The purpose of this project is development and organization of production sapphire crystals with UV- +blue filter for intraocular lens' manufacturing.

More than 400 000 surgical operations of intraocular lens' implantation are performed in Russia every year. Expensive foreign IOL or reasonably priced domestic IOL without blue filter are used for implantation. Also breakdown of PMMA optic material takes place.

The material developed during this project will lead to develop new model of sapphire IOL with UV + blue filter simulated natural eye optical characteristics and non-subjected to time degradation.
