Title (EN) FEMTOSECOND LASER MICROMACHINING OF A CONTACT LENS AND A CONTACT LENS MANUFACTURED THEREBY
(FR) MICRO-USINAGE PAR LASER FEMTOSECONDE D'UNE LENTILLE DE CONTACT ET LENTILLE DE CONTACT FABRIQUEE DE CETTE MANIERE
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of providing a feature on a contact lens including applying a femtosecond laser beam to ablate at least a portion of the contact lens to provide the feature on the contact lens. In one embodiment, the femtosecond laser beam has a pulse width between 10x10-15 seconds and 200x10-15 seconds, and has a wavelength between 100 nm and 1500 nm. A contact lens is also provided including at least one fenestration fluidically connecting the anterior surface and the posterior surface, the fenestration being formed using a femtosecond laser in a manner that areas surrounding the fenestration are substantially free of heat damage.
(FR)L'invention porte sur un procédé destiné à conférer une caratéristique à une lentille de contact, lequel procédé consiste à appliquer un faisceau laser femtoseconde pour effectuer l'ablation d'au moins une partie de la lentille de contact et conférer la caractéristique à la lentille de contact. Dans un mode de réalisation, le faisceau laser femtoseconde possède une largeur d'impulsion comprise entre 10x10-15 secondes et 200x10-15 secondes, et une longueur d'onde comprise entre 100 nm et 1500 nm. L'invention se rapporte aussi à une lentille de contact comprenant au moins une perforation reliant de manière fluidique la surface antérieure à la surface postérieure, la perforation étant formée au moyen d'un laser femtoseconde de manière que les zones entourant la perforation ne présentent sensiblement pas de dommages thermiques.
