Bausch + Lomb launches preloaded IOLs in Europe
Bausch + Lomb has launched its first extended depth of focus IOL and a new monofocal IOL in Europe.
“LuxSmart and LuxGood feature an innovative premium optic design and [pure refractive optics] technology that reduces dysphotopsia, a common phenomenon that can occur in some premium IOLs and compromise a patient’s vision,” Thomas Appio, president, Bausch + Lomb/International, said in a press release.
Both the LuxSmart, which is the extended depth of focus IOL, and the LuxGood, which is the monofocal, feature a preloaded delivery system. The IOLs are made with a proprietary acrylic hydrophobic cross-linked polymer material with four-point fixation haptics designed to “achieve lens centration, rotational stability, posterior capsule opacification resistance and greater refractive predictability,” the release said.
A toric version is expected to become available later this year.
