Precizon Presbyopic IOL - First impressions one year after the official launchby OPHTEC on 23 September 2019
During the 2018 ESCRS, OPHTEC has launched a new IOL concept for the correction of presbyopia with an optic using the patented Continuous Transitional Focus (CTF) technology. We are now delighted to share the findings of several surgeons spread around the globe. Find out why they are using the Precizon Presbyopic lenses.
Dr José L. Güell, Barcelona
Instituto de Microcirugía Ocular (IMO), Spain
'What I like most about the Precizon Presbyopic NVA is the IOL design of the platform, and the very low incidence of undesirable optical phenomena.'
Dr Camille Bosc
Groupe OphtAlliance, France
'I have been using the Precizon Presbyopic implants 0 and 1 for almost a year in cataract patients requesting multifocal implants as well as for refractive lens surgery. Excellent results have been achieved for distance vision and intermediate vision, with very good near vision too. Fewer patients experience halos compared with trifocal implants. The Precizon Presbyopic IOL is my first-choice premium implant for people who require distance vision or who drive a lot.'
Dr Juan Irungaray
Centro de Ojos Lanus, Argentina
'These days, we are registering and operating on ever younger patients, whose IOLs will remain implanted in their eyes for much longer. Patient needs are different now. I believe that the Precizon Presbyopic lens - which significantly decreases dysphotopsia and tolerates pupil dilation - is an innovative platform that represents real progress for the future.'
Dr Tiago Monteiro
Hospital de Braga and CUF Porto, Portugal
'The Precizon CTF IOL is an outstanding, innovative optical design - a premium IOL targeting cataract and presbyopia correction. From our clinical experience, the absence of dysphotopic phenomena - such as glare and halos - is a major advantage of the Precizon Presbyopic CTF IOL. The refractive symmetric zonal distribution inside the optical zone delivers an excellent balance between optical quality and spectacle independence. The satisfaction rate of the cohort of patients treated in our department is as high as for any diffractive IOL. And only 10 % of them use a spectacle prescription for prolonged small optotype reading.'
Dr Andrea Russo
Centro Oculistico Bresciano, Italy
'Precizon Presbyopic NVA IOL is one of my favourite IOLs for patients seeking freedom from wearing glasses. I have implanted this lens in very active patients, increasing their independence and exceeding their expectations. The lens is very easy to implant and allows exceptionally enhanced vision for all distances, with low rates of photic phenomena.'
Dr Felix Perez
Clinica El Avila, Venezuela
'Implanting the Precizon Presbyopic lens in my patients has resulted in highly satisfactory intermediate vision and excellent quality in distance vision. Patients experience almost no manifestations of glare or night halos and all manage to read Jaeger 1 in photopic conditions.'
Dr Harras Mölder
'Precizon Presbyopic NVA is the sixth model of multifocal IOLs that I have used in my practice and currently my favourite. It looks natural in situ when viewed through the slit lamp, and patients see the world more naturally too.'
Dr Joo choun-Ki
CK St.Mary’s Eye Clinic, South Korea
'The Precizon Presbyopic lens significantly lowers the incidence of glare and halos compared with other multifocal IOLs - a crucial difference that has minimised patient complaints of such dysphotopic phenomena after surgery. Precizon Presbyopic enables a transition in focus between eleven distinct segments (five for distance and six for near vision) within the optical zones. Smoother transition allows for more rapid neuroadaptation.'
Dr Nico Trap
Oogkliniek Heuvelrug, The Netherlands
'The Precizon Presbyopic NVA lens from OPHTEC is the precision tool to achieve optimal spectacle independence after cataract surgery. I wish the patient and doctor to benefit from this innovative tool.'
Dr Rui Martinho
Hospital Lusíadas Porto, Portugal
'My experience with Precizon Presbyopic NVA has been very positive. I take great care when selecting candidates for multifocal lenses - I want all patients in my clinic to be happy with the outcomes. Precizon Presbyopic has definitely worked for them: no complaints of dysphotopic phenomena, good far and intermediate visual acuity, and very satisfactory near acuity too. Patients are satisfied - and so is the surgeon!'
Dr Miguel Lume
Centro Hospitalar Universitario do Porto and
Hospital Lusíadas Porto, Portugal
'The Precizon Presbyopic NVA lens represents an important evolution compared to other lenses. Patients do not complain about dysphotopsia and can achieve excellent functional performance at all distances, particularly far and intermediate distances. For the patient who does not want to compromise quality of vision, the Precizon
Presbyopic NVA lens is an excellent option.'
Dr José Miguel Varas
Centro Oftálmico Varas Samaniego, Ecuador
'What I like most about the CFT design is that when I ask patients about photic phenomena, they don’t understand the question, in marked contrast to the concentric bi/trifocal design. Objectively, the transitions are also less noticeable when using the slit lamp.'
Dr João Paulo Macedo
Centro Hospitalar de São João, Portugal
'In my opinion, OPHTEC’s new Precizon Presbyopic NVA lens has enhanced my range of therapeutic options. This new technology - with its different ‘out of the box’ approach - helps me limit and circumvent the eternal problem of halos and glare. Natural, quality vision is what I seek for my patients and this new lens provides precisely that!'
Dr Manuel Domingues
Hospital Luz Póvoa de Varzim, Portugal
'The new Precizon Presbyopic NVA lens stands out because of its platform and innovative optical design with CTF (Continuous Transitional Focus) technology. It has generated very positive results in my surgical practice, where patients are almost universally satisfied. A great advantage is that patients do not complain of dysphotopsia. Their tolerance for nocturnal conditions is good, without complaints of halos or glare. A lens with huge potential - leaving us keenly anticipating the arrival of the toric lens.'
