PowerVision has developed “the first true shape-changing, fluid driven intraocular lens (IOL),” CEO Barry Cheskin said. The FluidVision IOL creates a “continuously variable monofocal” where no light is split as is currently the case with multifocal lenses. The lens mimics the eye’s natural accommodative power to transport fluids inside it, which creates the shape change. To date, the lens has been through several multicenter studies, first as a 4-mm system, then as 3.5 mm. The company completed its targeted enrollment for a multicenter study with the 3.5 mm system.
