Concept of the Lumina –
shifting optics

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

Restores vision and accomodation

The natural muscle of the eye adjusts your focus

The Lumina:

– 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

Behind the iris and in front of the capsular bag

  • The Lumina is fitted in the ciliary mass of the eye, behind the iris and safely in front of the capsular bag.
  • The ciliary muscle is in contact with the Lumina and drives the lens smoothly, accurately and directly.
  • The Lumina is independent of the capsular bag. Deterioration of the capsular bag (posterior capsular opacification or PCO) can be treated by standard YAG laser to restore sharp vision and full accommodation.
  • Before surgery, the refractive power of the eye is measured to determine the refractive power of the lens. The Lumina can be manufactured in a range of 8-30 D fixed refractive optical power, in steps of 0.01D, with a continuous gradation in size, in steps of 0.01mm. So, the
    Lumina is customized accurately for each of your eyes.
  • The Lumina is injected via a standard injector during suture-free surgery through a 2.2-2.6 mm incision.
