Taipei, Sept 2, 2020 – It is estimated that at least 2.2 billion people have a vision impairment or blindness globally, some of those include, glaucoma, refractive error, cataract, and more, driving the global demand for ophthalmic medical materials.
With excellent medical research environment and medical device manufacturer, Taiwan has been recognized by many countries for its ophthalmic device innovation. Taiwan Excellence, representing the best of Taiwanese innovation, hosted an online product launch on 2nd Sept, Wednesday to showcase the latest Taiwanese ophthalmic medical technologies.
“Taiwan Model” is successfully fighting the current COVID-19 pandemic, however relatively few people know that the champion of its medical equipment industry is the contact lens which accounts for 75% of Taiwan’s ophthalmic medical equipment export value and 1.53% of global sales, said Mr. Walter Yeh, President & CEO of TAITRA at this online campaign.
BenQ Materials contact lens brand, Miacare, is one of the leading contact lenses brand names in Taiwan. Its world-leading EautraSil™ Hydrophilic Silicone Technology transforms the conventional silicone molecules into hydrophilic structures without using any solvent treatment to form a hydrophilic film. They are the first company to be able to do so! This allows for a higher oxygen transmissibility as more oxygen molecules penetrate the lens to reach the cornea – resulting in a healthier, safer and ultra-comfortable experience for your eyes.
Besides of contact lens brand, Taiwan’s finest ophthalmic medical equipment innovations were also exemplified by these companies:
- Crystalvue’s Non-Mydriatic Auto Fundus Camera, which utilizes automatic 3D tracking, reduces human diagnostic error and is sold to more than 40 countries around the world;
- Medimaging’s Horus Digital Portable Tonometer, which uses air-jet pressure detection to avoids contact with disease and infection;
- In-Trust’s Aurai Hot & Cool Eye Massager, which is the first in the world to use water circulation and water wave massage to reduce intraocular pressure without risk of harm.
The one-and-half-hour online product launch was part of a series of events held by TAITRA. According to TAITRA, more events focusing on medical products, including dentistry and assistance devices for the elderly, will be held in the coming weeks.
