Japanese company launches “smart glasses”, promise every day of 1-hour testing can reduce access. This smart lens was developed by the Japanese company Kubota Pharmaceutical Holdings, effectively improving eyesight by eliminating the underlying cause of myopia.
Ryo Kubota, an expert and CEO of ophthalmology – who develops smart glasses, has been studying the treatment of myopia for a long time.
The product principle is a way of projecting an image from the lens of this part to the wearer’s retina to correct the refractive error causing myopia. According to the company, if you wear the device for 60 to 90 minutes a day, you will improve myopia.
Through further clinical trials, they are trying to determine how long the effects will last after wearing them and how many days users have to wear the device to be able to permanently eliminate nearsightedness.
The biggest advantage of smart glasses is that you can restore your vision spontaneously without surgery.
President Ryo Kubota said he plans to start selling in the Asian market in the second half of this year and affirms it will especially help Asians who are very susceptible to myopia.
The current price has not been determined exactly, but Ryo Kubota said the minimum price is 100,000 円 (about 955.70 USD).
On the other hand, Kubota Pharmaceutical Holdings is developing a contact lens-style myopia correction device with similar effect behind smart glasses.
Currently, the company is considering whether to make the product available through local and online resellers.
