Introducing this intra-ocular lens is performed under topical anaesthesia with a 3 mm incision. Fixation is on the iris.
Its advantage introduces the incision size to 3 mm instead of 3 mm and reduces post-operative astigmatism.
Its disadvantage is the material (silicone) inducing pigments adherence needing topical service for some weeks.
