ChromaGen Launches Second Generation Colored Filters
Top Line: ChromaGen Vision is launching the second generation of its proprietary system of colored filters which can be prescribed as an aid for people with reading disabilities and colorblindness.
Close Up: The fitting of the haploscopic filters helps re-synchronize and selectively changes the wavelength of light going into both eyes in a dynamically balanced format. The use of different filters effectively changes the speed of the information in the brain’s neurological pathways allowing synchronization to take place.
Vital Stats: ChromaGen filters can either be embodied in a contact lens or worn as eyeglasses and can easily be incorporated into any existing prescription. The system has been expanded from eight to 16 different filters. The filters appear neutral gray when worn. The ChromaGen System has received a 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market its products. ChromGen Vision LLC has recently been granted a U.S. patent on the second generation of the ChromaGen technology. The company has entered into a partnership with Pech Optical, which will manufacture and distribute ChromaGen spectacle lenses.
