Alcon obtains CE mark for UltraSert preloaded delivery system for AcrySof IQ aspheric IOL

July 2, 2015

Alcon has received European CE mark approval for the AcrySof IQ aspheric IOL with the UltraSert preloaded delivery system for cataract surgery, according to a press release.

The single-use delivery system combines the control of a manually loaded device with a disposable preloaded injector. The system uses the TensionGlide plunger, designed for controlled delivery of the IOL into the capsular bag, and the Depth Guard nozzle, designed to preserve the size of the original corneal incision, the release said.
