E-Vision Developing Fully Tunable Electronic Contact Lens
Thursday, November 19 2015 | 00 h 00 min | Press Release
E-Vision Smart Optics, Inc., a Sarasota, Florida-based company specializing in electrically-modulated tunable lens technology, announced on November 12 that it is developing the first electronic contact lens (ECL) that will allow the wearer to continuously adjust far, near and middle-vision customized to the individual’s own needs.
This proprietary lens-based technology, already fabricated for electronic focusing eyeglasses, ophthalmic diagnostic equipment and in development with the U.S. military for augmented-reality head mounted displays, will now be integrated into standard contact lens designs.
Several important strategic efforts support e-Vision’s accelerated timeline to bring this fully tunable ECL to market. E-Vision recently closed a round of financing within its existing shareholder base to fund this development program. Additionally, the National Space Biomedical Research Institute (NSBRI), a science institute established by NASA, this week issued e-Vision a grant to develop the first fully tunable electronic eyeglasses to address the deterioration of vision that astronauts experience during space travel.
