Small Aperture Optics

The IC-8 IOL combines the simple principle of small aperture optics with the reliable quality of an aspheric monofocal IOL to deliver a natural range of vision with increased spectacle independence for cataract patients with or without presbyopia.

By embedding an opaque mask with a 1.36 mm central aperture into a one-piece monofocal IOL, the IC-8 IOL can help patients gain nearly 3.00 diopters (D) of depth of focus. This gain is achieved because the central aperture or pinhole filters unfocused peripheral light rays and isolates more focused central rays through the central aperture.1,2

A distinctive feature of the IC-8 IOL is that it only needs to be implanted in one eye. This provides surgeons with the unique opportunity to select a companion lens for the other eye.
