Unlike most other IOLs, the AO IOL optic has hinges connecting it to the haptic; please see adverse events section below for more information.
Do not resterilize this intraocular lens by any method.

The incidence of adverse events experienced during the clinical trial was comparable to or lower than the incidence reported in the historic control (“FDA grid”) population. Vaulting is a post-operative adverse event where the AO IOL optic hinges move into and remain in a displaced configuration.
If vaulting occurs, please see Directions for Use for a detailed listing of symptoms, information regarding diagnosis, potential causes, and sequelae.
provides approximately one diopter of monocular accommodation which allows for near, intermediate, and distance vision without spectacles.
Careful preoperative evaluation and sound clinical judgement should be used by the surgeon to decide the risk / benefit ratio before implanting a lens in a patient.

There was an excellent agreement between simulations and measurements (1% for the focal length and 11.4% for geometrical parameters, on average) for radial load up to 0.6 N.
