1287: 3-piece IOL butterfly cartridge

This video shows how to load a three-piece IOL in the butterfly style cartridges. This is the recommended device for insertion of the Johnson & Johnson 3-piece IOLs such as the AR40 line and the ZA 9003 Tecnis IOLs. The AR40 line is very useful since has an extended range (AR40E) down to +1 diopters and even has a myopic range down to -10 diopters (AR40M) for the extreme myopia patients.

A misloaded IOL can pose many issues as shown in this previous video. And we must also remember that these low power IOLs can have meniscus designs which make them thicker in the periphery.
