(EN) DEVICE FOR HOLDING, FOLDING AND INJECTING AN INTRAOCULAR LENS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MAINTIEN DE PLI ET D'INJECTION D'UNE LENTILLE INTRAOCULAIRE
Abstract
(EN)

An injector (1) for folding and injecting into the eye of a patient a flexible
intraocular lens, the injector comprising
an assembly of an injection nozzle (202), a lens compartment that holds an
unfolded flexible intraocular lens (400) and is in
communication with the injection nozzle, an injector body (3) communicating
with the lens compartment and a plunger (2) that is
inserted in the free end of the injector body, wherein lens compartment and
injector body comprise a mechanism whereby the lens is
first folded by forces compressing the lens in a non-axial direction in
response to an axial movement of the plunger over a first
distance and is subsequently expelled from the injector through the injection
nozzle in response to an axial movement of the
plunger over a second distance.
