I am not aware of any problems going through airport scanners with any intraocular lens implant.  This would be a major problem considering the number of people traveling having had cataract removal and intraocular implants, thus if this were true, it would be a poor business decision to make them as such.  However, if it is listed specifically on their company website or there is anything in writing, I would be happy to know of this issue.
