|20140135920||Hydrophilicity Alteration System and Method - A system/method allowing hydrophilicity alteration of a polymeric material (PM) is disclosed. The PM hydrophilicity alteration changes the PM characteristics by decreasing the PM refractive index, increasing the PM electrical conductivity, and increasing the PM weight. The system/method incorporates a laser radiation source that generates tightly focused laser pulses within a three-dimensional portion of the PM to affect these changes in PM properties. The system/method may be applied to the formation of customized intraocular lenses comprising material (PLM) wherein the lens created using the system/method is surgically positioned within the eye of the patient. The implanted lens refractive index may then be optionally altered in situ with laser pulses to change the optical properties of the implanted lens and thus achieve optimal corrected patient vision. This system/method permits numerous in situ modifications of an implanted lens as the patient's vision changes with age.||05-15-2014|
|20140066946||Preloaded Intraocular Lens (IOL) System and Method - A preloaded intraocular lens (IOL) system/method utilizing haptic compression is disclosed. The disclosed system/method utilizes an IOL packaged in a compressed state that is inserted into a patient using a cartridge and lumen through which the IOL is advanced. Within this context the haptics to the IOL are wrapped around the IOL in a coplanar fashion during the loading of the IOL to permit the IOL to be shipped and stored in a compressed state. This compressed state is achieve by wrapping the haptics of the IOL during the manufacturing process to ensure that the IOL is properly aligned and thus delivered in a predetermined orientation within the patient's eye. This compressed packaging of the IOL permits a more uniform and consistent placement of the IOL in the patient and eliminates the potential for physician error during the critical IOL placement procedure.||03-06-2014|
|20130103144||SYSTEM FOR FORMING AND MODIFYING LENSES AND LENSES FORMED THEREBY - A lens for placement in a human eye, such as an intraocular lens, has at least some of its optical properties modified with a laser. The lens preferably contains at least 5% by weight UV absorber so commercially feasible rates of manufacture can be achieved. The laser forms modified loci in the lens where the modified loci have a different refractive index than the refractive index of the material before modification. The same laser modification technique can be used on the cornea in situ.||04-25-2013|
|20100228345||SYSTEM FOR FORMING AND MODIFYING LENSES AND LENSES FORMED THEREBY - A lens for placement in a human eye, such as intraocular lens, has at least some of its optical properties formed with a laser. The laser forms modified loci in the lens when the modified loci have a different refractive index than the refractive index of the material before modification. Different patterns of modified loci can provide selected dioptic power, toric adjustment, and/or aspheric adjustment provided. Preferably both the anterior and posterior surfaces of the lens are planar for ease of placement in the human eye.||09-09-2010|
|20100225014||SYSTEM FOR CHARACTERIZING A CORNEA AND OBTAINING AN OPTHALMIC LENS - A system for determining the shape of a cornea of an eye illuminates at least one of the interior surface, the posterior surface, and the interior region of the eye with infrared light of a wavelength that can generate fluorescent light from the portion of the cornea illuminated. The generated fluorescent light is then detected. A step of illuminating can comprise focusing the infrared light in a plurality of different planes substantially perpendicular to the optical axis of the eye. From the detected light it is possible to create a map of at least a portion of the interior surface, at least a portion of the posterior surface, and/or portion of the interior region of the cornea. Clarity of vision can be determined by generating autofluorescence from proteins in the pigment epithelial cells of the retina.||09-09-2010|
