Kowa Supplement A PERFECT PARTNERSHIP: THE AVANSEE PRELOADED IOL SYSTEM

A review of European data

Abstract

Cataract surgery has dramatically evolved over recent years due to the development of injectors that insert a folded intraocular lens (IOL) into the eye through a small incision. A number of IOLs and IOL injector systems are currently available, some of which are more reliable than others. This review compares the quality, reliability and ease-of-use of the more common IOLs/IOL injectors with the three-piece (3P) Avansee™ IOL/ Avansee™Preset injector (Kowa Co., Ltd., Japan) – one of the most commonly used injector systems in Japan and available for use in Europe since 2014.

Unlike some IOL injectors, the AvanseePreset lens and injector have been designed to perfectly partner
each other to provide an injector system that is quick, easy and reliable to use, with more controlled,
more stable IOL insertion than some other systems.

Compared to many other IOLs, the optical purity of the Avansee lens is unlikely to be compromised during
insertion and is also unlikely to deteriorate over time. This suggests that Avansee 3P insertion using the AvanseePreset injector system is a useful option for the treatment of aphakia during cataract surgery.
