Ophtec announced the introduction of the Precizon Presbyopic Toric IOL, a spin-off of the Precizon Toric and Precizon Presbyopic. The IOL offers patients the qualities of both models, according to a company news release.
The toric is unique because of its TCT (Transitional Conic Toric) optic, designed to tolerate misalignment, and the presbyopic through its characteristic CTF (Continuous Transitional Focus) segments. CTF provides a smooth transition from far to near, offering a constant defocus between two sharp focal points, delivering excellent near, far and intermediate vision, with low halos and glare, according to Ophtec. TCT and CTF are unique patented technologies and are both provided by this new lens.
“It sounds simple, but that does not mean it is simple from a technical perspective. In terms of optics, it is a unique, advanced technological design. The lens is based on the TCT surface, upon which Precizon Presbyopic’s far/near segments are superimposed,” Erik de Haas, Development Leader of Ophtec’s R&D Department, said in a company news release.
With this new advanced IOL design, Ophtec ensures that patients with astigmatism can also benefit from CTF’s Natural Vision.
The new Precizon Presbyopic Toric IOL is available in May 2021. For more information, visit www.ophtec.com.
