Title
(EN) APPARATUS FOR INSERTION OF AN INTRAOCULAR LENS
(FR) APPAREIL POUR L'INSERTION D'UNE LENTILLE INTRAOCULAIRE
Abstract
(EN)
This invention discloses devices for use with an ophthalmologic insertor apparatus. In one embodiment, the device is a flexible, stretchable sleeve holder adapted to fit over a deformable sleeve that houses an implant. The sleeve holder facilitates loading of an implant into the sleeve by providing a suitable gripping surface. Application of a compressive force to the sleeve holder further allows the implant to be immobilized within the sleeve. After loading of the implant into the sleeve, the holder may be used as a collar or hub to secure the sleeve to an insertor hand-piece. Methods for loading implants into delivery sleeves, methods for attaching sleeves to insertors, and methods for delivering implants to an incision are also disclosed.

L'invention concerne des dispositifs utilisés avec un appareil d'insertion ophthalmologique. Selon un mode de réalisation, le dispositif consiste en un support de manchon étirable, flexible conçu pour se fixer sur un manchon déformable qui abrite un implant. Le support de manchon facilite l'introduction d'un implant dans le manchon en offrant une surface de prise adaptée. L'application d'une force de compression sur le support du manchon permet ensuite à l'implant d'être immobilisé dans le manchon. Après introduction de l'implant dans le manchon, le support peut être utilisé comme un collier ou un embout servant à fixer le manchon sur une pièce tenue à main, de l'appareil d'insertion. Cette invention concerne également des procédés d'arrimage d'implants dans des manchons d'acheminement, des procédés d'attache des manchons aux dispositifs d'insertion, et des procédés d'acheminement d'implants vers une incision.
