Abstract (en)

[origin: FR2766699A1] The invention concerns a single-piece intraocular implant made in flexible material comprising a substantially circular optical part (10) and a haptic part consisting of two haptic assemblies (12, 14) arranged symmetrically relative to a first diameter (XX') of the optical part. The implant is characterised in that each haptic assembly comprises two haptic members mutually symmetrical relative to a second diameter (YY') of the optical part orthogonal to the first diameter (XX'), each haptic member (16, 18) being arranged in the optical part plane and comprising two arms (20, 22), each arm having a first end (20a, 22a) connected to the optical part periphery and a second end (20b, 22b), and a substantially rectilinear contact portion (24) whereof the ends (24a, 24b) are connected to the second ends of said arms, the arms of the haptic members not being arranged along the optical part radii, the four contact portions (24) being substantially tangent to a common circle of diameter D1 and concentric to the optical part.
