enVista hydrophobic acrylic IOL

enVista is a new Glistening-free, hydrophobic acrylic IOL from Bausch + Lomb.

The enVista hydrophobic acrylic IOL is the first and only FDA-approved enVista IOL in the U.S. with labeling that states: “No glistenings of any grade were reported for any subject at any visit in the clinical study”.1-2

Glistenings are fluid-filled microvacuoles that can form within an IOL, and are common in some hydrophobic acrylic IOLs. They cause a portion of the light coming into the eye to be scattered in all directions, and have been shown to have a negative impact on visual acuity.3 Additionally, the enVista lens is designed to minimize Posterior Capsular Opacification (PCO), a common post-surgical complication with IOLs that cause vision to become clouded post-surgery.

Introducing BLIS for use with enVista!

BLIS, complete with a reusable hand piece and single-use cartridge, allows surgeons secure, controlled delivery of the enVista IOL through unenlarged phaco incisions as small as 2.2 mm. 

Key Features & Benefits

Give your patients long-term clarity and quality of vision2-10
  • No glistenings were reported at any time in controlled clinical studies1,3,4
  • Aberration-free aspheric Advanced Optics8-10
  • Designed to minimize PCO11

Exceptional quality of vision

  • Glistenings are prevented and material stability enhanced by:
    • glisteningsHydrating the lens to equilibrium water content so that it will neither gain nor lose water
    • Packaging the lens in 0.9% saline solution to eliminate fluid exchange with the aqueous humor3,5-7
  • Abrasion resistance is increased due to improved surface durability7
  • Hydrophobic properties are maintained over time5
  • Enhanced contrast sensitivity; uniform power, center to edge; and better vision quality are delivered by Bausch + Lomb aspheric, aberration-free Advanced Optics8-10


Designed to minimize PCO

  • Step-vaulted haptics are designed to vault the optic posteriorly for direct contact with the capsular bag
  • LEC migration inhibited by 360° square barrier edge11 


Stability and advanced control

  • 100% of patients had ≤ 5° of IOL rotation between days 30 and 1801
  • Precise positioning in the capsular bag and removal of viscoelastic are facilitated by controlled unfolding
