Hydrophilic HEMA-MMA (HydroxyEthylMethAcrylate-MethylMethAcrylate) is the material we use in the Occuphil brand intraocular lenses (IOLs). In terms of value for money, hydrophilic IOLs are the best option. Patients seeking affordable cataract surgery can find foldable hydrophilic IOLs at private practices.
PHACO emulsification surgeons prefer folding hydrophilic IOLs for cataract surgery. The foldable nature of these lenses allows them to be implanted through a smaller incision (using an injector cartridge system), which means less postoperative trauma for patients and better surgical results.
Occuphil IOLs are designed to be single-piece and to have aspheric biconvex optics. With an aspheric negative optic, Occuphil IOLs are suitable for most of the global population. The anterior surface of the optic is spherical while the posterior surface of the optic is aspheric negative. Occuphil IOLs come in a double haptic design which offers better stability and centration in the eye. Occuphil IOLs are manufactured using high quality imported UV blocking HEMA-MMA raw material. They are only available in the posterior chamber variant.
Our Occuphil double haptic IOLs are available in the below variants:
The above variants are available in the optic diameter of 6.0 millimeters and an overall diameter of 12.50 millimeters. The 360-degree square edge reduces the chances of Posterior Capsule Opacification (PCO).
Our Occuphil IOLs have a refractive index of 1.46 when hydrated at 20 degrees Celsius and 1.45 when hydrated at 35 degrees Celsius. Their “A-Contstant” value is 118.0. They require an incision size of 2.40 millimeters to 2.80 millimeters. They have a water content of 26%.
The yellow variant offers better contrast sensitivity.
Diopter range for our Occuphil IOLs:
Occuphil IOLs are packed in an aluminum lid blister containing purified type 1 water. The blister is further sealed in a medical-grade pouch to facilitate sterilization. These IOLs should be implanted using our injector cartridge system that is supplied along with the IOL in the box.
Our Occuphil IOLs are sterilized using the Steam sterilization process.
Occuphil IOL Market: We cater to the Indian domestic market and also export our hydrophilic IOLs to other countries.
