When we reach an age of 40 we begin to lose the ability to focus at near objects. The medical term for this condition is called presbyopia. Presbyopia is the loss of accommodation that occurs when the eye’s natural lens becomes less elastic due to aging.
Human accommodation works similar to the autofocus feature on a camera except human eyes adjust to distance and near objects through tiny muscle contractions within the eye that either thin or thicken the shape of the natural human lens. The LensGen™ AIOL is designed to fit inside the same location as the natural human lens and harness the tiny muscle contractions that occurs during natural accommodation in order to change the shape of the lens implant and restore youthful vision, thus eliminating the need for reading glasses at any age.
The LensGen™ AIOL is unique because it mimics the natural human lens and is designed to use the eye’s natural accommodation forces inside the eye to change shape and restore youthful vision to see clearly from distance to near and everything in between.
