  • Publication number: 20090048504
    Abstract: Systems, methods, and devices are provided for creating and applying electrodes and electrode systems to a wound or skin. An electrode may be applied as a single electrode strip using a dispenser. An electrode may also be cut to size from a single sheet of electrode. Additionally, an electrode may be formed from a plurality of electrode segments which may be connected together. Electrodes can also be incorporated as part of drainage tubes. A medical electrode kit may be provided that includes multiple electrode segments and connectors, multiple electrodes, and multiple control modules. In addition, electrodes or electrode systems may be provided with a color scoring chart. An electrode system may be configured to interface with a selected body part. Electrode systems may include sensors and electrodes configured for application to areas outside of a wound or the skin intended to be treated.

  • Publication number: 20060274262
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method for designing and making a customized ophthalmic lens, such as a contact lens or an intraocular lens, capable of correcting high-order aberrations of an eye. The posterior surface of the customized contact lens is designed to accommodate the corneal topography of an eye. The design of the customized ophthalmic lens is evaluated and optimized in an optimizing routine using a computational model eye that reproduces the aberrations and corneal topography of an eye. The present invention also provides a system and method for characterizing the optical metrology of a customized ophthalmic lens that is designed to correct aberrations of an eye. Furthermore, the present invention provides a business model and method for placing an order for a pair of customized ophthalmic lenses.

  • Publication number: 20060215109
    Abstract: An ophthalmic lens includes an optical zone having a center and a spaced-apart periphery. The optical zone has a first corrective power range in a first region and a second corrective power range in an annular region surrounding the first optical zone. The second corrective power is corrective of spherical aberration of an eye. The optical zone has a power profile that gradually changes from the first corrective power to the second corrective power. A central progressive zone that provides intermediate vision correction may be applied to a central region of the lens. The progressive zone has a diameter that is less than or equal to the diameter of an aperture of a pupil when subjected to bright light.

  • Publication number: 20060055884
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a method for designing and making a contact lens which comprises stiffening rib features that provide even distribution of pressure from the lens over the cornea of an eye and/or allows the lens structure to maintain balance of forces for consistent and correct lens orientation on an eye during lens translation or eye lid movement. The invention also provides a soft contact lens comprising stiffening rib features that provides localized directional reinforcements to the lens structure to evenly distribute pressure from the lens over the cornea of an eye and/or to maintain balance of forces for consistent and correct lens orientation on an eye during lens translation or eye lid movement.

  • Publication number: 20050219458
    Abstract: The present invention is related to a contact lens for correcting severe spherical aberration. The contact lens of the invention comprises an anterior surface having a first optical zone and an opposite posterior surface having a second optical zone. The first optical zone is defined by a mathematical function including a conic term and at least one 4th or higher order mathematic term. The first optical zone, in combination with the second optical zone, provides a power profile in which the optical power of the lens decreases outwardly from the optical axis to the outer periphery such that the optical power at a 6 mm diameter is from about 1 to 5 diopters smaller than a manifest refractive power for an eye. The present invention also provides a series of contact lenses and a method for making contact lenses of the invention.
