visual acuity; and accommodative range based on defocus curves.In the search for the best presbyopia treatment, a lot of attention has been paid to multifocal and diffractive intraocular lenses, while there's been little movement on the accommodating IOL front.That may change in the next year, as the clinical investigators and company researchers at Visiogen are readying their Phase III data for the Synchrony dual-optic accommodating IOL for submission to the Food and Drug Administration.Uncorrected near visual acuity was 20/40 or better in all eyes.With distance correction, 23 eyes (96%) had an acuity of 20/40 or better at near. Marques provides an overview of current methods for achieving refractive outcomes with IOL implants and presents the concept of dual optic accommodating IOL. Marques shares his technique for implanting the Synchrony IOL (Visiogen, Irvine, CA).
