High-quality vision and a spectacle-free life
The Lumina offers sharp vision at distance, intermediate and near without compromising contrast sensitivity and with no irritating side-effects such as haloes and glare.
Monofocal IOLs provide a spectacle trade-off
Standard monofocal IOLs are the accepted remedy for cataract, but monofocals offer sharp vision at only one single distance, generally at far. So, the patient can, for example, drive a car without spectacles but for intermediate vision, as in computer tasks, and for near vision, as in reading, the patient is dependent on progressive or on multiple separate spectacles.
Current multifocal and EDOF IOLs are a “low quality” compromise
These IOLs provide multiple foci and thus mix images of objects at different distances. This mix creates undesired side effects such as diminished contrast sensitivity and haloes. Multifocal IOLs can decrease the dependence on spectacles but at the cost of lowering the quality and sharpness of vision.
The Lumina, in contrast to existing solutions, provides high-quality vision and a life without spectacles
allows for spectacle-free vision in daily life
- Lumina patients do not need spectacles to engage in daily tasks that require distance vision (as in driving a car) or near vision (as in reading a newspaper)
provides a broad accommodative range
- Accommodative range of 2-5 dioptres
- Visual Acuity comparable to standard monofocal lenses
provides excellent quality of vision
- The Lumina’s contrast sensitivity is equal to that of monofocal IOLs
- Loss of contrast sensitivity is a limitation of multifocal lenses
prevents undesired optical side effects
- The Lumina does not cause haloes and glare as multifocal lenses do
- No negative dysphotopsia (unwanted images)
- Implanted outside the capsular bag to prevent effects of capsular bag shrinkage
- Posterior capsular opacification (PCO) can be remedied in a standard manner with YAG treatment (YAG is a standard short laser treatment to remedy PCO)
