posterior accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) is intended for primary implantation in the capsular bag of the eye for the visual correction of aphakia secondary to the removal of a cataractous lens in adult patients with and without presbyopia.
provides approximately one diopter of monocular accommodation which allows for near, intermediate, and distance vision without spectacles.

Rotation of toric lenses away from their intended axis can reduce their effectiveness, and misalignment can increase postoperative refractive cylinder.
Do not resterilize this intraocular lens by any method.
Do not store lenses at temperatures over 45°C (113°F).
46.5 percent of non-toric controls (In terms of acuity, 97.8 percent of the patients could see 20/40 or better at distance and intermediate postop, and 70 percent had 20/40 uncorrected near vision. The accommodative lens might not produce as much near vision as a multifocal, though, so it’s a trade-off.” “Surgeons use the Trulign toric calculator [ https://trulign.toriccalculator.com] to plan the case,” says Dr. “There, you enter the customary info for toric IOL calculations, including keratometric data with steep and flat corneal axis, the IOL power and the location of your planned incision.
I like to work on the steep axis but I think it’s important to realize that if you place your incision on a vertical axis the surgically induced astigmatism will be slightly greater than if you work horizontally.” Dr.
