Bausch & Lomb launches IOL (intraocular lens) insertion system:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Bausch & Lomb is to launch in May 2003 an intraocular lens (IOL) insertion system designed to allow cataract surgeons to perform less invasive surgery and, thus, speed up patient recovery. The SofPort system, which the company claims is the only integrated, single-use, single-handed planar delivery IOL insertion device, allows an IOL to be introduced through a sub-3.0mm incision. The proprietary planar delivery method minimises the amount of lens unfolding typically encountered with traditional delivery systems, says the firm, which plans to launch the product in the US first, followed by selected world markets.
