Medical meets eye Laser Welding

A client came to Carrs while trying to combat a medical condition called ‘Persistent Nystagmus’, an abnormal rhythmic oscillation of the eyes that is estimated to occur in 0.24% of the population. This effects a person’s ability to control eye movements, having a substantial impact on quality of life.01252018 feature eye stroke wp

CWT were able to  successfully weld a titanium case, encapsulating a magnet in a biologically safe casing. This success led to implant into the eye meeting the required standard to be able to be tested in the patient.

The patient reported that the oscillopsia (where objects in someone’s visual field appear to oscillate) had improved, especially on the downgaze. His visual acuity scores also improved, the parameters of which have remained stable over 4 years of follow-up checks.

These improvements in vision were paralleled by real life impact: the patient was able to return to part-time work, and daily functions such as reading and watching television improved substantially as well as no discernible impact on shirts of gaze or on functional range of eye movement over 4 years.

Working with the medical industry is very important to Carrs. Successfully meeting the client’s requirements allows for a significant improvement in the patient’s quality of life. Knowing that we helped contribute to this makes us eager to work with companies in the medical field to help contribute to future patient’s quality of life.
