[0008] In some embodiments the haptic is secured to the optic at a location that extends less than 180 degrees around the periphery of the optic.

The haptic can be secured to the optic at a location that extends less than 90 degrees around the periphery of the optic.

The lens capsule is a smooth, transparent membrane that completely surrounds the lens.

The lens capsule is elastic and is composed of collagen.

[00018] In some embodiments, in the first cross section, the peripheral portion has a radially inner body portion with a thickness greater than a thickness of a radially outer portion.

In the first cross section the peripheral portion can have a radially inner body portion that is at least twice as thick as the radially outer portion.

The haptic can be secured to the optic at a location that extends about 45 degrees or less around the periphery of the optic.

[0009] In some embodiments the optic portion comprises a buttress portion in which the plurality of channels are formed.

The lens is flexible and its curvature is controlled by ciliary muscles through the zonules, which connect the ciliary muscles and the equatorial region of the capsule.

At short focal distance the ciliary muscle contracts, the zonules loosen, and the lens thickens, resulting in a rounder shape and thus high refractive power.

The first fluid chamber configuration and the second fluid chamber configuration can have a radially inner surface that is more linear than a radially outer surface.
