Title (EN) MULTI-COMPONENT ACCOMMODATIVE INTRAOCULAR LENS WITH COMPRESSIBLE HAPTIC
(FR) LENTILLE INTRAOCULAIRE ACCOMMODATIVE A COMPOSANTS MULTIPLES AVEC STRUCTURE HAPTIQUE COMPRESSIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A multi-component accommodating intraocular lens (A-IOL) for implantation in a capsular bag of an eye having an optical axis, includes an anterior optical element and a posterior component that are connected by at least one compressible haptic. The compressible haptic, by definition, has a deformation feature that is resiliently deformable. The deformation feature allows the nominal overall diameter of the A-IOL to dynamically vary over a selected range in response to a capsular bag dimension that is different than that of an average population value, or in response to a change in the size and/or shape of the capsular bag due to post-operative capsular bag shrinkage, without substantially changing the separation distance between the anterior and posterior components of the A-IOL absent an intended accommodating force. Methods are also disclosed.
(FR) Une lentille intraoculaire accommodative (A-IOL) à composants multiples devant être implantée dans le sac capsulaire de l'oeil et possédant un axe optique, comprend un élément optique antérieur et un composant postérieur reliés par au moins une structure haptique compressible. La structure haptique compressible, par définition, possède une caractéristique de déformation qui permet une déformation élastique. La caractéristique de déformation permet de faire varier dynamiquement le diamètre global nominal de la lentille intraoculaire (A-IOL) suivant une plage sélectionnée, conformément à une dimension de sac capsulaire différente de celle d'une valeur de population moyenne, ou conformément à un changement de taille et/ou de forme subi par le sac capsulaire suite au rétrécissement postopératoire du sac capsulaire, sans modification sensible de la distance de séparation entre les composants antérieur et postérieur de la lentille intraoculaire (A-IOL), en l'absence d'une force d'accommodation cible. Par ailleurs, l'invention concerne des procédés correspondants.
