Title (EN) AN IMPROVED ACCOMMODATING INTRAOCULAR LENS
(FR) LENTILLES INTRAOCULAIRES D'ACCOMMODATION AMELIOREES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An intraocular lens arrangement having positive (4) and negative (5) lens elements which move during the eye's accommodation response in order to improve the image on the retina (3) of objects viewed by the eye over a wide range of distances. The positive and negative lens elements either can be linked mechanically to constrain their relative movements or not be linked. The lenses are positioned by an operating surgeon following cataract extraction in either the eye's ciliary sulcus or lens capsule. Alternatively, one of the lenses may be inserted into an eye that already has a lens implanted therein to further improve a person's vision.
(FR)L'invention concerne des lentilles intraoculaires comportant une lentille positive et une lentille négative qui bougent lorsque l'oeil s'accommode pour rendre plus nette sur la rétine l'image d'un objet observé sur une large gamme de distances. Ces lentilles positive et négative peuvent être soit fixées mécaniquement pour restreindre leurs mouvements relatifs, soit non fixées. Après extraction de la cataracte, le chirurgien implante ces lentilles dans le sillon ciliaire ou dans la capsule du cristallin. Dans une variante, une des lentilles peut être introduite dans un oeil qui contient déjà une lentille implantée pour améliorer davantage la vision du patient.
