Lentis Mplus Toric IOL
Oculentis GmbH (Berlin, Germany) announced the launch of its Lentis Mplus toric lens, occurring at the World Ophthalmology Congress in Berlin. According to the company, this multifocal toric IOL combines the presbyopia-correcting features of the patented Lentis Mplus IOL, which is characterized by its sector- shaped near-vision segment, with the astigmatic correction of the Lentis Tplus technology. Tailor-made solutions are available for patients with both presbyopia and corneal astigmatism. The unique sector-shaped nearvision segment of the Lentis Mplus toric eliminates image jumps and loss of contrast sensitivity, in particular reflections often experienced in twilight or glare conditions, the company said. Made of the company's HydroSmart acrylic material, the lens provides pupil independence, aberration neutrality, a high degree of rotational stability, and a near addition of 3.00 D.
