  • Patent number: 11509755
    Abstract: The present invention is directed to a method and means for enabling contact lens wearers to photograph their own eyes using an electronic device with a camera such as an iPhone with a macro lens, for example, Olloclip® Macro Pro Lens Set 7× lens, and a custom three-dimensional printed eyecup attachment. The eyecup attachment is designed to position the camera at a suitable and reproducible distance from the eye to ensure that the system can focus appropriately on the lens details. The eyecup attachment also serves to block stray light and diffuse the ambient lighting. In addition, the eyecup attachment ensures that the camera is held in the correct orientation while photos are being captured. The capture images are analyzed using image processing software to determine the angel of rotation of the contact lens.

  • Publication number: 20210101352
    Abstract: Disclosed in this specification is a process for manufacturing a thermochromic contact lens. The process includes (1) selecting a photoinitiator that absorbs at a first wavelength and at least one thermochromic dye that displays substantial absorption at the first wavelength when the dye is at a first temperature and exhibits at least an 80% reduction in absorbance at the first wavelength at a second temperature, (2) maintaining the reaction mixture at the second temperature and (3) providing cure light that includes the first wavelength.
