Pleasanton, CA-The United States Patent and Trademark Office granted Clarity Medical Systems Inc.U.S. Patents 8454162 Optimizing Vision Correction Procedures and 8506083 Compact Wavefront Sensor Module and its Attachment.

Patent 8454162 includes the capture and display of high-accuracy continuous streaming, real-time refractive wavefront measurements during vision correction procedures, including overlaying data on a live image of the patient’s eye.

Clarity’s first product application of this unique technology will be for refractive cataract surgery with HOLOS IntraOp, an intraoperative module that attaches to any standard surgical microscope to assist the surgeon in monitoring and confirming the refractive status of the patient’s eye throughout all phases of the surgical procedure.

Patent 8506083 includes the attachment of the compact HOLOS wavefront sensor onto a surgical microscope or slit lamp or integration into a surgical microscope or slit lamp.

According to the company, HOLOS IntraOp will help surgeons rapidly and efficiently measure a patient’s refractive state during cataract surgery, as well as provide real-time surgical guidance while preserving key surgeon ergonomics.
