  • Publication number: 20190302481
    Abstract: Presbyopia treatment and anti-myopia spectacles comprise a negative refractive element facing an object and a positive refractive element facing a patient eye. The negative refractive element has a central zone with a strong negative refractive power. The positive refractive element has a central zone with a less strong positive refractive power. The front focal point of the central zone of the positive lens does not have to overlap with the front focal point of the central zone of the negative lens. The negative refractive element and the positive refractive element are axially separated by a relatively small distance such that the combination of the two refractive elements is compact enough to be made into an easily wearable spectacle.

  • Publication number: 20190142677
    Abstract: Embodiments provide cloud-based ophthalmic eyelid treatment monitoring systems and cloud-based methods for monitoring ophthalmic eyelid treatment. The monitoring system includes a moldable warming device, a monitor, and a cloud server. The moldable warming device includes a heating disc, a resonance frequency stimulation vibration generator (RFSVG), a coupling device, a mask, and a sensor array. The mask is configured to hold the heating disc, the RFSVG, and the coupling device for use in parallel utility. The sensor array is configured to generate a data stream responsive to a vibration and heating profile of a user's individual patient eyelid and periorbital three-dimensional anatomy and surface topography. The monitor is configured to receive the data stream from the sensor array and configured to transmit the data stream to the cloud server.

  • Publication number: 20190029878
    Abstract: Embodiments provide a moldable warming device. The moldable warming device includes a heating disc, a harmonic resonance frequency stimulation vibration generator (RFSVG), a coupling device, a mask, and a sensor array. The mask is configured to hold the heating disc, the RFSVG, and the coupling device for use in parallel utility. The sensor array is configured to determine tuning parameters of a vibration and heating profile of a user's individual eyelid and periorbital three-dimensional anatomy and surface topography. The moldable warming device is configured to provide an entire eyelid surface and periorbital structures with therapeutic warmth and tuned harmonic resonance frequency stimulation vibration to mobilize Meibom lipids and stimulate flow of the mobilized Meibom lipids from the user's Meibomian glands.

  • Publication number: 20150216615
    Abstract: The present invention relates to methods for determining meniscal size and shape for use in designing therapies for the treatment of various joint diseases. The invention uses an image of a joint that is processed for analysis. Analysis can include, for example, generating a thickness map, a cartilage curve, or a point cloud. This information is used to determine the extent of the cartilage defect or damage and to design an appropriate therapy, including, for example, an implant. Adjustments to the designed therapy are made to account for the materials used.

  • Patent number: 7799077
    Abstract: This invention is directed to orthopedic implants and systems. The invention also relates to methods of implant design, manufacture, modeling and implantation as well as to surgical tools and kits used therewith. The implants are designed by analyzing the articular surface to be corrected and creating a device with an anatomic or near anatomic fit; or selecting a pre-designed implant having characteristics that give the implant the best fit to the existing defect.
