Using refraction, a lens is a transmissive optical device that concentrates or disperses a light beam. A compound lens is made up of numerous simple lenses (elements), typically organized along a common axis, whereas a simple lens is made up of a single transparent piece of material.
Lenses are created by grinding and polishing or molding materials like glass or plastic into the correct form. A prism only refracts light without concentrating, whereas a lens can concentrate light to create a picture. The term “lens” also refers to devices that focus or disperse waves and radiation other than visible light, such as explosive, microwave, and electron lenses.
A cataract is a gradual opacification or clouding of the eye’s lens that occurs as people age. When a cataract impairs vision to the degree where it interferes with daily activities, surgery is frequently undertaken. Cataracts are a prominent cause of vision loss in older persons.
The majority of the time, cataract surgery is completed without incident. A cataract surgeon may be able to safely remove cataract fragments that have fallen into the back of the eye, but in some cases, the cataract cannot be entirely removed.
Even the most experienced cataract surgeons occasionally experience this, particularly when the cataract is very solid or if trauma (injury) or other issues have harmed the lens’s attachment to the eye’s inner wall.
After surgery, if cataract bits (or lens fragments) are still present in the eye, a severe inflammatory reaction may develop. This reaction may result in high eye pressure, central retinal and corneal edema, and even perhaps irreversible vision loss.
Lens fragmentation device makes it easy for the surgeon to operate. A vitreoretinal surgeon who can safely remove the cataract pieces from the back of the eye performs further surgery in these circumstances.
The Global Lens fragmentation device market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
A revolutionary microinterventional lens fragmentation tool from ZEISS called the miLOOP® is intended to solve the problems associated with hard cataracts.
The ZEISS miLOOP enables cataract surgeons to accomplish zero-energy lens fragmentation for any grade of cataract by utilising micro-thin, super-elastic, self-expanding nitinol filament technology.
