Les implants multifocaux, ou plutôt bifocaux pour l’immense majorité d’entre eux, représentent bien évidemment une option très largement utilisée et leurs résultats sont infiniment meilleurs que ceux obtenus avec les implants multifocaux de première génération.The ciliary muscle, ciliary zonules and lens capsule keep the lens suspended in its proper position inside the eye for clear vision.In a normal eye (without presbyopia or cataracts), this dynamic process of accommodation adjusts the focusing power of the eye by changing the thickness of the eye's natural lens.iii) a hinge-forming elbow spaced intermediate the gusset and the widened portion, the elbow sized and shaped to allow the haptic to flex while minimizing buckling and vaulting of the optic, the elbow being thicker than the gusset and between approximately 0.30 millimeters and 0.60 millimeters thick in cross section.This invention relates generally to the field of intraocular lenses (IOLs) and, more particularly, to foldable IOLs.Louis, Mo., lives with every day, both personally and in his practice.
