  • Publication number: 20210181379
    Abstract: The invention relates to an ophthalmic product which comprises a sealed and autoclave-sterilized lens package including (1) a post-autoclave packaging solution containing a polymeric surfactant having an HLB value of from about 11 to about 16 and a Mn of from about 800 to about 20,000 Daltons and (2) a readily-usable silicone hydrogel (SiHy) contact lens immersed in the packaging solution. The readily-usable SiHy contact lens comprises the polymeric surfactant thereon providing an excellent wettability to the readily-usable SiHy contact lens directly out of the lens package, and also the leachable polymeric surfactant which is physically distributed in the polymer matrix of the SiHy contact lens and can be released to the eye of a patient for at least 7 days of daily wear and to replenish the lens surface-bound polymeric surfactant to provide sustainable wettabilities to the contact lens and the eye.

  • Publication number: 20210131923
    Abstract: The invention provides a method for imaging and thickness determination of coatings on coated contact lenses. The method comprises selectively staining a negatively-charged-groups-containing coating over the lens body of a coated contact lens by immersing the coated contact lens in an aqueous solution comprising a fluorescently-labeled polycationic polymer and having a pH of from about 6.5 to 8.0; orthogonally cutting the selectively-stained coated contact lens; and determining the thickness of the coating on the coated contact lens. In addition, the invention provides a method for selecting a candidate coating material comprising negatively charged groups for applying a coating with a desired thickness onto silicone hydrogel contact lenses and for optimizing a coating process for producing coated silicone hydrogel contact lenses with a desired thickness coating thereon.

  • Patent number: 10726801
    Abstract: An electronic device includes a backlight unit and a liquid crystal layer disposed proximate to the backlight unit. The backlight unit is configured to provide illumination across a viewable display area of the electronic device. The viewable display area includes a plurality of zones. The liquid crystal layer is configured to selectively filter the illumination provided by the backlight unit. A processor is coupled to the backlight unit and to the liquid crystal layer. The processor is configured to determine, based on data indicative of content to be displayed, a respective backlight brightness level of each zone of the plurality of zones and to generate liquid crystal control signaling for the liquid crystal layer. The processor is further configured to adjust the respective backlight brightness levels and/or the liquid crystal control signaling, to compensate for distortions arising from defects in the backlight unit and/or the liquid crystal layer.
