Title (EN) METHOD FOR POLISHING INTRAOCULAR LENSES
(FR) PROCEDE DE POLISSAGE DE CRISTALLINS ARTIFICIELS
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method for polishing targeted areas (132) of an IOL (32) while leaving other areas unpolished such as sharp posterior edges designed to inhibit PCO. In the preferred embodiment, the polishing method utilizes a stream of polishing agent directed at the IOL which is mounted to a holder (40) during the polishing operation. In this manner, only the targeted areas of the IOL polished while the other areas remain unpolished and sharp as intended. The method is suitable for in-line automated IOL manufacturing.
(FR)L'invention concerne un procédé de polissage de zones ciblées (132) d'un cristallin artificiel (32) tout en laissant d'autres zones non polies telles que des arêtes postérieures vives conçues de manière à inhiber l'opacification de capsules postérieures. Dans un mode de réalisation préféré, le procédé de polissage utilise un flux d'agent de polissage dirigé vers le cristallin artificiel, ce dernier étant monté sur un support (40) durant l'opération de polissage. Ainsi, seules les zones ciblées du cristallin artificielle sont polies, alors que d'autres zones restent non polies et vives, tel que souhaité. Ce procédé convient à la fabrication en ligne, automatisée de cristallins artificiels.
