GlobalNewswire | OVITZ Gives Optometrists A Look into their Future with a New Level of Vision Improvement
ROCHESTER, N.Y., May 14, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OVITZ, a company that develops innovative vision-enhancing technologies for contact lenses, announced today that its xwave system is now in beta use with 15 U.S. based optometrists. The wavefront-guided lens solution is designed to significantly improve vision performance for patients with diseased corneas and reduce their need for eye surgery in many cases. With its ability to create personalized contact lenses, it also has the potential to dramatically change the contact lens industry.
Optometrists have been talking about the benefits of wavefront-guided contact lenses for more than a decade; however, the technology has yet to be commercialized. According to Robert Ryan, OD, FAAO, Associate Professor of Ophthalmology, Flaum Eye Institute, “The xwave solution can bring revolutionary change to the industry and allow us to take patients who have been limited and compromised to a new level of vision improvement.”
