AcrySof® Cachet® Phakic Lens—Engineered for Excellence™

The Future of Phakic Lenses Starts Now

Beyond anything else, a phakic lens must be safe and efficacious. For the past several years, Alcon has been gathering data for our AcrySof® Cachet® Phakic Lens on both fronts. The support for our story is strong and enduring:

  • Proven safety
  • Unique lens design
  • Excellent visual outcomes
  • Trusted heritage

The time has come for you to consider a new phakic lens—the only one that is designed to last.

A lens that maintains endothelial cell density (ECD)

  • Mean annualized percent central ECD loss of 0.41% for the postoperative period, 6 months to 3 years (n=101)
  • Mean annualized percent peripheral ECD loss of 1.11% for the same time period (n=95)
  • Normal endothelial cell loss is 0.6% ± 0.5% per year1

Refractive IOLs

  • Data shown is mean change with lower 90% confidence interval
  • Year 1 and year 2 show gains in ECD
  • Baseline = 6 months post-op

Maintaining healthy ECD levels is one major measure of confidence.

Stable Cell Morphology Further Illustrates the Preservation of Healthy ECD Levels

  • Central and peripheral endothelial cellular shape (mean % hexagonality) was unchanged at all post-op visits through 3 years
  • The cell size distributions (mean coefficient of variation) remained constant during all post-op visits through 3 years

Minimal ECD changes + stable cell morphology = preservation of corneal health

Refractive IOLs

With a Heritage Like No Other

An innovative, angle-supported design. A time-tested lens material. Crafted together, they provide a proven clinical solution for the challenges of maintaining endothelial cell density and avoiding pupil ovalization. The AcrySof® Cachet® Phakic Lens is an outstanding opportunity for your patients with moderate to high myopia to improve their vision.

  • Trusted AcrySof® lens material is designed specially for the eye
  • Over 40 million AcrySof® lenses have been implanted to date
  • From Alcon, the world leader in intraocular lenses
