Kubota Vision, the American subsidiary of the Japanese firm Kubota Pharmaceutical Holdings, announced that it just completed the first prototype of smart glasses equipped with its technology. Kubota’s technology consists in the projection by micro-LEDS of myopically-defocused virtual images on the retina, in order to reduce the increase in axial length of the eye associated with myopia. Last August, a clinical study in New York had validated the integration of this technology on a portable device, which led to this first glasses-like prototype. The group said that it will now work on improving the prototype’s design, relatively bulky at this stage, and launch additional clinical studies in order to receive regulatory approvals. Eventually, Kubota, plans to integrate its technology in smart glasses and contact lenses, as well as AR and VR devices.
