· Tecnis a foldable IOL with an aspheric surface and the only IOL to receive FDA approval for claims of improved functional vision, which results in quicker recognition of objects in lower-light conditions. The Tecnis lens was the first aspheric lens designated as a new technology intraocular lens by the U.S. Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS). With this designation, ambulatory surgery centers can receive $50 in additional reimbursement when implanting the Tecnis IOL. The Tecnis lens is available in silicone and acrylic.
· Sensar an acrylic monofocal IOL, with the patented OptiEdge design, intended to reduce post-surgical posterior capsular opacification, in order to lessen the need for subsequent corrective laser procedures, and to reduce the potential for unwanted glare and reflections following implantation.
· ClariFlex a silicone monofocal IOL, also with the OptiEdge design.
