Consistent visual outcomes1

The sophisticated and patented ZEISS Optic (ZO) Asphericity Concept of the ZEISS CT LUCIA 621P/PY is designed to compensate for a wide range of aberrations due to different corneal shapes and lens positions. With its uniquely forgiving design it delivers excellent visual outcomes for a broad range of patients and surgical situations.

Does decentration matter?

Yes! Decentrations of varying magnitude are not uncommon. Besides the asymmetry of the eye, decentration of IOLs can occur due to poor capsular or zonular support, decentered capsulorhexis, asymmetric shrinkage of the capsular bag, misplacement of the haptics for IOL luxation in eyes with pseudoexfoliation. ZEISS CT LUCIA 621P/PY IOLs, with ZEISS optic features, are designed to compensate for potential decentration and lens misalignments. Reducing the risk of decentration allows you more time to focus on your patients and their needs.

The LUCIA lens has some special features […] you have the ZO Optic [ZO: ZEISS Optic], which compared to other aspheric lenses makes the lens more forgiving or less sensitive when it comes to decentration […] And therefore, we use this lens a lot, not only in challenging cases, when you expect, for example, phimosis or capsular shrinkage like pseudoexfoliation syndrome or after uveitis or traumatic cases, but also in standard cases.

Whether the simulated impressions correspond to the actual visual impressions must be clarified in future invasive studies.
