First Preloaded Toric Available in U.S. and Monofocal Option Combine Consistent IOL Delivery with Outstanding Visual Outcomes of enVista®

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Oct. 27, 2020 – Bausch + Lomb, a leading global eye health company, today announced the introduction of the SimplifEYE intraocular lens (IOL) delivery system, which is available exclusively for the enVista® MX60PL and the enVista® toric MX60PT, the first preloaded toric IOL available in the United States.

“Surgeons recognize that using a preloaded IOL system can streamline the lens preparation process and help provide consistent IOL delivery,” said Chuck Hess, vice president and general manager, U.S. Surgical, Bausch + Lomb. “Now, for the first time, surgeons can offer their patients the excellent outcomes provided by the enVista glistening-free optic while helping to maintain the lens’ integrity and reduce the risks associated with handling.”

The SimplifEYE delivery system facilitates smooth and consistent implantation of enVista lenses into the capsular bag in just three steps through an incision as small as 2.2mm. The fully enclosed SnapSet™ cartridge houses an untouched IOL to help ensure proper positioning and reduce the risk of lens damage.

The beveled tip of the SimplifEYE system permits consistent lens folding to afford surgeons reproducible and reliable delivery of the enVista IOL into the capsular bag. Clear construction provides outstanding visualization of the IOL during implantation, and the proprietary coating technology of the inserter eliminates linear additive transfer deposits on the surface of the IOLs after implantation.1 Finally, a convenient viscoelastic port ensures proper IOL lubrication that allows for smooth passage of the IOL during delivery.

“In my experience, this new delivery system allows for streamlined IOL insertion, and the lens then unfolds quickly, both of which contribute substantially to enhancing efficiency in my OR,” said Dee Stephenson, M.D., from Stephenson Eye Associates in Venice, Florida and first surgeon to use the SimplifEYE system to implant an MX60PT. “I look forward to having continued access to these advantages while also offering patients the many benefits that the enVista platform offers.”

The enVista MX60PL offers the widest range of powers of any preloaded IOL (0-34D). The enVista toric (MX60PT) offers exceptional rotational stability as well as the lowest cylinder power of 1.25D, which allows surgeons to correct more of their astigmatic patients. Both preloaded lenses also offer the benefits of a zero spherical aberration (SA) optic with excellent focus tolerance and contrast sensitivity as well as StableFlex™ technology, which provides improved material properties to deliver more rapid unfolding and enhanced optic recovery following delivery. Because both lenses are uniform power center-to-edge, neither are affected by tilt and decentration.

About enVista® IOLs
The enVista® family of lenses, which include monofocal and toric IOLs, remain the only single-piece, hydrophobic acrylic lenses domestically available that have been proven to be glistening-free.2 They feature a unique set of attributes that help compensate for the eye’s natural imperfections. The Trusight aspheric optic provides the benefits of excellent image quality as well the potential for increased resistance to scratches and abrasions that may occur during loading and surgical manipulation. Step-vaulted AccuSet haptics allow for extensive interaction with the capsular bag to aid in securing the lens position. The SureEdge design features a continuous 360-degree square edge; similar square edge designs have been shown to have the potential to prevent posterior capsular opacification compared to round edge designs.3,4,5
