ZEISS is strengthening its offering of monofocal IOLs for cataract surgeons with the addition of the new CT LUCIA IOL featuring a C-loop design. It is made of glistening-free² material and incorporates ZEISS aspheric aberration correcting optics. It is available with a fully preloaded injector system that guarantees excellent ease of use and smooth unfolding of the IOL. Due to the optical design of the lens, patients benefit from enhanced visual outcomes¹. The lens offers cataract surgeons streamlined workflows before and during the surgery.
"With the most comprehensive IOL portfolio on the market, we can now address the needs of all customer segments,", says Dr. Ludwin Monz, CEO of Carl Zeiss Meditec AG. "The new lens stands for ZEISS standards in optics and quality."
ZEISS already offers a wide variety of hydrophilic IOLs with an extensive diopter range which are suitable for Micro Incision Cataract Surgery (MICS). As a solutions provider, ZEISS is additionally presenting a complete workflow for cataract surgery to its customers. Each individual component meets the highest requirements. In combination, they optimize the workflow – starting from gold standard biometry to visualization solutions for IOL implantation.
The new CT LUCIA is going to be on display at the ZEISS booth during the ESCRS.
