  • Patent number: 8758433
    Abstract: A system and method for performing an ocular surgical procedure is provided. The design provides an intra-ocular lens (IOL) to an eye through an incision in the eye by assessing IOL insertion conditions, translating said IOL insertion conditions into a desired force range for insertion of the IOL via the incision, controlling a power source to move the IOL to the eye, monitoring conditions, such as force encountered, while controlling the power source. The design employs feedback of the force encountered and selectively alters force applied based on force encountered.

  • Publication number: 20130268070
    Abstract: An accommodating intraocular lens is provided in which a deflectable lens element is anchored to a substrate along its optical axis to define a fluid filled space. Fluid-filled haptics disposed in fluid communication with the space vary the fluid volume in the space responsive to forces applied by the ciliary muscles, thereby causing the periphery of the lens element to deflect relative to the substrate and changing the optical power of the intraocular lens.

  • Patent number: 8240309
    Abstract: Described herein are adjustable whole-nose nasal devices having a first passageway for communication with a first nasal passage and a second passageway for communication with a second nasal passage, an airflow resistor that inhibits expiration more than inspiration, and an adjustable connector. The adjustable connector may include one or more adjustable joints or regions that allow the whole-nose device to conform to the spacing between a subject's nostrils, and/or the orientation and angle of the subject's nostrils. Also described herein are whole-nose devices having a single airflow resistor communicating with both of a subject's nasal passages. Methods of treating a disorder using the whole-nose nasal devices are also described.

  • Publication number: 20080015689
    Abstract: An accommodating intraocular lens is provided having optical parameters that are altered in-situ, wherein an optic portion of the lens includes an actuator that deflects a lens element to alter the optical power of the lens, responsive to forces applied to a haptic portion to the lens by contraction of the ciliary muscles. Forces applied to the haptic portion may result in fluid displacements from or to the haptic portion from the actuator. Displacement of fluid to the actuator may either increase or reduce the degree of deflection imposed on the lens element by the actuator.
