  • Publication number: 20190216645
    Abstract: The present invention provides improved surgical devices for ab-externo sub-retinal fluid drainage and methods for using the same. The surgical devices are illuminated, allow for a reinforced mark to be placed on the sclera, feature a deployable needle, and enable direct visualization of retinal pathology via transillumination of the sclera. The surgical devices allow more precise localization of the site of retinal tears and subretinal fluid drainage.

  • Publication number: 20150352947
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide a new smart fuel cap and system for an improved refueling system of a vehicle. In particular, the smart fuel cap can be in communication with a user's smart phone for generating and sending a fuel order to a refuel service provider. According to some aspects, sensors of the smart fuel cap and/or the user's smart phone can be used for an input of a low fuel condition for the fuel order which can be specific to the vehicle's location. In some embodiments, the ability to determine and use the vehicle's location can be used to selectively allow access to an otherwise secure fuel cap for refueling.

  • Patent number: 8945140
    Abstract: The present disclosure is directed to improved phacoemulsification procedures involving the use of processed non-visual three-dimensional data (i.e. diagnostic scan data) to provide a surgeon with additional guidance concerning the distance separating a working end of a phacoemulsification instrument and the posterior capsule of the eye during a surgical procedure involving the removal of the crystalline lens of an eye. Such information is implemented to aid the surgeon in cutting or scoring the lens to a desired depth while minimizing the risk of penetrating the posterior portion of the capsule with the working end of the instrument. Some embodiments provide for the visual and/or auditory conveyance of distance information to the surgeon. Additional embodiments can provide for overlaying visual representations of selected structure information with the images provided to the surgeon.

  • Publication number: 20140066703
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to minimally invasive surgical instruments and procedures using those instruments wherein the instruments include optical elements (e.g. a percutaneous optical channel (POC), a retaining plug and a stereoscopic imaging device (e.g. a stereoscopic camera) and a stereoscopic display device. The instruments be part of a system used to provide a surgeon with an indirect stereoscopic view of a surgical area undergoing a minimally invasive surgical procedure in a way that is perceived by the surgeon as being similar to that of an open surgery and providing a natural and intuitive environment to perform the surgery with a high degree of control.

  • Publication number: 20120022408
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention are directed to improved surgical procedures such as ophthalmic procedures that utilize overlaid visual representations of three-dimensional data or other data with direct or indirect visual images of a surgical region (e.g. the eye) to provide improved information to a surgeon to speed surgical procedures and/or to provide improved outcomes of those procedures. In some embodiments, ophthalmic procedures are combined cataract removal and astigmatism reduction procedures. In other embodiments the ophthalmic procedures are corneal refractive surgical procedures that reshape the cornea to reduce astigmatism or other aberrations. In some ophthalmic procedures the three-dimensional data is topography data associated with the anterior surface of the cornea. In some embodiments, the three-dimensional data may be enhanced or replaced with aberrometric data associated with the optical path of the eye.

  • Publication number: 20120022546
    Abstract: Specific embodiments of the invention are directed to improved phacoemulsification procedures involving the use of processed non-visual three-dimensional data (i.e. diagnostic scan data) to provide a surgeon with additional guidance (i.e. more than that generally obtained from visual observation of the working area) concerning the distance separating a working end of a phacoemulsification instrument and the posterior portion of the capsule of the eye during surgical procedures involving the removal of the crystalline lens of an eye (e.g. a cataract removal procedure). Such separation (i.e. distance or gap) information may be used to aid the surgeon in cutting or scoring the lens to a desired depth while minimizing the risk of penetrating the posterior portion of the capsule with the working end of the instrument.
