New Contact Lenses Being Developed

“Phase Focus Ltd. reports on how the Brien Holden Vision Institute is applying the Phasefocus high-precision lens profiler to assist in the development of new contact lenses. The Brien Holden Vision Institute is located at the University of New South Wales in Sydney, Australia,” writes Novus Light. “The core business of the Brien Holden Vision Institute is to create new ways to improve vision outcomes for people whose sight is affected by refractive error. Collectively, the conditions of myopia, presbyopia, hyperopia and astigmatism (all regarded as ‘refractive errors’) impair the vision of billions of people worldwide. An area of particular interest for the Brien Holden Vision Institute is the use of novel optics with the potential to provide advanced modes of vision correction using contact lenses. The Phasefocus Lens Profiler is capable of accurately measuring power profiles of soft contact lenses. Those measurements are helping scientists to understand and improve the distribution of optical power over the lens surface.” Read more.
