  • Publication number: 20200086474
    Abstract: An adjustable length handle having a first handle member, a tubular shaped second handle member and an adjusting mechanism interconnecting the two handle members to shorten or lengthen the handle length. The second handle member has an interior channel that receives the first handle member. An inner surface of the channel is in opposing relation to an outer surface of the first handle member. The adjusting mechanism comprises a longitudinally disposed length adjusting slot and one or more laterally disposed engaging slots in the inner surface that receive an engaging member which extends outward from the outer surface of the first handle member. When in the length adjusting slot, the engaging member allows linear movement of one handle member relative to the other handle member to adjust the handle length. When in one of the engaging slots, the engaging member prevents such linear movement to fix the handle length.

  • Publication number: 20040204703
    Abstract: A system for correcting presbyopia provides a laser adapted to sculpt the cornea in two concentric zones. The first larger zone is treated with a positive diopter correction to allow eye to focus on near objects. A second smaller zone is then treated with a negative diopter correction to allow the cornea to focus on far objects. In one embodiment, the system directs the laser in a series of collapsing crescents to sculpt the zones.
