  • Patent number: 10444540
    Abstract: The purpose of the present invention is to provide novel contact lens manufacturing method and contact lens capable of giving a lens inner surface shape reflecting a cornea shape of a contact lens wearer more easily than before with sufficient accuracy to reflect the cornea shape, thereby improving comfort during use. By using statistical information on a corneal surface shape obtained from a population of target eyes having a feature to be treated, a fitting for a rotationally-symmetric shape is performed based on a definitional equation using a radius of curvature (R) and a conic constant (C.C.) while a fitting for a rotationally-asymmetric shape is performed based on a definitional equation using a Zernike function. A shape of a lens rear surface (20) corresponding to the corneal surface shape specified by these definitional equations is adopted for a rear surface of a peripheral area of a contact lens (10).

  • Patent number: 10422745
    Abstract: A scattering absorber measurement device includes a light source for outputting a plurality of light pulses having different wavelengths input to a scattering absorber, a photodetector for detecting each light pulse propagating inside the scattering absorber and output a detection signal, and a computation unit for calculating a reduced scattering coefficient and an absorption coefficient according to a time-resolved spectroscopic measurement method on the basis of the detection signal. The computation unit determines data related to a ratio of reduced scattering coefficients among wavelengths of the plurality of light pulses and calculates the reduced scattering coefficient and the absorption coefficient on the basis of a time-resolved measurement profile of each wavelength based on the detection signal and the data related to the ratio.
