Abbott Medical Optics (AMO) has announced the launch and CE Mark of approval for both the Tecnis multifocal toric IOL and iTec preloaded delivery system at the ESCRS in Milan this year.

The IOL is a premium lens solution for astigmatic cataract patients and provides spectacle-independence for the patient. It can also correct presbyopia and corneal astigmatism.

AMO also introduced the iTec preloaded delivery system, which allows the safe implantation of the IOL without having to manually load the lens. The delivery system is a highly-controlled, screw-style device providing reliability and efficiency for the surgeon.

Jim Mazzo, senior vice president of AMO, stated, "Cataract surgeons in Europe now have two new products available to address the unique lifestyle needs of their patients, By receiving CE Mark for the TECNIS Multifocal Toric IOL and the TECNIS iTec Preloaded Delivery System, Abbott continues to demonstrate its commitment to advancing cataract vision care innovation and providing high quality patient outcomes."
