Providing a Patient-Friendly Intraocular Lens (IOL)

In Japan, about 1 million patients undergo cataract surgery each year. A cataract is a clouding of the crystalline lens in the eye. In order to replace the crystalline lens, an incision must be made within an extremely small diameter. NIDEK develops and delivers and surgical equipment, IOL’s, and surgical tools that can perform such a task. We devise the optimum IOL shape and material to reduce postoperative complications and to shorten surgery

Supporting Early Detection of Various Diseases in Medical Practice

The fundus of the eye is the only part of the human body where the blood vessels can be observed directly. NIDEK’s fundus cameras, non-contact tonometers, auto ref/keratometers, and similar products are widely used in general health examinations to detect eye diseases including diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma, and the signs of visceral diseases as well.
