GOOD DESIGN 400px.jpg

BILLERICA MA, December 17, 2018 – For the modern cataract and refractive surgery, every intraocular lens (IOL) needs to be delivered into the patient’s eye safely and precisely. The Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design recognizes AST Products’ pioli™ IOL Delivery System as such a solution, naming it a GOOD DESIGN® Award winner for 2018 in the medical category. And this also marks the 1st IOL delivery system to receive such a prestigious award.

The pioli™ IOL Delivery System is a CE-marked and US FDA 510(k) cleared single-use, sterile device intended to insert a one-piece foldable intraocular lens (IOL) into the human eye through a surgical procedure. It is a truly easy-to-use and unique IOL delivery system that utilizes a patent-pending consistent IOL-folding technology. The set consists of a single-use, sterile syringe injector with a silicone tip and a single-use, sterile LubriMATRIX™-treated cartridge. The tip of the plunger, housed in the injector, is covered by a silicone cushion that provides a good contact to the lens to ensure a smooth delivery.

“As surgeons’ demands evolve, so do the expectations for the IOL delivery system,” said Carl Cummings, President of AST Products. “Our continuous and intense focus on the industrial needs and the challenges of our customers resulted in designing this unique IOL delivery system capable of ensuring a safe, simple and effective lens delivery.
