Oculentis presented its multifocal toric intraocular lens, the LENTIS Mplustoric at ESCRS in Paris. The new IOL offers Oculentis's award winning presbyopia correction combined with the astigmatism correction from LENTIS Tplus technology.

Patrick Reinhold, product manager, said that the company offers: "Big innovation in multifocal IOLs with the LENTIS Mplustoric as it features a segment at the bottom of the lens that reduces halos and glare." This sector-shaped near vision segment is reported to also offer advantages to the patient in reflections, image jumps and loss of contrast sensitivity, currently occurring with available 'ring' systems, as well as the inhibition of ghost images and/or double vision.

The toric MIOL is made from HydroSmart acrylic materials and allows pupil independence, aberration neutrality and the addition of 3.0 and 1.5 dioptres. It can also be tailor-made to benefit patients suffering from both presbyopia and corneal astigmatism. The predefined inferior placement of the near vision segment and the customized torus simplify the orientation and implantation procedure of the toric MIOL.
