  • Publication number: 20230229020
    Abstract: A contact lens (201) includes an optic zone (202) that is centred on an optical axis (219), and a peripheral zone (204) surrounds the optic zone (202). A cross-sectional slice through the optic zone (202) along a meridian comprises a series of successive arcs (203a-203h) having a radial curvature power profile. The radial curvature power profile increases monotonically with radial distance from the optical axis (219). Light rays from a distant point source passing through the midpoint of each arc converge toward a point (215) on the first optical axis (203a-203h). For each arc (203a-203h), light rays from a distant point source pass through that arc (203a-203h) and converge towards a point (216) that is spaced away from the optical axis by a first distance. Methods of designing and manufacturing such contact lenses (201) are also described.

  • Publication number: 20230194896
    Abstract: A contact lens (201) and methods of manufacturing such a lens are described. The lens (201) includes an optic zone (202). The optic zone (202) comprises a central region (205), the central region (205) having a first optical axis (219), a base radial curvature power, a base radial sagittal power, and a centre of curvature that is on the first optical axis (219). The optic zone (202) comprises an annular region (203), wherein at a point halfway across the width of the annular region (203) the annular region (203) has a radial curvature power of X, wherein X is greater than the base radial curvature power. The annular region (203) has an off-axis centre of curvature that is a first distance from the optical axis (219) such that, at a point halfway across its width, the annular region (203) has a sagittal power of Y, wherein Y is greater than the base radial sagittal power, and wherein Y is less than X.

  • Patent number: 10831358
    Abstract: Methods and devices for selectively presenting a user interface for an email application are provided. More particularly, a change in the operating mode of a multiple screen device from a multiple screen operating mode in portrait orientation to a multiple screen operating mode in a landscape orientation, or vice versa, can be determined. Moreover, a change in the operating mode can effect a change in a presentation of a user interface associated with an email application. More particularly, a presentation of a user interface can be retained, where the number of screens of the device in view of the user is changed, provided a user interface for the email application remains in view of the user after the change in operating mode.
