Title
(EN) NON-INVASIVE PERIOCULAR DEVICE FOR DRY-EYE TREATMENT
(FR) DISPOSITIF PÉRI-OCULAIRE NON EFFRACTIF POUR LE TRAITEMENT DE L’ŒIL SEC
Abstract
(EN)
A periocular ring (15) configured to be worn on an eye of a user that includes a plurality of electrodes (21) spaced along the periocular ring (15); a microcontroller (22); and a lead assembly (23) extending along at least a portion of the periocular ring (15); wherein the lead assembly (23) extends between the microcontroller (22) and the plurality of electrodes (23) to operably couple the plurality of electrodes (23) to the microcontroller (22); and wherein the microcontroller (22) is configured to activate the plurality of electrodes (23) via the lead assembly (23) to stimulate a lacrimal gland of the user. The periocular ring (15) has an opening that defines an innermost diameter; and wherein, when the periocular ring (15) is worn on the eye of the user, a portion of the eye extends through the opening of the periocular ring (15).
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un anneau péri-oculaire (15) qui est configuré de sorte à être porté sur l'œil d’un utilisateur et qui comprend une pluralité d’électrodes (21) espacées le long de l’anneau péri-oculaire (15) ; un microcontrôleur (22) ; un ensemble de fils (23) s’étendant le long d’au moins une partie de l’anneau péri-oculaire (15) ; l’ensemble de fils (23) s’étendant entre le microcontrôleur (22) et la pluralité des électrodes (23) pour coupler fonctionnellement la pluralité des électrodes (23) au microcontrôleur (22) ; le microcontrôleur (22) étant configuré de sorte à activer la pluralité des électrodes (23) par l’intermédiaire de l’ensemble de fils (23) afin de stimuler une glande lacrymale de l’utilisateur. L’anneau péri-oculaire (15) présente une ouverture qui délimite un diamètre le plus interne ; lorsque l’anneau péri-oculaire (15) est porté sur l'œil de l'utilisateur, une partie de l'œil s’étend à travers l’ouverture de l’anneau péri-oculaire (15).
