In 2008 Dr. Suven Bhattacharjee, an ophthalmic surgeon started thinking of a pupil expander that would be user friendly. Paper napkin drawings and midnight note scribbling became common events. The wealth of work done by predecessors had to be capitalized on but some out of the box thinking was required to make that quantum leap. It took five years to give a meaningful form to that thought. All existing pupil expansion devices had a gap with an upper and lower part within which the pupil margin was wedged. It was fundamentally wrong to try and push this biplanar structure through a slit corneal incision – it would obviously snag the incision. All existing devices required an injector to circumvent this problem of snagging. In 2013 Dr. Bhattacharjee filed a PCT patent application for a device with a radically different concept.
