Akreos AO Intraocular Lens

An aberration free, aspheric vision that more patients can appreciate.

Key Features & Benefits

  • Akreos AO (Advanced Optics) is designed to be free of spherical aberration

  • Enhanced contrast sensitivity and better vision quality are delivered by Bausch + Lomb aspheric, aberration-free designed Advanced Optics1

  • Designed to reduce PCO due to 360° barrier edge2,3

Bausch + Lomb's Akreos AO lens is the first aspheric acrylic IOL with aberration neutrality, because the aberrations present in the eye differ from person to person. It does not add further aberrations to the patient's eye but leaves the slight, naturally occurring positive aberration from the cornea, providing better depth of field.

Better Vision for More People

  • The Akreos AO is designed to be free of spherical aberration.
  • Optical performance is unaffected by optical or anatomical decentration or by pupil size due to uniform centre-to-edge power.1
  • More predictable and repeatable refractive outcomes can be expected with a broader patient population.

Aberration-Free Design Helps to Enhance Depth of Field

  • The Akreos AO maintains the natural positive spherical aberrations compared to aspheric aberrated IOLs.
  • With its aberration-free design, Akreos AO helps to improve depth of field in comparison to an aspheric aberrated IOL1.

Optimised Effectiveness Against PCO

The Akreos AO Lens benefits from the square-edge technology and a 360° posterior barrier, both features minimising cell migration that can cause Posterior Capsular Opacification (PCO) following implantation.

Single Use Injection System

The Akreos AO can be injected through the single use injector system, enabling in-the-bag implantation of the lens through a 2.8mm phaco incision.
