Wavefront Linking Technology
Medicontur Bi-Flex ELON
To create minimal optical disturbances, Medicontur invented Wavefront Linking, a non-diffractive technology for a wide range of vision. This proprietary technology is based on a series of central concentric refractive zones varying in curvature and linked by specially designed linking zones.
Wavefront Linking enables light energy to be distributed continuously along the optical axis. Connected focal points result in a singular ELONgated focus, useful across the entire range of vision. With no diffractive rings, Wavefront Linking technology lowers the risk of visual disturbances compared to diffractive EDoF solutions on the market.
Central concentric refractive zones varying in curvature linked by specially designed linking zones. Continuous light energy is distributed along the optical axis with connected focal points, delivering singular elongated focus across the entire range of vision.
The ELON lens is equipped with the proprietary Bi-Flex design for long-term stability and centration. The large contact angle between the lens haptics and the capsular bag wall ensures long-term stability and visual comfort.
SEMTE hydrophobic copolymer material, ensuring high uveal biocompatibility and low levels of glistening.
The Medicontur Bi-Flex ELON lens provides excellent contrast sensitivity along the whole defocus range.
Patients can lead an active lifestyle independent of spectacles. ELON delivers high-quality vision for far and intermediate distances. Glasses may be required for near vision.
Preliminary clinical experience suggests that Medicontur Bi-Flex ELON can be used in presbyopia correction in patients with mild ocular pathologies or previous ocular surgeries.
Non-diffractive Extended Depth of Focus (EDoF) IOLs. The latest generation of presbyopia-correcting IOLs.
Using several physical or optical principles, ELON IOL aims to satisfy the visual needs of patients who lead an active lifestyle, while minimising the risk of dysphotopsia compared to diffractive technologies.
