SIFI announces the launch of the Well Fusion system and the Mini Well Proxa IOL, offering a novel solution that provides cataract patients the option to treat presbyopia with spectacle-free uninterrupted high-quality vision at all distances and in all lighting conditions.
SIFI has developed Mini Well Proxa building upon the clinical outcomes of Mini Well, 1-5 SIFI’s premium IOL launched in 2016, which demonstrated a broad extension of the depth of focus and excellent quality of vision, according to a company news release.
Mini Well Proxa is designed to be implanted in the non-dominant eye, alongside with Mini Well in the dominant eye, to bridge the near vision gap typically associated with extended depth of focus IOLs, while continuing to ensure high quality vision at all distances and in all lighting conditions. Mini Well and Mini Well Proxa IOLs share the same EDOF platform based on the distribution of spherical aberrations of opposite sign in the central part of the optics, a SIFI proprietary and patented technology in presbyopia-correcting IOLs.
Mini Well Proxa is now commercially available in Italy, Romania, and Spain. Other European countries will follow throughout 2021.
“We are excited to introduce Well Fusion, a first-in-kind technology that has shown–throughout product and early clinical development—the true potential to bring together the best of the current gold standards in cataract refractive surgery, EDOF and Trifocal IOLs,” Fabrizio Chines, SIFI’s Chairman and CEO, said in a company news release. “We believe this represent a remarkable step forward in the quest to offer ophthalmologists and their patients an optimal surgical option for presbyopia correction.”
