PreciSight®, a game changing device PreciSight®, an intraocular medical device, consists of two optics located in the capsular bag: a permanent base lens used as a docking station and an exchangeable front lens. The latter is inserted on the base lens and can be replaced at any time, if the patient cannot support it or feels that his vision is not optimal (halos or glare preventing in particular driving at night), which happens randomly in some patients. The replacement of the front lens is done safely, a few months or years after the first operation, during a minimally invasive surgical operation.
About InfiniteVision Optics : Founded in 2010 and based in Strasbourg (France), InfiniteVision Optics is a Medtech company specializing in the development of innovative intraocular lenses for cataract treatment. Its flagship product, PreciSight®, allows the front intraocular lens to be changed throughout the patient's life. Thanks to a minimally invasive secondary procedure, the risks to the patient are considerably reduced (compared to those associated with full explantation). This unique exchange system offers surgeons a solution to obtain the best possible vision for the patient, even in cases of refractive surprises. The PreciSight® intraocular lens system received CE marking in 2017 and is marketed in Europe.
