Surgeons experienced with the Staar (STAA: Monrovia, CA) Collamer Intraocular Lens recognize nanoFLEX is not a standard implant. Patients choosing nanoFLEX Plus enjoy enhanced spectacle-free distance and intermediate visual function without glare and haloes. This has been confirmed by the multi-centered Collamer Accommodating Study Team (CAST: Results on file).
Whether it is the material, the optics, or the architecture of the implant, Staar’s nanoFLEX intraocular lens provides functional accommodation not found in its monofocal competition.
With the guidance of Alan Reider, ESQ, nanoFLEX Plus was defined as a premium cataract surgical option. Patients can expect an enhanced refractive result employing Staar’s nanoFLEX intraocular lens and, when appropriate, no-cost excimer laser topography-guided corneal reshaping. The nanoFLEX Plus preoperative services often include topography, tomography, wavefront assessment, determination of corneal power (including RGP lens over-refraction, and the use of both anterior and posterior corneal power data), binocular visual function assessment, endothelial cell count, global pachymetry mapping, pre-treatment of dry eye, refractive expectation counseling, macular and optic nerve assessment by OCT and visual fields.
I have successfully used the nanoFLEX in dozens of patients with retained retinal silicone oil. I have used nanoFLEX in DSEK, lax zonules with endocapsular rings, and in cataract surgery combined with glaucoma filters, stents, and tubes. Its superior biocompatibility, superior mean transfer function (MTF), and overall resiliency make nanoFLEX my preferred implant for all cataract surgery cases.
Staar’s incredible success with the phakic Visian lens is in no small part due to the excellence of the collamer material. Its outstanding design, optics, and biocompatibility has made the ICL an international favorite.
The Premium Experience
nanoFLEX Plus employs a superior clinically-validated accommodating implant and, when necessary, postoperative refinement of the refractive endpoint to achieve an optimized functional visual result. Patients enjoy spectacle independence for many tasks without glare, haloes, or starbursts.
