AcrySof® IQ IOL BioMaterial Advantage

Clear Capsules1-3

The unique hydrophobic acrylic polymer of AcrySof® IQ IOLs offers excellent biocompatibility.

Characteristics of Hydrophobic Acrylic IOLs

Comparing material composition and refractive index of hydrophobic acrylic IOLs

The proprietary AcrySof® IOL material features a high-refractive index allowing for strength and foldability.4,5,8

Low Nd:YAG Rates**,10-12

The proprietary AcrySof® IQ IOL material is associated with low Nd:YAG treatment rates as compared to certain competitor IOLs.**


How it works

Lens epithelial cells bind to the lens capsule and the AcrySof® IQ IOL material, creating what has been theorized as a "sandwich effect" that stabilizes the lens in the capsule and reduces the likelihood of the patient needing Nd:YAG laser treatment.1-3,5,13

AcrySof® IQ IOLs exhibit more fibronectin adhesion between IOL and capsule.

Clinical evidence shows that improved capsule adhesion correlates to lower percentage of patients requiring Nd:YAG laser treatment.†,10-12

ACRYSOF® SINGLE-PIECE MONOFOCAL INTRAOCULAR LENSES IMPORTANT PRODUCT INFORMATION

CAUTION: Federal law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.

INDICATIONS: AcrySof® single-piece monofocal intraocular lenses (IOLs) include the AcrySof® IQ Aspheric Natural IOL (Model SN60WF), AcrySof® UV-Absorbing Aspheric IOL (Model SA60WF), AcrySof® Natural IOL (Model SN60AT) and AcrySof® IOL (Model SA60AT). Each IOL is indicated for visual correction of aphakia in adult patients following cataract surgery. These IOLs are intended for replacement in the capsular bag.

WARNINGS/PRECAUTIONS: Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgment should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk/benefit ratio before implanting an IOL in a patient with any of the conditions described in the Directions for Use that accompany each IOL. Caution should be used prior to lens encapsulation to avoid lens decentration or dislocation. Viscoelastic should be removed from the eye at the close of surgery.

Studies have shown that color vision discrimination is not adversely affected in individuals with the AcrySof® Natural IOL (Model SN60AT) and normal color vision. The effect on vision of the AcrySof® Natural IOL in subjects with hereditary color vision defects and acquired color vision defects secondary to ocular disease (e.g. glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, chronic uveitis, and other retinal or optic nerve diseases) has not been studied.

Do not resterilize. Do not store at temperatures over 45° C. Use only sterile irrigating solutions to rinse or soak IOLs.

ATTENTION: Refer to the Directions for Use labeling for each IOL for a complete list of indications, warnings and precautions.
