The article offers information on a multicenter study being conducted at five centers in France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Sweden which demonstrates that Akreos MI60, a hydrophilic acrylic intraocular lens (IOL) inserted through a 1.8 millimeter (mm) cataract incision, showed good visual function. Professor Thomas Kohnen said that the Akreos MI60 IOL also showed excellent centration and a low degree of optic tilt. The study involves patients who underwent cataract extraction with implantation of the MI60 IOL between August 2006 and October 2007.
