I recently attended several lectures in Fort Collins on the most up-and-coming technology in eyecare. I wanted to share with you one of the most fascinating things I learned about from these lectures: A brand new, recently-approved "CustomFlex" Artificial Iris! This technology would be of great benefit to someone missing an iris (or both) for various reasons. This could be life-changing to someone, for both comfort and cosmetic reasons. Various steps are taken to make the prosthetic iris look virtually identical to the person's other iris. They are handpainted in Germany, like a work of art. Pretty amazing how far medicine has come that this is even a possibility.
