In some procedures, but not all, an intraocular lens is delivered into a native capsule after the native lens has been removed. The physician then delivers the intraocular lens out of the delivery device, through the opening, and into the target location within the eye.In some embodiments the plug element is everted at a distal end. Only a distal portion of the plug element can be adapted to be reconfigured.

21, 2012, the disclosure of which is incorporated by reference herein. In some embodiments at least partially plugging a gap allow for an increase in fluid pressure in the delivery device proximal to an optic portion of the intraocular lens.

In some embodiments at least partially plugging a gap reduces the amount of fluid that flows past the intraocular lens in the delivery device.

In some embodiments the plug element is open at a distal end after deployment.

In some embodiments the plug element has a fluid flow restriction proximal to a distal end of the plug element. In some embodiments the plug element is adapted to be reconfigured in response to fluid flow through the lumen.

In some embodiments the plug element is an e PTEF tube.

In some embodiments a distal portion of the support element is oriented towards an inner wall of the delivery device.

All publications and patent applications mentioned in this specification are herein incorporated by reference to the same extent as if each individual publication or patent application was specifically and individually indicated to be incorporated by reference.

In some embodiments the plug element is a tubular element.

One aspect of the disclosure is an apparatus for deploying an intraocular lens into an eye, comprising: an intraocular lens delivery device and an intraocular lens disposed therein; an support device adapted to be disposed within the delivery device, the support device having a lumen therein adapted to allow to fluid to flow therethrough; and a flexible plug element secured to the support device, the plug element adapted to at least partially plug a gap between an intraocular lens positioned in the delivery device and an inner surface of the delivery device when fluid is flowed into the lumen.
