  • Patent number: 7988988
    Abstract: A biomedical device, such as a contact lens, has a surface linked to a polymer comprising boronic acid moieties. The boronic acid monomeric units may be derived from an ethylenically unsaturated monomer containing a boronic acid moiety, such as a vinylphenyl boronic acid or a (meth)acrylamido phenyl boronic acid. The boronic acid moieties may be complexed with mucin, especially epithelial mucin.

  • Patent number: 7832856
    Abstract: A contact lens is coated with a first polymer, such as a boronic acid-containing copolymer, having affinity to mucin, and a second polymer. The second polymer improves initial comfort of the contact lens. During wear of the contact lens, the second polymer is removed from the contact lens, by blinking and/or tear fluids, and mucin complexes with the first polymer on the contact lens surface.

  • Patent number: 7780678
    Abstract: Methods for enhancing the lubricity of implant delivery devices are provided. The present methods of enhancing the lubricity of an intraocular lens inserter reduce the force required to express an intraocular lens therefrom. By reducing the force required to express an intraocular lens from an inserter, intraocular lens delivery is improved.
