Executive Summary

Visiogen Inc.'s Synchrony accommodating intraocular lens has dual optics, meaning that the ciliary muscles don't have to move it as much as other IOLs. The result, the company claims, is more accommodative power that translates into better vision at all distances. Like all IOL makers, Visiogen's point-of-entry will be cataract surgery, but it is eyeing the large presbyopia market.

WaveTec Prepares for a New Wave in Refractive Surgery

Refractive lens exchange is a mega opportunity in ophthalmology with the potential to serve the large patient populations with presbyopia and astigmatism. The category has been slow to take off, however, because current technology doesn't allow clinicians to meet, consistently and with confidence, the high expectations of new refractive surgery customers who are paying out of pocket for the benefit of great vision, at all distances. WaveTec has an enabling technology for a wide range of refractive surgeries to help clinicians and the many manufacturers of implantable intraocular lenses deliver on the promise of better vision.

NuLens Ltd.

Today, most of the accommodating and multifocal IOLs that address presbyopia share one thing in common: they are placed, as are the standard lenses used in routine cataract procedures, inside the capsular bag, a thin membrane surrounding the eye's natural lens. It's becoming increasingly apparent that over time, the capsular bag undergoes changes that compromise visual results. NuLens came up with the idea of not using the capsular bag as the housing for the accommodating lens.
