MINI WELL READY, an innovative lens for the surgical correction of presbyopia has been registered and approved by the South Korean Ministry of Food & Drug Safety.
SIFI, Italian leader in the development of therapeutic solutions for eye illnesses, is pleased to announce the registration and approval of MINI WELL READY intraocular lens in the Korean territory. MINI WELL READY is an innovative, spherical, focal, progressive IOL (intraocular lens) designed for the surgical correction of presbyopia.
Uncorrected presbyopia is one of the most important causes of visual impairment worldwide due to the progressive aging of the population. It is an interference in vision due to a gradual loss of the ability to focus on images closely. It is a natural and physiological phenomenon that affects all human beings after age 45. Main causes of presbyopia include progressive decrease in crystalline plasticity and reduced functional capacity in the ciliary muscle.
Improvements brought on by MINI WELL READY intraocular lens are closely linked to the novel optical design that assures a continuum of focus between far vision and near vision, therefore positively affecting visual performances.
"Thanks to the introduction of progressive lenses with extended depth of focus, the concept of vision quality has changed promoting an improvement of sight at all distances, from afar, intermediate to nearby." commented Fabrizio Chines, SIFI Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. "SIFI is proud to be the promoter of such an innovation into the Asia Pacific Markets"
SIFI looks forward to working with its distribution partners in South Korea and the entire Asia Pacific region and enabling surgeons to offer this advanced technology to their patients as SIFI strives to bring innovation and excellent patient care to presbyopia patients around the world. In the coming months, IOL Mini WELL READY may be implanted in clinics and hospitals in Korea that will include it in their services, offering patients a technologically advanced presbyopia solution in conjunction with cataract surgery.
