  • Patent number: 10724590
    Abstract: A hinge for eyeglasses, which includes first elements for pivoting to a front of eyeglasses, and second elements for pivoting to a temple of eyeglasses, and which include a leaf spring that defines a cavity. The second pivoting elements include an abutment head that can rotate about a rotation axis and is configured to be associated rigidly with one end of the temple. The abutment head includes a protrusion inserted into the cavity of the leaf spring so as to be retained in the cavity. The rotation of the abutment head about the rotation axis in a first direction of rotation produces the flexing of the leaf spring by the protrusion and the consequent rotation of the temple.

  • Patent number: 10709550
    Abstract: Apparatuses, systems and methods for providing improved intraocular lenses (IOLs), include features for reducing side effects, such as halos, glare and best focus shifts, in multifocal refractive lenses and extended depth of focus lenses. Exemplary ophthalmic lenses can include a continuous, power progressive aspheric surface based on two or more merged optical zones, the aspheric surface being defined by a single aspheric equation. Continuous power progressive intraocular lenses can mitigate optical side effects that typically result from abrupt optical steps. Aspheric power progressive and aspheric extended depth of focus lenses can be combined with diffractive lens profiles to further enhance visual performance while minimizing dysphotopsia effects. The combination can provide an increased depth of focus that is greater than an individual depth of focus of either the refractive profile or the diffractive profile.

  • Patent number: 10712477
    Abstract: A lens structure formed by materials in different refractive indexes includes a sphere, a first lens and a separation layer which is disposed between the sphere and the first lens. The sphere and the first lens have a different refractive index and the sphere is a round ball. The first lens is formed on the sphere that part of the sphere is exposed out of the first lens, and the first lens includes a first light absorption curve. The separation layer includes a transparent section opposite to the first light absorption curve. When a light beam passes through the second portion of the sphere to form a first light condensing effect and enter the sphere, the light beam will then pass through the transparent section to enter the first lens, forming a second light condensing effect after passing through the first light absorption curve.

  • Patent number: 10712573
    Abstract: For users exploiting near-to-eye (NR2I) displays for augmented reality and/or correction of low vision then the user is typically going to wear the immersive or non-immersive NR2I displays for specific tasks, for specific visual environments, etc. and hence there is an issue of repeatedly attaching and removing the NR2I display. Further, in the majority of applications irrespective of whether for short-term, long-term, low vision, augmented reality, etc. there is a conflicting tradeoff between user comfort, ease of attachment, minimizing intrusiveness and aesthetics. Accordingly, a means of pivotably attaching and supporting a NR2I display is provided wherein the pivotable mounts may be permanently attached, attached, or demountably attached to a frame which may include for some user's prescription lenses.
