    A conversation with Optical Sciences Professor and Inventor Jim Schwiegerling, Ph.D.

    "I’m a user and not just a maker. I am thrilled with being able to do my outdoor activities, work at the computer and read without being encumbered by glasses. I see like I am young again." -Jim Schwiegerling

    During the course of your work, maybe you've had that thought: "I can solve this." Join us as we speak with Optical Sciences and Ophthalmology Professor Jim Schwiegerling, who is also the inventor of an intraocular trifocal lens for people with cataracts or myopia. Tech Launch Arizona helped walk Dr. Schwiegerling through the commercialization process and helped protect, and license his invention to a global medical company, Alcon and it is now helping over 500,000 patients see better -- one of whom is Schwiegerling himself.

    Tech Launch Arizona's Senior Licensing Manager for the Wyant College of Optical Sciences Kennedy Nyairo will lead this discussion and field your questions.
