The LensGen™ technology is unique because it mimics the natural human lens and uses the eye’s natural accommodation forces inside the eye to change the shape of the lens implant and restore youthful accommodation. Following natures template the engineers at LensGen™ have developed a biomimetic device with the inherent ability to change shape like the natural human lens. In doing so the team at LensGen™ has taken the next forward in developing a superior and breakthrough technology in the surgical treatment of presbyopia and cataracts.
The surgical procedure for LensGen™ AIOL is the same as conventional cataract surgery which is performed in over 24 million cases annually around the world. The LensGen™ technology has undergone an extensive computer modeling study with a leading professor and expert in computer modeling. Advanced engineering and analysis tools were used to design and fabricate the lens: Optical Ray Tracing, Finite Element Analysis and State-of-the-Art Reaction Cast Molding. Prototypes have been successfully fabricated and an accommodation simulator was developed to measure accommodation and optical performance.
