  • Publication number: 20220084687
    Abstract: This method for predicting evolution over time of at least one vision-related parameter of at least one person includes: obtaining successive values for the person, respectively corresponding to repeated measurements over time of at least one parameter of a first predetermined type for the person; predicting by at least one processor the evolution over time of the vision-related parameter of the person from the obtained successive values for the person, by using a prediction model associated with a group of individuals; the predicting including associating at least part of the successive values for the person with the predicted evolution over time of the vision-related parameter of the person, the associating including jointly processing the successive values associated with the same parameter of the first predetermined type. The predicted evolution depends differentially on each of the jointly processed values.

  • Publication number: 20220043280
    Abstract: A method to select or to conceive/design lenses is provided. The method may be applied to lenses having effect of myopia control, visual fatigue relief, etc. In one aspect, a predictive model that ranks myopia control solutions according to visual, behavioral, and biometric parameter is provided. The predictive model may be built based on the myopic eye characteristics, the behavior of the wearers, and the defocus induced by the myopia control solution. In another aspect, a method, a computer-readable medium, and an apparatus for evaluating the efficacy of an ophthalmic lens in controlling at least one sightedness impairment (e.g., myopia) of at least one wearer of the ophthalmic lens are provided. The apparatus may determine, based on a predetermined relationship model, the efficacy of the ophthalmic lens for at least one wearer from representative data corresponding to the at least one wearer.
