FR Recognition Number 10-116
ANSI  Z80.35-2018
American National Standard for Ophthalmics - Extended Depth of Focus Intraocular Lenses
This standard applies to intraocular lenses (IOLs) whose function is the correction of aphakia, with extended range of focus above a defined functional visual acuity threshold to provide useful distance and intermediate vision with monotonically decreasing visual acuity from the best distance focal point.

This standard addresses specific requirements for Extended Depth of Focus Intraocular Lenses (EDF IOLs) that are not addressed in the normative references, and include vocabulary, optical properties and test methods, mechanical properties and test methods, labeling, biocompatibility, sterility, shelf-life and transport stability, and clinical investigations necessary for this type of device. As with any standard, alternative validated test methods may be used.
Extent of Recognition
Partial recognition. The following part(s) of the standard is (are) not recognized:
Clause 8.2. Requirements [for sterility/package integrity].
Rationale for Recognition
This standard is relevant to medical devices and is recognized on its scientific and technical merit and/or because it supports existing regulatory policies.

This standard is recognized in part because:

Clause 8.2 is in conflict with an existing published final guidance. See Recommendation #1 under Section V. B. Anterior Segment Solid Devices of the guidance document cited below.
