Bausch + Lomb has launched its new enVista glistening-free, hydrophobic acrylic IOL. The enVista lens represents a significant step forward in IOL technology. Bausch + Lomb announced the introduction of the enVista MX60E with StableFlex technology, the company’s next-generation hydrophobic. In mid, the Food and Drug Administration approved the enVista hydrophobic acrylic IOL (Bausch + Lomb). This lens is the only.

Glistenings and surface light scattering in intraocular lenses.

Images courtesy Peter Heiner, MD. A new coated inserter for the enVista lens was recently released. These glistenings form within the superficial layer of an IOL, potentially causing some of the light coming into the eye to be scattered.
Stephenson was working through a 2. This lens is made envitsa a proprietary highly cross-linked acrylic co-polymer. Contact Us About Beye.
I selected an enVista IOL model MX60 for its zero spherical aberration, and the lens was easily implanted in the capsular bag. Of these patients, 25 are six weeks or more postop.

Additionally the patients are experiencing less glare and postoperative complication. Stephenson, some lenses can be damaged by the inserter or forceps, but the enVista IOL resists abrasions. And lastly, this monofocal IOL is truly glistenings-free which is highly valuable when referring optometrists see these patients in the postoperative comanagment period.
Multiple factors continue to push ASCs to the forefront as a better alternative to the hospital. She also notes that the lens does not move once it is in the eye. The lens is scratch free so technicians loading the lens cannot even accidentally put a scratch in the optic. Researchers found no evidence that contrast sensitivity was affected by the glistenings. Glistenings, caused by fluid-filled microvacuoles that can form uol an IOL, are abated by hydrating the lens to equilibrium water content and packaging the lens in 0.
Stephenson was one of the first ophthalmologists to implant the enVista lens in the United States outside of the pilot study.
Glistenings not only present an aesthetic issue post-surgery for surgeons, but they can impact visual function. If the lens loses clarity, a cataract jol, and vision deteriorates. This is my favorite lens.

The viscoelastic can be easily removed from behind the optic during the controlled unfolding of the enVista IOL.
Wiley, MD William F.
Optic Diameter mm 6. After decades of not much change, microscopes are beginning to change the way surgeons operate.
The aspheric aberration-free optic allows for pristine postop visual outcomes and is especially helpful in post laser vision correction patients. This IOL is a pleasure for both the surgeon and patients. Image courtesy Peter Heiner, MD. She lol the WaveTec Vision Ora system in the envistaa room to help improve her outcomes. Slow unfolding can be annoying but not a clinical issue. The new insertion system was designed to facilitate implantation through incisions as small as 2. Pearls and Pitfalls Sumitra S.
J Cataract Refract Surg. The IOL is very easy to implant, very safe, and very comfortable for the surgeon.
The surgeon is not afraid to break the posterior capsule. The enVista lens two weeks postoperatively. Stephenson has implanted 50 lenses to date. At-a-Glance Aspheric optics with a sharp edge design Power ranges available from 0.
The lens is 4 percent water, so it is in equilibrium with the environment in saline, which means that there is no water movement in and out of the IOL.
To date, I have only needed to YAG eight eyes, which corresponds to a 3. The Brightness Acuity Tester score was just more evnista one-half line lower than the Snellen acuity. Glistenings are fluid-filled microvacuoles that form in the optic of the IOL in an jol environment. Seeking the Greatest Biocompatibility. Seventy percent of those patients are within 0. Polishing the anterior subcapsular epithelium off while envisra unfolding makes efficient use of the time.
Nice and good visual outcomes.
Heiner also tested best-corrected visual acuity. Larger studies are needed to determine the best dosage and method of delivery of current experimental therapies.
