“These remarkable results are the culmination of more than 15 years of research by our founder and Chief Scientific Officer, Dr. Garth Webb,” said Dr.
“The lens was designed to produce 12 diopters of accommodation, and it’s gratifying to see the prototypes deliver these results in bench testing,” said Dr.
“If Ocumetics’ lens technologies can only achieve half the bench test accommodation amplitude in human trials, we will be able to offer older adults the opportunity to have near vision as they had when they were teenagers.“, said Dr.
Preclinical studies for Ocumetics’ accommodating lens technology are expected to be completed in Q3 2022. First-in-human proof-of-concept studies are expected to begin shortly thereafter, in Q4 2022. Full clinical trials are expected to begin in 2023.
