CATANIA, Italy, Sept. 15, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SIFI, a leading international ophthalmic company, announces 3 scientific presentations on its latest innovations during the upcoming Congress of The European Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgeons (ESCRS) which will take place from 16th to 20th September in Milan (Italy). These presentations will feature the results of studies evaluating SIFI’s advanced solutions for cataract refractive surgery.
SIFI also announces the launch of Evolux, a novel extended monofocal intraocular lens (IOL), based on a hydrophobic material and a non-diffractive profile, designed to provide better intermediate vision and equivalent distance vision when compared to a standard monofocal IOL. Evolux® was developed on a patented technology platform, pioneering the extension of the depth of focus through wavefront engineering.
On Monday 19th September, the Free Paper “Visual Performance Of The Extended Depth Of Focus (Edof) Well Fusion® Optical System: Mini Well® On The Dominant Eye And Mini Well Proxa® On The Non-Dominant Eye After Cataract Surgery” (presenter: Dr. Victor Caparas) will showcase clinical results of SIFI’s first-in-kind unique solution to treat presbyopia.
The E-poster “Evolux, The New Standard Of Care With Extended Depth Of Focus In Monofocal Intraocular Lenses”. (E-poster number: PO192) will feature preclinical results evaluating the optical performance of SIFI’s new IOL Evolux.
On Monday 19th September, the Satellite Symposium “Advanced solutions for targeting quantitative and qualitative outcomes in cataract refractive surgery: more possibilities for more patients” (presenters: Prof. Gerd U. Auffarth, Prof. Béatrice Cochener, Prof. Rita Mencucci, Prof. Emilio Pedrotti, Dr. Victor Caparas, Dr. Dorin Nicula), will feature six presentations addressing the role of quantity and quality of vision in cataract refractive surgery, the clinical results of trials on the Well Fusion® optical system, the new extended monofocal IOL Evolux and the management of postoperative treatment after cataract surgery with Netildex® gel, a twice-a-day, preservative-free fixed combination of dexamethasone 0.1% and netilmicin 0.3%.
SIFI’s team looks forward to welcoming ophthalmologists at Booth B28 to discuss benefits and characteristics of the above products, as well as of Ecbirio and Amiriox, two glaucoma drugs recently launched in selected European markets.
ABOUT WELL FUSION®
The WELL FUSION® system, through the combination of the Mini Well® and the Mini WELL PROXA® intraocular lenses, offer a novel solution that provides cataract patients the option to treat presbyopia with spectacle-free uninterrupted high-quality vision at all distances and in all lighting conditions.
Evolux is an extended monofocal IOL, based on a hydrophobic material and a non-diffractive profile designed to provide better intermediate vision and equivalent distance vision when compared to a standard monofocal IOL.
