PROVEN, EVERYDAY EXCELLENCE

The IOL you choose is the vision your patients take with them. Give them the excellent outcomes they deserve with the sharpest vision, enhanced functionality and long-term sustainability from the TECNIS® Monofocal 1-Piece IOL.

Also available with the safety and efficiency of the TECNIS iTec® Preloaded Delivery System.

Empower your surgical outcomes with the TECNIS® Monofocal 3-Piece IOL (PDF).

SHARPEST VISION

The TECNIS® Monofocal 1-Piece IOL is engineered for a higher standard of optical excellence so you can leave each patient with the sharp, high-quality vision they deserve.

What does proven optical excellence mean for your patient outcomes?

  • 70% of patients had best corrected binocular distance visual acuities (BCDVA) 20/16 or better1
  • 96% of patients had BCDVA of 20/20 or better2
  • Spherical aberration corrected to essentially zero for outstanding visual performance1
  • Reduced chromatic aberration for excellent image contrast2

TECNIS® IOLs provide 14–35% improved image contrast from chromatic aberration reduction* and correction of spherical aberration to essentially zero.3

Best-Focus MTF3 White Light MTF (c/mm)


Up to 35% improved image contrast with a large pupil (5 mm).

Modular Transfer Function (MTF) is a measure of the amount of contrast transferred by the optics in a visual system. The higher the MTF value, the more contrast transferred to the image, resulting in higher image contrast. AcrySof is a trademark of Novartis AG Corp.

ENHANCED FUNCTIONALITY

Optimized for peak functional vision, TECNIS® IOLs deliver high-quality, real-world performance so your patients can get back to their daily activities, even in low-light conditions. In fact, they’re shown to improve patient safety under low-visibility conditions.2

Our lenses are likely to have meaningful safety benefits for elderly drivers as well as drivers and pedestrians sharing the road. TECNIS® IOLs improve functional vision, which may also increase patient safety in other low-visibility situations.2

LONG-TERM SUSTAINABILITY

Unlike another leading IOL, TECNIS® IOL material is not associated with glistenings,5-9 which can inhibit your patients’ vision. Glistenings cause light scatter, which can result in a reduction in image contrast.5-10

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR TECNIS® MONOFOCAL 1-PIECE IOL

Rx Only

INDICATIONS

TECNIS® 1-Piece Lenses are indicated for the visual correction of aphakia in adult patients in whom a cataractous lens has been removed by extracapsular cataract extraction. These devices are intended to be placed in the capsular bag.

PRECAUTIONS

Do not resterilize the lens. Most sterilizers are not equipped to sterilize the soft acrylic material without producing undesirable side effects. Do not soak or rinse the intraocular lens with any solution other than sterile balanced salt solution or sterile normal saline. Do not store the lens in direct sunlight or at a temperature greater than 113°F (45°C). Do not autoclave the intraocular lens. Please refer to the specific instructions for use provided with the insertion instrument or system for the amount of time the IOL can remain folded before the IOL must be discarded. When the insertion system is used improperly, the haptics of the TECNIS® 1-Piece Lens may become damaged.

WARNINGS

Physicians considering lens implantation should weigh the potential risk/benefit ratio for any conditions described in the TECNIS® 1-Piece IOL Directions for Use that could increase complications or impact patient outcomes. These conditions include recurrent severe anterior or posterior segment inflammation or uveitis; patients in whom the intraocular lens may affect the ability to observe, diagnose, or treat posterior segment diseases; surgical difficulties at the time of cataract extraction, which may increase the potential for complications (e.g., persistent bleeding, significant iris damage, uncontrolled positive pressure or significant vitreous prolapse or loss); a compromised eye due to previous trauma or developmental defects in which appropriate support of the IOL is not possible; circumstances that would result in damage to the endothelium during implantation; suspected microbial infection; or patients in whom neither the posterior capsule nor the zonules are intact enough to provide support for the IOL. Children under the age of 2 years are not suitable candidates for intraocular lenses. The TECNIS® 1-Piece IOL should not be placed in the ciliary sulcus.

ADVERSE EVENTS

In 3.3% of patients, reported adverse events of cataract surgery with the 1-Piece IOL included macular edema. Other reported reactions occurring in less than 1% of patients were secondary surgical intervention (pars plana vitrectomy with membrane peel) and lens exchange (due to torn lens haptic).

INDICATIONS AND IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION FOR THE TECNIS iTec® PRELOADED DELIVERY SYSTEM

INDICATIONS

AMO TECNIS® 1-piece lenses are indicated for the visual correction of aphakia in adult patients in whom a cataractous lens has been removed by extracapsular cataract extraction. These devices are intended to be placed in the capsular bag.

WARNINGS

Physicians considering lens implantation should weigh the potential risk/benefit ratio for any conditions described in the Directions for Use that could increase complications or impact patient outcomes. Do not attempt to disassemble, modify or alter the device or any of its components.
