PowerVision

Developing an innovative, accomodating intraocular lens for presbyopia

PowerVision is an ophthalmology-focused medical device company developing a novel accommodating intraocular lens (IOL) technology. The company's lead product is the FluidVision IOL, which utilizes natural accomodating forces within the eye to displace fluid and change the shape of the lens. PowerVision is advancing this technology for patients with presbyopia and/or cataracts, to create an accomodative range equivalent to the vision of a 35 year old.
