Insertion Technique for Akreos IOLs

  Channels: Cataract Surgery, Refractive | Posted 8/11/2009

As an alternative to standard IOL insertion techniques which may cause the Akreos IOL to vault forward into the anterior chamber, Dr. Gary Hirshfield recommends loading the Akreos lens into the cartridge upside down. The injector is inserted into the eye bevel down and rotated 180 degrees. This orientation causes the lens to vault posteriorly, facilitating implantation into the capsular bag.
