    2. Optical system with multiple scanners for ophthalmic surgical laser

      Optical system with multiple scanners for ophthalmic surgical laser

      An ophthalmic surgical laser system includes a laser engine, to generate a laser beam, a first Z scanner, to receive the generated laser beam, and to scan a focal spot of the laser system over a first Z interval along an optical axis of the laser system an XY scanner, to receive the laser beam output by the first Z scanner, and to scan the focal spot of the laser system in a direction essentially transverse to the optical axis of the laser system, and a second Z scanner, to receive the scanned laser beam from the XY scanner, and ...

    3. Image-processor-controlled misalignment-reduction for ophthalmic systems

      Image-processor-controlled misalignment-reduction for ophthalmic systems

      An ophthalmic system is provided that includes an ophthalmic imaging device to generate an image of a portion of an imaged eye of a patient, an image processor to determine a misalignment of the imaged eye and the imaging device by processing the generated image, and to generate a control signal according to the determined misalignment, and a misalignment-reduction system to receive the control signal, and to generate a misalignment-reduction response. The misalignment-reduction system can include a fixation light system or a gantry. In some cases a locator light system may provide additional alignment information for the image processor.

    4. Image-guided docking for ophthalmic surgical systems

      Image-guided docking for ophthalmic surgical systems

      A docking method for an ophthalmic system may include the steps of aligning a docking unit of the ophthalmic system and an eye; generating an image of an internal structure of the eye by an imaging system; improving an alignment of the docking unit with the internal structure of the eye in relation to the generated image; and docking the docking unit to the eye. The generating the image step may include computing scanning data by a processor corresponding to a scanning pattern; storing the scanning data in a data buffer; transferring the scanning data by the data buffer to ...

    5. Imaging-based guidance system for ophthalmic docking using a location-orientation analysis

      Imaging-based guidance system for ophthalmic docking using a location-orientation analysis

      An imaging-guided docking system can separate the tilt and location of an imaged ophthalmic target and present them in an intuitive manner for an ophthalmic surgeon. The docking system can include an ophthalmic imaging system to image a portion of an eye of a patient, an image processor to determine a location and an orientation of the imaged portion of the eye, and a guidance system, coupled to the ophthalmic imaging system, to guide an ophthalmic docking based on the determined location and orientation. In some implementations, the imaging system images an internal eye-structure to determine its orientation and a ...

    6. Optical system for ophthalmic surgical laser

      Optical system for ophthalmic surgical laser

      A laser system for ophthalmic surgery includes a laser source, to generate a pulsed laser beam, an XY scanner, to receive the pulsed laser beam, and to output an XY-scanning beam, scanned in two directions transverse to a Z axis, a Z scanner, to receive the XY-scanning beam, and to output an XYZ-scanning beam, scanned in addition along the Z axis, the Z scanner including a first lens group to output a beam having an intermediate focal plane, and a movable lens group to receive the beam through the intermediate focal plane and to collimate the beam in a variable ...

    7. Gradient search integrated with local imaging in laser surgical systems

      Gradient search integrated with local imaging in laser surgical systems

      Techniques and systems for gradient search are provided based on sensing or measuring at selected locations of a target object without performing full-field sensing or measuring over the entire field of the target object. Search methods are provided to include determining a coordinate of a boundary of a region in relation to a loop in a proximity of a first location, determining a direction of a gradient of the coordinate corresponding to the first location, and selecting a second location based on the determined direction. A search system can be implemented to include an imaging system to determine a coordinate ...

      Finding “Big Ideas” in Ophthalmic Innovation - Venture Capitalists Will Back Potential “Game Changers”
      ...ors. As an example, Dr. Kliman notes that one major reason that InterWest provided significant backing to the LenSx femto-phaco initiative (since purchased by Alcon) was because InterWest had been involved with the same ...

    9. Macular morphology assessed by optical coherence tomography image segmentation after femtosecond laser–assisted and standard cataract surgery

      Macular morphology assessed by optical coherence tomography image segmentation after femtosecond laser–assisted and standard cataract surgery

      Purpose: To evaluate and compare thickness changes in the retinal layers in the macula with optical coherence tomography (OCT) segmentation software after femtosecond laser–assisted phacoemulsification (study group) and conventional phacoemulsification (control group).Setting: Department of Ophthalmology, Semmelweis University, Budapest, Hungary.Design: Case-control study.Methods: Total retinal thickness of the macula was evaluated using Stratus OCT 4 to 8 weeks postoperatively. The OCT images were segmented using OCT retinal image analysis software. Regional thickness data in the central area, inner rings, and outer rings were obtained and absolute and relative thicknesses of the individual retinal layers in the 2 study ...
