Abstract: front page image
(EN)An intraocular lens is disclosed, with an optic that changes shape in response to a deforming force exerted by the zonules of the eye. A haptic (50, 60, 70, 90,100, 110, 130, 150, 170) supports the optic around its equator and couples the optic to the capsular bag of the eye. Certain haptic features improve the accommodative performance of the haptic, such that compressive/tensile forces may be more efficiently transferred from the haptic to optic. Furthermore, certain aspects also provide enhanced bag-sizing capability so that the IOL better fits within the capsular bag.
(FR)La présente invention concerne une lentille intra-oculaire, dont l'optique change de forme sous l'action d'une force de déformation exercée par les zonula de l'œil. Une partie haptique supporte l'optique autour de son équateur, et couple l'optique au sac capsulaire de l'œil. Certaines caractéristiques de la partie haptique améliorent la performance accommodative de la partie haptique, de telle sorte que des forces de compression/traction peuvent être transférées plus efficacement de la partie haptique à l'optique. En outre, certains aspects fournissent également une capacité améliorée de redimensionnement du sac, de sorte que la lentille intra-oculaire s'adapte mieux dans le sac capsulaire.
