CEO Özge Altunbaş Göktekin of VSY Biotechnology, a significant global company in the field of ophthalmology, gave us valuable information on cataract disease and solutions provided by the company’s new trifocal intraocular lenses. Altunbaş said: “With the help of the trifocal intraocular lenses we developed, we can offer a solution for both cataracts and eye defects. Eyesight is enhanced through technological developments.”
Özge Altunbaş Göktekin, the CEO of VSY Biotechnology, explained to us how totally new technological trifocal intraocular lenses were developed through accelerated Research & Development and Production Development activities, resulting in a solution not only for cataracts but also for eye defects. Göktekin commented that through increased social awareness of these new solutions, cataracts will be treated and the need for eyeglasses will be eliminated. She also added the following statement to her words about cataract disease and treatment methods:
“Cataracts are characterized by a loss of vision after the natural crystalline lens behind the pupil loses its transparency and becomes opaque. This is described as ‘cloudy vision’ in colloquial language. The prevailing reason for cataracts is old age. However, certain conditions such as eye trauma, diabetes, high eye pressure, and uveitis may also cause cataracts. The solution for cataracts is to remove the natural lens by operative methods and replace it with an intraocular lens that is produced in harmony with the body. Now, trifocal intraocular lenses can enable patients to see at all distances and can also treat astigmatism. In this way, by providing spectacle-independence, a contribution to the economy will also be possible.”
TRIFOCAL INTRAOCULAR LENSES ALSO FIX THE EYE DEFECTS IN PATIENTS WITHOUT CATARACTS
Özge Altunbaş Göktekin, the CEO of VSY Biotechnology, told us that intraocular lenses can fix eye defects in short-sighted and long-sighted people as well as those suffering from presbyopia or astigmatism. The use of intraocular lenses eliminates the need to use glasses or contact lenses among people without cataracts. Therefore, they enjoy a more comfortable life.
