Exceptional Vision Quality

  • The Akreos Lens delivers exceptional vision quality and contrast sensitivity with an aberration-free design

Building On A Proven Track Record

  • The Akreos Lens has been successfully implanted in millions of patients around the globe

A Path To The Future

  • Consisting of a unique acrylic material that folds and compresses easily, the Akreos AO Lens is the next step on the path to sub-2 mm microincision cataract surgery

Key Features & Benefits

  • The Akreos AO’s exceptional four-haptic design helps maximize stability and centration in the capsular bag
  • Aberration-free aspheric lens provides superior contrast sensitivity
  • Because the diameter of the capsular bag generally increases with the axial length of the eye, the Akreos AO Lens is available in three overall lengths, for optimal fit and stability in hyperopic, emmetropic and myopic eyes*
  • Precision lathe-cut optic eliminates the shrinkage and deformation that can be found in cast-molded acrylic lenses, resulting in less dysphotopsia and fewer higher-order aberrations

Four-Point Design For Exceptional Centration And Stability

The Akreos AO’s innovative design provides enduring lens centration after capsular bag contraction. A study has shown minimal decentration with this haptic design up to one year following implantation.3

Square-Edge Design With 360° Continuous Posterior Barrier Edge Minimizes PCO

Designed to minimize PCO, the Akreos AO Lens maintains direct contact with the posterior capsule, forming a mechanical barrier against lens epithelial cell (LEC) migration. The optics and haptics of the lens have square edges and a 360° continuous posterior barrier edge, further inhibiting LEC migration.
