Aliso Viejo, CA-eyeonics Inc. has launched its new crystalens Five-O, an IOL with an increased optic size and parallel plates.

Aliso Viejo, CA-eyeonics Inc. has launched its new crystalens Five-O, an IOL with an increased optic size and parallel plates.

The Five-O, introduced at the American Academy of Ophthalmology Annual Meeting in November, is designed to meet surgeons' requests for an IOL with a larger optic. In this version, the optic is increased from 4.5 to 5 mm.

The IOL's parallel pockets offer greater plate motion by creating a uniform-width pocket in the capsular bag, according to the company. In addition, the IOL offers 17% greater surface area for contact between the optic, plates, and capsular bag, and it features 90% more plate arc length than the previous design. These changes were made to enhance predictability and capsular bag support further.
