EPGL's technologies revolve around the manufacturing and the integration of electronics into modern Silicone Hydrogel lenses. Several of the patents have potential to become industry standard if adopted. "Our methods allow integration of flexible electronics into the contact lens during the manufacturing process without major changes to the current process. We also have solutions in the areas of autofocus and optics for augmented reality contact lenses," said David Markus, PhD. He added, "We intend this recently allowed patent to be the first of many coming in the future."
EPGL will host "Smart Vision Conference 2016" in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday September 23, 2016. The conference, already at RSVP capacity, will be a gathering of people interested in EPGL technologies and the new field of augmented reality (AR), which is estimated by experts to be a $150 billion industry in the making.
