Developers and First Users of Technology

In some cases, not only is CODET one of the first users of the technology worldwide or in Mexico, but also CODET was instrumental in the development of the technology. Through its clinical research department, CODET often times works with the ophthalmic industry to develop new technology and get it approved by the FDA and Cofepris through clinical trials. This allows CODET to consistently be the earliest adopter of new innovations for ophthalmic surgery.

Benefits and highlights:
  • The surgeon can customize the lens power by directing a low intensity beam of UV light onto the lens from outside the eye.
  • The light is delivered in an office-based setting after surgery
  • The special photosensitive material of the lens reacts to the UV light and changes shape of the lens to match the prescription the patient selected during their eye exam.
  • Multiple adjustments can be made to ensure the best result prior to making the changes permanent.
  • Between 2 and 4 total light treatments per eye.
  • Each lasting approximately 90 seconds and separated by approximately 3 days, are required.
  • For the first time ever, patients can have the confidence that their result will reflect how they want to see the world.
  • CODET was instrumental in the development of the LDD and LAL, working with RxSight in the development of this technology that uses Nobel Prize winning science.
