Small Aperture Lens

What is a Small Aperture Lens?

The IC-8 Apthera IOL is the first small aperture presbyopia correcting lens available to cataract patients. It is a form of an Extended Depth of Focus Lens that bends light rays to allow them to focus on the back surface of the eye.

How does the technology of the lens work?

The IC-8 Apthera IOL is embedded with a FilterRingTM that filters out peripheral, distorted, and aberrated low optical-quality light and delivers high optical-quality light to the retina. It removes low-quality light to provide a clear, extended range of vision at a distance and near.

Who is a good candidate?

If you are motivated to reduce your reliance on glasses and/or contacts after cataract surgery, the Extended Depth of Focus lens is a good option for you.

While the Apthera IC-8 lens offers a great range of vision, we still recommend the use of glasses for prolonged activities in the near range such as sustained work with fine print and reading a book.
