(FR) LENTILLE INTRAOCULAIRE À PHOTOSENSIBILISATEUR ET PROCÉDÉ DESTINÉ À MODIFIER L'INDICE DE RÉFRACTION DE LA LENTILLE
Abstract
(EN)
An intraocular lens comprising an optical, polymeric material with predetermine regions that have been irradiated with light from a laser to form refractive structures. The refractive structures are characterized by a change in refractive index within the irradiated regions of the lens with little or no scattering loss. To facilitate the formation of the refractive structures the optical, polymeric material is prepared from at least one monomer having a photofunctional group, the monomer having a two-photon cross- section of at least 10 GM. The invention is also directed to a method for modifying the refractive index of an intraocular lens prior to the surgical insertion of the lens in a human eye. The described irradiation process is used in a manufacturing environment to create refractive structures in the intraocular lens. The method includes irradiating a solvated intraocular lens at predetermined regions with light from a laser to form refractive structures.

L'invention concerne une lentille intraoculaire comprenant un matériau polymère optique avec des régions prédéterminées qui ont été irradiées avec de la lumière provenant d'un laser pour former des structures de réfraction. Les structures de réfraction sont caractérisées par un changement de l'indice de réfraction à l'intérieur des régions irradiées de la lentille avec peu ou pas de perte de diffusion. Pour faciliter la formation des structures de réfraction, le matériau polymère optique est préparé à partir d'au moins un monomère ayant un groupe photofonctionnel, le monomère présentant une section transversale à deux photons d'au moins 10 GM. L'invention concerne également un procédé destiné à modifier l'indice de réfraction d'une lentille intraoculaire avant l'insertion chirurgicale de la lentille dans un œil humain. Le procédé d'irradiation décrit est utilisé dans un environnement de fabrication pour créer des structures de réfraction dans la lentille intraoculaire. Le procédé consiste en l'irradiation d'une lentille intraoculaire solvatée à des régions prédéterminées avec la lumière provenant d'un laser pour former des structures de réfraction.
