The diffractive-refractive optic design achieves excellent visual acuity under both photopic and mesopic lighting conditions. The light distribution of the IOL is optimally regulated through the interaction of the illumination intensity and the pupil. Under photopic lighting conditions the light is balanced between the near and far range; in low light, the emphasis is on safety and far vision is more dominant. With a product adapted to their everyday needs, patients benefit from the best possible imaging conditions.
This is achieved by focusing the diffractive element on the central zone of the optic: This reduces glare to a minimum. The refractive edge area generates excellent distance vision under mesopic conditions and with dilated pupils, comparable to monofocal IOLs. This offers decisive safety benefits for the patient especially in low-light conditions.
