Leading eye hospital chooses plasma treatment

Moorfields Eye Hospital NHS Foundation Trust is the leading provider of eye health services in the UK and a world-class centre of excellence for ophthalmic research and education. With a reputation for providing the highest quality of ophthalmic care they are committed to sustaining and building on their pioneering legacy and ensuring they remain at the cutting edge of developments in ophthalmology.

Researchers at Moorfields contacted Henniker after becoming aware that many contact lens manufacturers already use plasma treatment to increase patient comfort and wettablity of rigid gas permeable contact lenses.

Henniker’s team have a wealth of experience in this area and could quickly recommend a specific configuration to suit the proposed research into surface treatment of copolymers composed of fluorine, silicone and alkyl methacrylates.

After successfully meeting the brief set by Moorfields, we are pleased to announce that Henniker have been selected as the equipment supplier and technical partner for this new avenue of research, further confirming us as one of the UK’s leading plasma technology suppliers.
