Title: A LENS STORAGE UNIT WITH PROGRAMMABLE AND COMMUNICATION ELEMENTS FOR MONITORING THE CONDITION OF LENSES AND THEIR RESPONSE TO GEO-SOCIAL PHENOMENA
Abstract:
The present invention provides apparatus for correlating geo-social phenomena to the condition of an ophthalmic lens. The apparatus comprises: a programmable Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit for storing one or more ophthalmic lenses, wherein the Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit includes a processor in digital communication with a digital media storage device, wherein the digital media storage device stores executable software code; a transmitter and a receiver in logical communication with the processor and also in logical communication with a communication network. The software is executable upon demand and operative with processor to; transmit and receive digital data via the transmitter; process stored digital data from one or more inputs and sources descriptive of a plurality of Events; determine an order of precedence of records descriptive of Events, wherein the order of precedence is determined based upon Events that have an impact in a ophthalmic lens' optic performance; identify one or more events that can affect the optic performance of a ophthalmic lens; monitor the optic performance of an ophthalmic lens in a Ophthalmic Lens Storage Unit; correlate a change in the optic performance of the ophthalmic lens in the base unit with the identified events; and transmit one or more signals to a predetermined network access device based upon the correlation of an event and the change in optical performance of the ophthalmic lens.
