Corneal Inlays

Problem

It is estimated that while almost 25% from presbyopia, almost 45% of the world’s population have some degree of refractive error which includes near/far sightedness (myopia/hyperopia) ,  astigmatism and keratoconus.Current treatments for these centers around contact lenses (soft, gas permeable, and hybrids) and various surgical options. 

However, until recently there were few surgical options available for the 40+ patient which allowed them a spectacle-free or contact lens free lifestyle.

Corneal inlays are one new surgical option in for presbyopic correction.  They are implanted into the corneal layer and provide a solution.  However, with most, patient selection is critical and a consultation with your ophthalmologist will help determine which solution is best for you.  The procedure is reversible and typically takes less than 15 minutes.  There are advantages and disadvantages to various technologies and while we now have technology for presbyopic patients – we still have an unmet need for the largest segment of presbyopic patients – those with presbyopia and another refractive condition like astigmatism.

Technology

MAG’s patent pending, corneal inlays are the next generation technology addressing not only presbyopia but multiple refractive errors.  We have created a patient-centric customizable, platform device which can address a multitude of refractive errors as well as combination of errors.  We have used sophisticated finite element analysis modeling to optimize the design and placement. 

Its ability to reshape the cornea to its ideal shape is a quantum leap in disruptive thinking.  Quite frankly, no other corneal inlay has the breadth and scope of MAG’s corneal inlays.  It’s the first corneal inlay that changes the shape of the cornea that addresses the patients with multiple refractive errors, including astigmatism and keratoconus.

Our proprietary technology is unique because of:

 

• Placement: Spares the central optical zone

• Predictive model: Proprietary model allows for precise placement.

• Patient- Specific: Customized placement of device allows to manipulate for desired corneal structure.
