Eyedeal Innovation Research Institute

We continue to explore the boundaries of science, develop innovative medical devices, and bring patients better vision.

The Eyedeal Innovation Research Institute is led by the Principal Investigator of the national key research and development program, Sanqin scholars and other well-known experts in the industry. The research institute helps cultivate talents and high-level scientific research teams in the fields of polymer, chemistry, optics, mechanical/biomedical engineering and clinical around the world; and is committed to innovative R&D and to expand Eyedeal’s product pipeline.

From R&D design, R&D product strategy formulation, to the whole life cycle and development and listing, the Eyedeal Innovation Research Institute covers a wide range of fields such as ophthalmology and clinical solutions.

China’s National Key R&D Program

The Ministry of Science and Technology issues national key R&D plans to address major scientific and technological issues concerning the national economy and people’s livelihood, the core competitiveness of industry, the innovation capability and national security.

Eyedeal is honored to undertake this glorious mission and is responsible for the national key R&D project of application of high-tech biomedical materials to develop a new generation of intraocular lens products.

Breaking through the technical bottleneck of national economic and social development, Eyedeal, with this mission in mind, strives to bring a new type of intraocular lens product made from cross-linked polyolefin material, to the market, ending the monopoly of foreign pharmaceutical giants in the high-end intraocular lens industry.

Academician expert workstation

In 2019, the Academician Expert Workstation of Xi’an Eyedeal Medical Technology Co., Ltd. led by Lin Pinchuk, a member of the American Academy of Engineering, was officially unveiled.

Eyedeal will give full play to the technical leading role of the academician and expert workstation, seize existing opportunities, continue to gather global talents, and continue to carry out high-level international scientific and technological cooperation.

The academician expert workstation will significantly drive Eyedeal, enhance the company’s technological innovation capabilities, cultivate a professional innovation team with international competitiveness, and accelerate the advent of a new generation of intraocular lenses and subsequent product pipelines around the world, and bring good news to the majority of patients.

Postdoctoral innovation base

In 2019, Eyedeal was approved to establish a post-doctoral innovation base in Shaanxi Province.

The post-doctoral research workstation is the link between enterprises and university research institutes to carry out industry-university-research cooperation. Eyedeal will gradually improve the high-level talent training system of school-enterprise cooperation and jointly explore the frontier of intelligent learning.

Eyedeal will continue to give full play to the advantages of this platform, further strengthen the introduction and training of high-end talents, increase the strength of independent innovation, and continuously improve the quality of scientific research. Closely combining scientific research with industrial needs, and supporting scientific researchers conducting extensive academic research, will truly realize the deep integration of production, education and research, and contribute to scientific and technological innovation, and economic and social development.

Material advantages – xPIB


Eyedeal 5th generation IOL is made of xPIB (crosslinked polyisobutylene), a polyolefin-based polymer.

xPIB is a safe biomaterial with excellent optical properties. We hold an exclusive global patent for the use of xPIB.

Clear, undistorted vision

Eyedeal xPIB has an uniform molecular structure with high modulus strain and ultimate tensile strength compared with other IOL materials.

xPIB achieves high refractive index (>1.51) and high Abbe number (50) simultaneously, leading to a reduced chromatic aberration and better optical performance.

Glistening-free, no calcification

Eyedeal IOL significantly improves unmet needs of current IOLs.

Glistening free, no calcification. Reduced incidence of postoperative dysphotopsia, posterior capsule opacification (PCO), tissue fibrosis.

Microincision, large optics

Superior mechanical properties, great elongation rate enables xPIB IOL with both microincision and large optics.

An optical diameter of 6.5mm or more significantly reduces postoperative dysphotopsia, improves otpical performance.

Great biocompatibility

xPIB shows great biocompatibility, biostability, and no inflammation after implantation.

A similar polyolefin-based polymer SIBS had been used as coating on drug-eluting stent for over 20 years.

Superb solutions

Its superb material characteristics make it a perfect candidate for accommodative IOL.

Eyecare professionals can look forward to a new era of improved treatments for their patients.
