Projecting UV Into The Eye To Help The Blind See

Source: Zygo Corporation

When an ophthalmologist removes the natural lens in a human eye that’s affected by a cataract, an artificial intraocular lens (IOL) is put in its place. Recently, a medical device startup manufacturer developed a new type of IOL that allows surgeons to adjust for errors in preoperative measurements and variations in vision as the eye heals. It can also be adjusted in focus and power non-invasively, post-implantation.
