  • Patent number: 5843187
    Abstract: An intraocular lens, capable of being manipulated by a pulling tool through an limbal incision in the eye, which utilizes a optical portion. The optical portion takes the form of a flexible transparent body. A fixation element is also employed in the present invention for positioning the lens in a interior segment of the eye. The fixation means may consist of at least one appendage which is connected to the optical portion. The optical portion further possesses an engagement zone for permitting the exertion of a force adjacent the optical portion by a pulling tool. The integrity of the optical portion and/or the fixation element is maintained by reinforcement or strengthening of the same against forces exerted by the pulling tool.
