Ophtec, the inventor

Artilenses were invented by the Dutch professor Dr. Jan Worst. In 1977, he got the idea to fix lenses to the iris (the coloured part of your eye) when he was helping cataract patients in Pakistan. Using this simple and effective technique, he made poor people with cataracts see again. Later, he used the same method to fix lenses intended to replace glasses to the iris. Inspired by this idea, his wife founded the company Ophtec. Ophtec develops and produces ArtiLens and is the world’s leading company in the field of implant lenses intended to replace glasses.
