We are a group of scientists and engineers with expertise in materials science, physics, IP management, finance, and manufacturing; supported by clinical and surgical ophthalmologists. We are developing a novel implant using proprietary technology to radically improve the visual outcomes of cataract surgery.
Cataract is the age related opacification of the natural lens of the eye. During cataract surgery, a patient's cloudy natural lens is removed and replaced with a synthetic lens to restore the lens's transparency
In 2010, 20 million cataract surgeries were performed globally including 6.5 million in India. By the year 2020 the number of cataract surgeries is expected to go upto 32 million and 8 million respectively.
We leverage the advances made during the last decade in material sciences, electronic instrumentation and manufacturing methods to develop better and affordable medical device to radically improve the visual outcomes of cataract surgery.
