3M Press On Optics

Bulky eye patches or thick eye glasses are not the most desirable long-term solution for those experiencing visual disorders, however it’s often difficult to find a remedy that’s both effective and comfortable.  Committed to solving this challenge through innovative technology, 3M has developed the 3M Press-On Optics, which offers a permanent or temporary correction for strabismus (cross eyes), amblyopia (lazy eye), nystagmus (involuntary eye movement) and other visual disorders.

Simple, therapeutic and inexpensive, the Press-On Optics do not add any noticeable weight or thickness to the spectacle; they can simply be cut out and placed onto the back of the patients’ eyeglasses for correction. The technology has had life-changing implications for patients who have avoided surgeries or regained their eye strength.
