STAAR Surgical Forms Team of Leading Ophthalmic Surgeons to Study the Use of Collamer(R) Material for Accommodating Intraocular Lenses
Date:11/20/2008

poly-HEMA based copolymer, a small amount of collagen and a UV-absorbing chromophore (light absorbing chemical). When fully hydrated, the Collamer lens material possesses a high water content concentrated at the surface of the lens. The distribution of the water content (the bulk at the lens's surface) creates an anti-reflective interface in Collamer lenses. Other characteristics of the Collamer lens are its low levels of aberrations, biocompatibility and bio-adhesive properties. These unique features make Collamer an ideal optic material and highly suitable for an accommodative lens. STAAR's formula and processes for making Collamer are protected by patents. Lenses made of Collamer have been approved by the FDA for implantation since 2000.
