Artisan®/Artiflex® Lenses

The Artisan/Artiflex lens is a lens that is permanently placed in the eye to replace spectacles. It is not a contact lens and cannot be removed as with contact lenses.

The Artisan/Artiflex lens is smaller than a contact lens and once it is placed in the eye it is nearly invisible. During the operation that is carried out in theatre and takes about 25 minutes, the Artisan/Artiflex lens is placed in front of the iris (colour of the eye). The lens is attached to the iris of the eye and will stay in position.
