AcuFocus Announces Extended Diopter Range for the IC-8 Small Aperture IOL

Irvine, Calif. – July 28, 2020 –  The IC-8® IOL is a clear, aspheric monofocal lens with an embedded mini-ring or pinhole in the center. Utilizing small aperture technology, this novel lens is designed to increase a patient’s natural range of vision by protecting central organized light rays that enter the eye and restricting peripheral light rays that degrade image quality and range of focus.

“Having the IC-8 IOL in my practice has provided an exceptional option for my patients who are looking for spectacle independence,’” says Professor Sathish Srinivasan, cataract and refractive surgery specialist at University Hospital Ayr, Scotland, and Medical Director of Ayrshire Eye Clinic. “With the expanded power range, the majority of my patients will now be able to access the benefits of small aperture optics.”

Clinical studies demonstrate the IC-8 IOL produces unparalleled visual outcomes that deliver nearly 3.00 D of continuous and uninterrupted range of vision1, compensation for up to 1.50 D of corneal astigmatism1,2, and excellent image quality1.
