PowerVision Appoints Ophthalmology Thought Leader Douglas D. Koch, M.D. to its Scientific Advisory Board
Date:7/21/2014

BELMONT, Calif., July 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- PowerVision, Inc., a medical device company developing the world's first fluid-based accommodating intraocular lens, today announced that Douglas D. Koch, M.D., the Allen, Mosbacher, and Law Chair of Ophthalmology, and Professor of Ophthalmology, at Baylor College of Medicine has joined the company's Scientific Advisory Board.

As a recipient of several prestigious honors, including the American Academy of Ophthalmology Lifetime Achievement award, Koch will join the distinguished group who will guide PowerVision's team in the development of the FluidVision™ lens, the first fluid based accommodating intraocular lens designed to permanently restore clear vision at all distances for patients with cataracts and presbyopia, as the company works to secure its European approval, launch its pivotal study in the U.S. and prepare for a U.S. launch. The panel provides guidance on all aspects of product development, including surgical technique, design of the delivery system, clinical trial design and market positioning.

"I believe the FluidVision lens's distinctive shape-shifting and accommodative capabilities could be life-changing," said Koch.  "Many people still carry reading glasses post-surgery, since current procedures have yet to provide adequate visual clarity at all distances. The FluidVision lens addresses the other half of vision impairment problems, and will alleviate a source of frustration for my future patients. I'm excited and extremely happy to play a role in the development of a truly groundbreaking technology that can revolutionize the capabilities of intraocular lenses."

In addition to Prof. Koch, PowerVision's Scientific Advisory Board currently includes:

  • David Chang, M.D., an internationally acclaimed cataract surgeon with a private
