Medicontur ELON extends Spectrum IOL portfolio

Medicontur ELON
Spectrum announces the arrival of Medicontur ELON Bi-Flex technology to its extensive premium IOL portfolio. With the UK’s widest selection of IOLs, the Extended Depth of Focus (EDoF) IOL addition guarantees a lens for every patient need via the provider.

The ELON lens with EDoF provides high-quality vision empowered by Wavefront Linking technology. EDoF IOLs represent the latest generation of presbyopia-correcting IOLs.

To create a true EDoF lens with minimal visual disturbances, Medicontur developed non-diffractive Wavefront Linking technology. This innovation is a series of central concentric refractive zones, varying in curvature, linked by specially designed linking zones.

The new hydrophobic acrylic ELON IOL model utilises the singular elongated focus created by Wavefront Linking. This creates real EDoF performance, providing functional vision from far to intermediate distances.

Made of the unique hydrophobic SEMTE material, designed by Medicontur, the ELON lens provides outstanding visual quality. The lens is marketed preloaded, in the POB-MA injector system, for easy and controllable implantation.

David Killengray, Managing Director at Spectrum said, “We’re excited to add the Medicontur ELON Bi-Flex EDoF IOL to our comprehensive range of lenses. With the widest range of IOLs in the UK, this addition enables us to offer surgeons a complete portfolio of premium IOLs.

“Our mission of bringing greater vision to everyone is realised by having a lens for every patient need.”

During the ESCRS congress in September 2022, several leading cataract surgeons shared their initial clinical experience.

Their results confirm the successful translation of the optical principles to the actual visual performance of their patients implanted. Each highlighted that the ELON IOL provides outstanding unaided distance and intermediate vision, both monocularly and binocularly.

The majority of patients do not require additional vision correction for performing their daily activities; with spectacles required occasionally for near tasks.
