Purpose: To compare the biomechanical and optical properties of 2 new hydrophobic platforms and a series of commercially available foldable intraocular lenses (IOLs). Results: With 1 exception, IOLs equilibrated in aqueous medium had a lower glass-transition temperature, higher deformability, lower injection forces, and complete recovery of their initial optical properties after injection. Typical hydrophobic acrylic dry-packaged IOLs required higher injection forces with high residual deformation and lost part of their initial optical quality after injection. Hydrophobic acrylic C-loop, double C-loop, and closed quadripod haptics applied optimum compression forces to the capsular bag with negligible optic axial displacement and tilt compared with plate haptics and poly(methyl methacrylate) haptics. Conclusions: The combination of the C-loop haptic and the bioadhesive glistening-free material, which absorbs a predetermined amount of water, allowed for a biomechanically stable IOL. The same material used in association with a double C-loop haptic design facilitated the perioperative manipulation and placement of the IOL in a smaller capsular bag without impairing the other biomechanical properties of a single C-loop design.
