Brand nameAJL PRO+
DefinitionAsymmetric intracorneal ring segment (Asymmetric ICRS)
Arc160° and 210°
ThicknessProgressive variable thickness from 0.15 to 0.25 mm and 0.15 to 0.30 mm
IndicationsThe correct indication for AJL pro + requires a thorough study of the optical aberrations and an assessment of the topographical and pachymetric parameters of the cornea, in addition to a comprehensive visual examination. In general, AJL pro + implantation may be considered in cases of reduced visual acuity due to:
- Keratoconus
- Post-LASIK corneal ectasia
In particular, AJL pro + is indicated for patients with asymmetric corneal ectasia where the flat meridian of the corneal keratometry and the vector sum of coma aberration (horizontal and vertical) are not coincident.
Product descriptionAJL pro + has an asymmetric design: it has a progressive width and thickness for a better adaptation to the corneal surface with the aim of achieving better results in patients with asymmetric corneal ectasia. AJL pro + consists of a fixed triangular cross-section, progressive base width from 0.60 to 0.80 mm, and progressive thickness, from 0.15 to 0.25 mm and from 0.15 to 0.30 mm, with both clockwise and counter clockwise designs available. Each AJL pro + has a 0.20 mm diameter hole in each apex of the segment to facilitate handling during surgery. Specifically designed to treat duck and snowman patterns.
MaterialPolymethyl Methacrylate (PMMA) Yellow (UV filter and blue light filter).
Sterilization methodEthylene Oxide (ETO).
SupplySingle-use individual sterile segment
Shelf-life4.5 years.
