Safe and effective surgery

Artiflex has been on the market for decades and has a long track record of safety, efficiency and reliability. Besides that, it is a reversible procedure.

Great dynamic flow

Artiflex is designed to be far from the natural lens to avoid cataract formation. It offers great flow dynamics for the aqueous humor, helping to prevent high intraocular pressure.

One size fits all

Artiflex IOLs make your choices simpler. There is no need to make complicated decisions based on vaulting.
