A Smart Contact Lens with a built-in visual display is designed to magnify images for people with low vision. The patented lens, designed by a company called Mojo Vision, can project content from a smartphone.
What can Smart Lenses do?
Most advanced Smart Lens systems can automatically provide information about target insights such as a product in hands, information about scenery, and even facial recognition of a person coming towards you. The user can communicate with the system, for instance, with voice, signs, or finger sweeps.
To Whom The Smart Lens is Applied?
Smart Lens, which is used in cataract operations, can be applied to many cataract patients if there is no specific reason. Smart Lens (GIM) can also be applied to people who do not have cataracts at a young age, but have advanced hyperopia or cannot have laser operation because of high myopia, and want to get rid of their glasses at an early age.
A Smart Lens may be preferred if people who have undergone eye laser operation have decreased vision due to deformation in the intraocular lenses and cannot see near or far.
Professional status, age, social activity, reading habits, and intellectual level of patients with cataracts are also important in patient selection.
Proper patient selection, appropriate technique, the experience of the institution and the physician performing the surgery, and of course, the right lens selection will provide high success in these surgeries.
How T-to Apply a Smart Lens?
In Smart Lens surgery, the same procedures are applied as standard cataract surgery.
In cataract surgery, the natural lens in the eye is replaced with a lens that is suitable for the internal structure of the eye to improve the vision of the patient. However, in contrast to cataract surgery, instead of placing a standard lens (only pointing far, requiring glasses for near), a Smart Lens (pointing near and far) is inserted into the eye.
What Are The Advantages of Smart Lens?
Smart Lenses can focus close, far, and medium-distance depending on their multi-focus design. This lens, which is placed during cataract surgery, remains in the eye for life.
Meticulously applied Smart Lens placement has an average time of 10 minutes without making sutures. It is the simplest solution to distant and near vision problems which improves the patients' visual capability.
The eye number will not progress again with the Smart Lens. Cataract surgery is performed once, and no more cataracts occur in the eye.
