Title (EN) MULTIPART ELECTROWETTING INTRAOCULAR LENS FOR IN-SITU ASSEMBLY
(FR) LENTILLE INTRAOCULAIRE D'ÉLECTRO-MOUILLAGE À PLUSIEURS PARTIES POUR ASSEMBLAGE IN SITU
Abstract:
(EN) An eye-implantable electrowetting lens can be operated to control an overall optical power of an eye in which the device is implanted. A lens chamber of the electrowetting lens contains first and second fluids that are immiscible with each other and have different refractive indexes. By applying a voltage to electrodes of the lens, the optical power of the lens can be controlled by affecting the geometry of the interface between the fluids. To facilitate implantation of such an eye-implantable device, components of the device may be inserted individually and the device may be assembled in situ. In situ assembly could allow insertion of components of the device into the eye through an incision that is smaller than the assembled device, reduce a chance of failure of the device, reduce the mechanical and/or chemical seal requirements of the assembled, or allow for modular device design.
(FR) L'invention concerne une lentille d'électro-mouillage pouvant être implantée dans l'œil, permettant de réguler la puissance optique globale d'un œil dans lequel le dispositif est implanté. Une chambre de lentille de la lentille d'électro-mouillage contient des premier et second fluides qui sont miscibles l'un avec l'autre et qui ont des indices de réfraction différents. L'application d'une tension aux électrodes de la lentille permet de réguler la puissance optique de la lentille par modification de la géométrie de l'interface entre les fluides. Pour faciliter l'implantation d'un tel dispositif implantable dans l'œil, des éléments du dispositif peuvent être insérés individuellement et le dispositif peut être assemblé in situ. L'assemblage in situ pourrait permettre l'insertion d'éléments du dispositif dans l'œil au moyen d'une incision qui est plus petite que le dispositif assemblé, réduire un risque de défaillance du dispositif, réduire les nécessités en joints mécaniques et/ou chimiques de l'assemblage, ou permettre une conception de dispositif modulaire.
