Title (EN) INTRAOCULAR LENS ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE A LENTILLE INTRA-OCULAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) An intraocular lens assembly (10) used to replace the natural lens in the eye. The assembly (10) comprises a preferably soft optical lens (16), a resilient housing (14) having an aperture (30) through which the lens (16) can be inserted into or removed from the housing (14), and a resilient support (12) comprising a central ring (18) coupled to the housing (14) and a pair of support arms (20, 22) extending outwardly from the ring (18). The assembly (10) is readily foldable for insertion into the eye through a small incision, can support the soft optical lens (16) without sagging and distortion, and allows the optical lens (16) to be easily replaced.
(FR) Ensemble à lentille intra-oculaire (10) servant à remplacer le cristallin naturel de l'÷il. L'ensemble (10) comporte une lentille optique de préférence souple (16), un logement élastique (14) possédant une ouverture (30) à travers laquelle la lentille (16) peut être introduite dans le logement (14), ou en être retirée, ainsi qu'un support élastique (12) comprenant un anneau central (18) couplé au logement (14) et une paire de bras de support (20, 22) s'étendant vers l'extérieur à partir de l'anneau (18). L'ensemble peut être plié facilement afin qu'il puisse être introduit dans l'÷il à travers une petite incision, peut supporter la lentille optique souple (16) sans fléchir ni se déformer, et permet le remplacement facile de la lentille optique (16).
