The study revealed, “patients who received the Fluid Vision lens in one eye during cataract surgery [who] had impressive results of 20/33, 20/25 and 20/20 respectively for near, intermediate, and distance vision.” The two main optical challenges that Fluid Vision will address are presbyopia and cataracts.Presbyopia is the slow degeneration of the eye’s crystalline lens.
I’m excited and extremely happy to play a role in the development of a truly groundbreaking technology that can revolutionize the capabilities of intraocular lenses.” Traditional intraocular lens implants are the current procedure to assist cataract sufferers in seeing long distances however corrective lenses are often needed.
Koch onto Power Vision’s Scientific Advisory Board continues to maintain high standards for Power Visions mission statement, “…to provide a family of fluid-based lens implants that meet the clinical and lifestyle needs caused by these conditions, and develop the most significant innovation in vision correction surgery since the introduction of the intraocular lens.” Fluid Vison is designed to “permanently restore clear vision at all distances for patients with cataracts and presbyopia.” Dr.
Koch explains, “Many people still carry reading glasses post-surgery, since current procedures have yet to provide adequate visual clarity at all distances.
The developer of the first Fluid Based Accommodating Intraocular Lens called Fluid Vison has taken on a maverick of ophthalmology. With three million people suffering from cataracts each year, one of several conditions Fluid Vision addresses, bringing Dr.
