  • Patent number: 9421721
    Abstract: A system and method for designing scleral lenses includes a computer, a camera and a lathe connected by a network. The camera captures a set of sagittal images at each of a set of sagittal planes of an eye. A combined sagittal image is created from each set of sagittal images. A spline curve is defined for each combined sagittal image creating a set of spline curves. A set of back surface curves is created from the set of spline curves. A back lens surface is generated from the set of surface curves. A front lens surface is generated adjacent the back lens surface. A point cloud is generated from the back lens surface and the front lens surface. The point cloud is converted to a lens image. The lens is converted to a text file for use by the lathe to cut the scleral lens.

  • Patent number: 9016863
    Abstract: The different illustrative embodiments provide a method, computer program product, and apparatus for manufacturing a scleral contact lens. A number of dimensions for the scleral lens is generated based on a shape of an eye. An alteration to a first wavefront of light caused by the first wavefront of light traveling through a pupil of the eye is identified. A modification configured to be made to a posterior surface of the scleral lens is generated based on the alteration. The modification removes the alteration for a second wavefront of light traveling through the scleral lens and the pupil of the eye.

  • Patent number: 7862176
    Abstract: A method, computer program product, and data processing system for designing a contact lens. A sagittal image of an anterior portion of an eye having a sclera is measured. Measuring is performed using a digital imaging device. Measuring includes measuring the sclera. A sagittal image is formed. A shape of the eye is derived using the sagittal image, wherein the shape includes the sclera. The shape is converted to a curvature of a contact lens. The curvature is designed such that the contact lens, once manufactured, can be worn over a surface of the eye.
