The Tecnis Eyhance IOL, a monofocal lens designed to improve both intermediate and far distance vision, is now available in Europe, Johnson & Johnson Vision announced in a press release.

The IOL allows cataract surgery patients to achieve improved intermediate vision by extending the depth of focus. Patients experience improved intermediate vision compared with a standard aspheric monofocal IOL, as well as 20/20 distance vision.

In addition, the IOL can reduce the incidence of glare, halo or starburst compared with the Tecnis one-piece IOL, the release said. Patients report that the IOL allows them to perform certain activities with greater ease, such as walking on uneven surfaces.

The IOL has a CE mark and is now commercially available in the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Spain and Germany.
