Title: AN OPHTHALMIC LENS STORING UNIT WITH PROGRAMMABLE AND COMMUNICATION ELEMENTS FOR MONITORING THE USE AND AUTOMATED ORDERING
Abstract:
The present invention provides apparatus for storing one or more ophthalmic lenses. The apparatus comprises a programmable Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit for disinfecting one or more ophthalmic lenses. The Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit includes a processor in logical communication with a digital storage and which uses executable software stored in the digital storage and operative with the processor to; establish a connection between the Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit and an associated network device, wherein the connection is suitable for communication of digital data and wherein the disinfecting base unit stores one or more ophthalmic lenses; store a record comprising digital data descriptive of a number of disinfecting cycles the one or more ophthalmic lenses have been subjected to by the disinfecting base unit; generate an automated order for one or both of: additional ophthalmic lenses and Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit's components, based upon the stored digital data; and transmit said automated order via the associated network device.
