Research, Clinical Trials and a Commitment to Innovation

With research grant funding exceeding $1.5 million from the National Eye Institute (NIH) and the Ontario Ministry of Health (Canada), Ocutech’s bioptic systems have been designed and studied, preferred 3 to 1 in independent clinical trials. In 1996, Ocutech gained international acclaim for developing the world’s first autofocusing bioptic telescope for the visually impaired. Now, the latest version of the Falcon Autofocus Bioptic, the only self-focusing bioptic globally, delivers the most natural magnified vision experience imaginable.

Ocutech received international attention when it developed the first-ever autofocusing bioptic telescope for the visually impaired.
