OCULUS have announced that it has received FDA clearance for the Myopia Master. According to Oculus, “The quick, contactless measurement method for axial length is not influenced by the accommodation status of the eye and delivers reproducible results.”
VOPTICA - Leading Visual Adaptive Optics plans to announce the first and only inverted meniscus intraocular lens (ArtIOLs) to improve peripheral vision. It improves peripheral vision by mimicking the optics of the natural crystalline lens providing optimised field curvature and peripheral astigmatism.
“Current intraocular lenses are designed to optimise image quality at the eye’s central retina, with not much attention to their off-axis performance,” Pablo Artal, CEO of Voptica. More than 1000 ArtIOLs have already been implanted with excellent results for the patients. Currently, this lens is available on the European market.
