OverviewSuggest Edit

AcuFocus Inc. is a privately held ophthalmic medical device company that develops and markets breakthrough technologies for the improvement of near vision. The Company's proven, proprietary technology platform uses a small aperture - or pinhole - effect to allow focused light rays to reach the retina and bring objects into focus. The result is unique, reliable and long-term. Using this small aperture concept, two products have been developed: the Company's flagship product, the KAMRA™ corneal inlay, and the innovative IC-8™ IOL. The KAMRA inlay helps presbyopic patients restore their near vision while maintaining their distance vision. The IC-8 IOL* provides a range of vision across various distances, from near to far, and is specifically designed for patients with cataracts. In addition to these products, AcuFocus also distributes the AcuTarget HD™ diagnostic and surgical planning instrument. This instrument is essential for the optimal treatment and technology selection for a broad range of patients, including LASIK, cataract, dry eye and presbyopes.
