Next-generation refractive surgery
Clerio is developing a noninvasive LIRIC technology. Instead of changing the shape of the cornea using cutting or ablation, LIRIC alters the cornea’s refractive index using a femtosecond laser. The procedure can be used for custom corrections such as hyperopia, presbyopia and higher-order aberrations, offering superior optical quality and visual acuity.
A safer, better option
The dryness and discomfort sometimes associated with refractive surgery is due to the severing of the corneal nerves. Clerio’s LIRIC technology is tissue-sparing, which does not require cutting a flap or through corneal nerves.
