– A study evaluated the efficacy of a novel laser-eyewear technology to enhance the vision of individuals with corneal diseases.
– The technology bypasses the anterior segment of the eye and directly projects images onto the retina using a low-energy-class-I-RGB-laser.
– The study included 21 subjects with visual impairment due to corneal diseases.
– Measurements of visual acuity for near and distance vision were conducted with and without the laser eyewear.
– The results showed that the laser eyewear improved visual acuity in subjects with visual impairment.
– The 2x magnification mode of the laser eyewear resulted in the greatest improvement in visual acuity.
– Reading speed, quality of life, and usability in daily activities also improved with the use of the laser eyewear.
– The study demonstrated that the laser eyewear could be a new option for low vision aids for patients with corneal diseases.
– Further research is needed to explore the potential of the laser eyewear in visual rehabilitation for these patients.
