AcrySof® Foldable Lens

Alcon Acrysof® Foldable Lens

The only effective treatment for cataracts is surgery. While the word surgery can frighten some people, modern medical technology allows your cataract to be treated safely with a microsurgical technique that takes less than 20 minutes to perform. Each year, about 2,000,000 people have their cataracts removed and an artificial lens put in its place.

AcrySof® Foldable LensOnce the cataract is removed, a permanent, artificial lens, called an intraocular lens or IOL is implanted. There are two types of IOLs available; non-foldable and foldable. Non-foldable IOLs are made of a hard plastic material. Alcon Acrysof is a foldable lens made of a soft acrylic material. A dedicated research and development team took 10 years to develop, test and bring this product to market.

Why we offer our patients the Alcon Acrysof® Foldable Lenses:

  • Since 1995, over 3.5 million AcrySof lenses have been implanted worldwide.
  • AcrySof was developed to work with a small incision, promoting faster healing.
