New innovations and technology are constantly revolutionizing the world of eye care. From surgical procedures to eye exams, there always seems to be a new instrument or test to enhance a patient’s vision.
Initially developed by astrophysicists for telescopes, wavefront analysis now holds the promise of revolutionizing refractive surgery, with the idea of “super-vision” more attainable than ever. By taking a complete “fingerprint” of the eye, practitioners are now able to measure, and then correct higher-order aberrations that were previously undetectable.
With augmented reality for vision impaired, a new generation of eyewear has evolved that combines smart contact lenses and stylish, lightweight glasses. The system will be tailored to the needs of vision-impaired patients who will benefit from both lens-based vision correction and magnification and digital enhancement of the view of their surroundings. By capturing an image of the wearer’s surrounding, magnifying it significantly, then providing it as a panoramic near-eye display, this eyewear aims to improve the wearer’s sensory performance.
Many industry giants are working on incorporating robotics and microsurgery. Microsurgery requires a great deal of patience and a steady hand, something that robots can be pretty good at. By creating an innovative interface between the surgeon’s hands and a specially designed robot, this technology can eliminate hand tremor and provide unprecedented precision when operating using microscopes.
