With our patented digital iris technology, color and structure of the patient’s iris components (limbus, inner/outer stroma, collarette, and dilating pupil) may be adjusted with each custom iris rendition. This method is a huge leap forward in ocular prosthetics as it allows iris structures and color variation to be finely adjusted, providing a much higher level of accuracy and may be consistently replicated unlike traditional hand painted ocular prosthetic irises.
Replicating a human iris by painting is a very time consuming task if a high level of detail is desired. To save time, some competitors ocular prosthetics are made with crude structure where brush strokes are visible at a considerable distance. Our patented digital iris technology gives us the ability to produce an iris with high precision details, including whisps, crypts, and striations. By mathematically adjusting the color of each part of the iris, we may provide a level of precision that is unparalleled in comparison to a hand painted iris. The benefits of digital irises aren’t just limited to color and structure replication. Once a digital iris is made, starting a new ocular prosthetic is desired to make subtle improvements to shape, color, or any other artistic detail, and the process is reproducible and efficient. Due to our technology, we are able to make subtle refinements more efficiently than any other ocular prosthetic practice.
