What about the Verisyse?
The ARTISAN® Myopia lens and the Verisyse lens are the same device manufactured by OPHTEC in Groningen, the Netherlands.
As the subsidiary for the original manufacturer of the device, we have been receiving an increase in inquiries about the availability of the Verisyse lens, sold by AMO, now Johnson & Johnson. The Verisyse is the trade name used by AMO for the distribution of the ARTISAN® Myopia.
OPHTECs ARTISAN® Myopia Phakic Intraocular Lenses (IOLs) are single-piece iris fixated IOLs made from ultraviolet light absorbing PMMA and designed for the correction of myopia.
Designed and developed by Prof. Jan Worst and first implanted in a patient in Germany in 1986, it is the first intraocular lens of its kind to be used in the phakic eye. FDA approved in 2006, the ARTISAN® Myopia Phakic IOL was picked up for distribution by AMO under the trade name of the Verisyse. With a long history of safe usage, the lens continues to be approved for use in the US.
Features and Benefits:
• Stable iris fixation with unique enclavation technique
• Reversible treatment
• Optimal clearance from vital tissues of the anterior chamber
• Predictable, reliable, versatile
• Long term safety
