Delivering post cataract surgery true accommodating vision continues to be the ultimate optical peak, which will enable patients to see up close, far away and everything in between without glasses.

Vision is a prominent sense that has a significant impact on every aspect of human life. Eye disease and refractive defects such as cataract and presbyopia (which are unavoidable) are highly correlated to advanced age. Although the vast majority of age-related vision impairment can be treated through current technological advancements, no true accommodative IOL exists in the market.

The company is developing a breakthrough approach for Next generation Accommodative Intra-ocular lens (IOL) utilizing visual enhancement systems that exploits the eye’s natural accommodation mechanism.

The innovative true Accommodative IOL will enable patients to change their vision focus to near, intermediate and distance vision, the same way as younger people do, all that without the need for glasses.

The novel Presbyopic (Accommodative) IOL is based on a unique design that can be implanted during and after Cataract surgery or Refractive Lens Exchange (RLE).
