The platform is a configuration to enable developers to place augmented vision display chip applications into any soft hydrogel contact lenses that millions of people wear daily. The company, which holds several US Patents for smart contact lens technologies, says it is the only company to publicly display the capability to integrate display circuitry into modern, soft contact lens materials.
To date, says the company, other companies are attempting to achieve this in harder and less comfortable “scleral lenses.” The latest announcement follows the company’s 2020 milestone display of stretchable electronic circuitry in name brand Bausch & Lomb contact lenses.
The company has pioneered the techniques of integration of solid components and circuits into hydrogel materials by allowing the materials to expand and contract in the normal manufacturing process. The “smart biology” technology enables multiple developers to create displays and ophthalmic improvement applications for contact lenses and intraocular lenses already used by millions of people daily.
From the latest AR/XR visual applications to giving better sight to people who suffer from myopia or presbyopia, the technology, says the company, enables an electronic revolution for the future of eyesight and ophthalmic capabilities, into future, connected and tunable with mobile devices. While several leading companies are seeking to develop augmented reality glasses and goggles, the soft contact lens, says the company, remains the ultimate medium for discreet augmented reality, comfortable and aesthetically pleasing.
