Title: ANTERIOR CAPSULE DEFLECTOR RIDGE
Abstract:
An accommodating intraocular lens (1) comprising one or more anterior ridge protrusions (5,6) on the plate haptics (4) designed to provide a space in front of the lens optic (2), to allow it to move forward with accommodation, by stretching its connections to the opposing plate haptics, to provide the patient with seamless vision from distance to near. The lens is designed to separate and prevent fibrosis of the anterior capsular rim with the posterior capsule where it surrounds the optic.
