What makes LicriEye unique

People aged 65 years have a fifty-fifty chance of being affected by a cataract – clouding of the natural eye lens. Vision can only be restored by cataract surgery where the clouded lens is removed and replaced by an artificial lens. However, currently available lenses often fail to provide accurate vision for the patient.

LicriEye has developed an artificial, re-adjustable lens which promises patients the restoration of 100 % of their vision and has the potential to improve millions of lives.

Conventional method:

Positioning an artificial lens is challenging. The lens will not deliver perfect vision if it is not perfectly positioned.
The patient therefore, may need glasses or to undergo further surgery.

LicriEye method:

With the use of a LicriEye lens, the ophthalmologist has a better chance of adjusting
the lens using a laser and restoring the patient’s proper eyesight.

LicriEye would enable ophthalmologists to change the focus of the artificial lens after cataract surgery non-invasively using a laser, thus correcting potentially poor vision. Our liquid crystals expertise plays a key role here.
