  • Publication number: 20190231185
    Abstract: Disclosed is a method for determining an updated visual correction need for designing a new vision correcting device of an individual already having a previous vision correcting device previously designed to correct his/her vision, wherein, in a first step, a previous level of correction of the previous vision correcting device is acquired, in a second step, a current vision acuity parameter of the individual wearing the previous vision correcting device is assessed, and, in a third step, the updated visual correction need is determined based on the previous level of correction of the previous vision correcting device acquired in the first step and on the current vision acuity parameter assessed in the second step. A complementary visual correction need can also be determined.

  • Publication number: 20170133560
    Abstract: Embodiments of the invention include a plurality of light emitting devices (1), one of the light emitting devices in the plurality being configured to emit light having a first peak wavelength. A wavelength converting layer (30) is disposed in a path of light emitted by the plurality of light emitting devices. The wavelength converting layer (30) absorbs light emitted by the light emitting device and emits light having a second peak wavelength. The light emitting devices (1) are mechanically connected to each other only through the wavelength converting layer (30). In other embodiments a light converting layer is placed over the light emitting devices and an adhesive or optical element layer is placed at the side surfaces and over the light converting layer, the light emitting devices are mechanically connected to each other only through the wavelength converting layer.
