Title (EN) COATED INTRAOCULAR LENS AND THE LIKE
(FR) LENTILLE INTRA-OCULAIRE ENROBEE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An intraocular lens or surgical tool used for eye surgery which is covered with a water-soluble adherent film coating (8, 17 and 18) that has a very slow dissolution rate which maintains at least 40% of the coating on the lens for at least 30 minutes, but not more than 24 hours, when submerged in an aqueous media simulating the surgical environment. Polyvinyl alcohol is an example of such coating that is dissolvable in water and provides swellable outer portions of the coating that are sluffable so as to be self-sacrificing in protecting against both static and sliding contact with a corneal endothelium.
(FR)Une lentille intra-oculaire ou instrument chirurgical utilise en chirurgie oculaire est recouverte d"une pellicule adhesive soluble dans l"eau (8, 17 et 18) dont le taux de dissolution tres faible permet de conserver au moins 40% du revetement sur la lentille pendant au moins 30 minutes, mais pas plus de 24 heures, lorsqu"elle est immergee dans un milieu aqueux simulant un milieu chirurgical. L"alcool polyvinylique est un exemple de pellicule qui se dissout dans l"eau et donne sur la couche des parties externes gonflantes qui sont scarifiables de maniere a s"auto-detruire en protegeant un endothelium corneen de contacts statiques et de glissement.
