What Is Claimed Is:
1. An inserter for inserting an IOL having an optic with a peripheral edge and at least one curved haptic extending from said optic into an eye, said inserter
comprising:
a) an inserter body having a proximal end and a distal tip and a longitudinal passageway extending therebetween;
b) a plunger for telescoping within said longitudinal passageway of said
body, said plunger having a plunger shaft extending between a proximal end and a distal plunger tip, said plunger including a recess between said plunger tip and a curvilinear ramp foπned in said plunger shaft;
whereby the at least one haptic of said IOL may be positioned in said recess during delivery through said inserter.
2. The inserter of claim 1 wherein the curve of said at least one haptic matches the curve of the said curvilinear ramp whereby the trailing haptic may engage said curvilinear ramp in abutting relationship thereto.
3. The inserter of claim 1 wherein said plunger tip is bifurcated and includes a slot for engaging the optic periphery.
4. The inserter of claim 3 wherein said curvilinear ramp extends along a plane which lies parallel to the plane in which said slot lies.
5. The inserter of claim 2 wherein said plunger tip is bifurcated and includes a slot for engaging the optic periphery.
6. The inserter of claim 5 wherein said curvilinear ramp extends along a plane which lies parallel to the plane in which said slot lies.

7. A plunger for telescoping and pushing an IOL through the longitudinal
passageway of an IOL inserter and into an eye, said plunger having a plunger shaft extending between a proximal end and a distal plunger tip, said plunger including a recess between said plunger tip and a curvilinear ramp formed in said plunger shaft;
whereby a haptic of an IOL may be positioned in said recess during delivery of the IOL through the inserter.
8. The inserter of claim 7 wherein the curve of the IOL haptic matches the curve of the said curvilinear ramp whereby the haptic may engage said curvilinear ramp in abutting relationship thereto.
9. The inserter of claim 7 wherein said plunger tip is bifurcated and includes a slot for engaging the optic periphery.
10. The inserter of claim 8 wherein said curvilinear ramp extends along a plane which lies parallel to the plane in which said slot lies.
11. The inserter of claim 10 wherein said plunger tip is bifurcated and includes a slot for engaging the optic periphery.
12. The inserter of claim 9 wherein said curvilinear ramp extends along a plane which lies parallel to the plane in which said slot lies.
