The AkkoLens Accommodating Intraocular lens

The ‘holy grail’ of intraocular lens development is an IOL that can both restoresight and allow the patient to focus without glasses is an ‘accommodating intraocularlens’. The Lumina offers high visual sharpness, accommodation and contrastsensitivity comparable to a high quality monofocal lens.

New lens gets results

The Lumina retained significant objective and subjective accommodation at 12 and 24 months after surgery, reports Jorge Alió, presenting at the American Academy of Ophthalmology 2017 Annual Meeting in New Orleans, USA.

Visual Outcomes and Accommodative Response of the Lumina Accommodative Intraocular Lens.

The Lumina restores the visual function, accommodation, and contrast sensitivity after cataract surgery with no effect on contrast sensitivity.

The Lumina lens is positioned in the ciliary muscle which drives the lens directly and the Lumina provides up to 4D of accommodative The lens is implanted, suture-free, with a standard butterfly cartridge through a 2.8mm incision. Patients see sharply near, intermediate and far and visual acuity and contrast sensitivity are comparable to a high‐quality monofocal lens.

What is New in IOL Technology?

The Lumina (Akkolens) has demonstrated accommodation in more than 50 eyes with one year of follow-up. This two-element varifocal lens is also designed for sulcus placement. It changes focal powers when its elements shift in the plane perpendicular to the optical axis.

Cubic optical elements for an accommodative intraocular lens.

A new accommodative intraocular lens based on a two-element varifocal Alvarez lens consists of an anterior element combining a spherical lens for refractive power with a cubic surface for the varifocal effect, and a posterior element with a cubic surface only. The focus changes when the elements shift in opposite directions in a plane perpendicular to the optical axis.

Other lenses that are in the pipeline include the Synchrony (Abbott Medical Optics, AMO, Santa, Ana, Calif.), NuLens (NuLens Ltd., Israel), the AkkoLens Lumina (AkkoLens International, the Netherlands), and the Electro-active AutoFocal Intraocular Lens (Elenza, Roanoke, Va.). All have varying diopters of accommodation.
