Concept of the Lumina –
Unique approach to achieving high accommodative power – based on laterally shifting optics – driven by the ciliary muscle.
The variable lens provides the eye with continuous sharp vision from 25-40cm, normal reading distance, to far.
The Lumina lens has two integrated, connected, optical elements to adjust the sharpness of your vision.
One element has a lens to provide sharp vision at far and both elements have precisely designed surfaces to provide a variable lens for perfect intermediate and near vision.
As the muscle in the eye contracts and relaxes during the normal accommodating process, the elements shift to focus at your desired distance.
How the lens works
The natural muscle of the eye adjusts your focus
– is made from hydrophilic acrylate, the same material that is used in other lenses implanted for over 30 years in over 50 million eyes and
– is implanted in the eye by standard surgery
