The prosthesis has three main areas, each with a specific function:
• Optic Zone: Creating a clean optical surface of the cornea
• Transitional Zone: Creating the proper curvature of the cornea
• Haptic Zone: enhancing corneal surface performance by paralleling the form of haptic bearing with the exact form of the patient's eye.
