Yesterdays standards for visual outcomes are no longer considered adequate for the active life-styles of today. Imperial Medical Technologies, for more than 10 years has been quietly and confidently working on new optical systems that we believe will set the standards for others to follow.
Now, after the 2010 introduction of PRESBIOPTICx™ the World’s first Progressive Multifocal IOL using “refractive” optics, IMT is once again leading the way with DIFFRACx Micro™ the World’s first Progressive Multifocal IOL using “defractive” optics and Imperial’ss newest product release into the world of Advanced Optical systems.
DIFFRACx™ uses the brains superior awareness to detail to its advantage. The theory behind the normal diffractive optical system is to supply sharp, crisp images for the brain to sort, thus allowing for good distant vision, good mid-range vision and good close vision. Unfortunately, other IOL manufacturer’s multifocal lenses have concentric circles or lines that dilute the image and blur the crispness of the image.
Imperial Medical invented the progressive IOL and those images can now be viewed without loss of light and without the image being blurred by concentric lines separating the dioptric zones. This is done through 22 zones allowing for distance, mid vision and near vision no matter what the pupil size.
Unlike its competition, IMT has modified the DIFFRACx Micro™ to include its technology from its “ASPHERICx™” IOL line and its progressive multifocal PRESBIOPTICx™ intraocular lens line. Because of that, DIFFRACx Micro™ lenses are also progressive, aspheric and aberration controlled meaning that there are fewer focal zones and NO LINES to eat up valuable light needed at twilight or dusk.
Dr. Gianluca Rubiolini reported in a formal presentation at the ASCRS that for the first time, he was able to perform Diabetic Retinopothy surgery without shadows on the retina and without fear of the laser bean hitting the rings of the lens because with a progressive multifocal THERE ARE NO RINGS.
Imperial Medical’s quality process, combined with superior plastics, have proven to provide superior visual acuity and unquestionable safety. The Company has nearly 1.5 million implants with NO complications and no adverse reactions.
A perfect track record!
