The HOYA iSert Aspheric Pre-loaded IOL system (Hoya Surgical Optics, Inc., Chino Hills, CA), streamlines cataract surgery from IOL preparation to insertion. The single-use iSert system is preloaded with either a UV-blocking or blue-blocking aspheric, glistening-free, hydrophobic acrylic IOL. The unique design of the system can be prepared in seconds and allows the IOL to be delivered through a 2.4mm incision. The single-use, disposable inserter is NTIOL approved and can be discarded after IOL’s implantation, eliminating the risk of cross-contamination and the need for postoperative sterilization associated with reusable systems.
