Carl Zeiss Vision has secured critical patent protection for its i.Scription® eyeglass optimization technology. This optimization utilizes a significantly more extensive and fine- tuned analysis of vision problems than those used in the past and finds the higher order aberrations that were not detected by earlier systems.
The device and process for the determination of required corrections of the vision problems of the eye has been accepted by the German Patent and Trademark Office as an important key to new eyeglass technology, and its suitability for patent protection acknowledged.
Among other details, patent number DE-102007032001B4 describes the mathematical calculation of eyeglass powers on the basis of data provided by wavefront measuring device i.Profiler® and the subjective eyeglass requirements determination by the eye care professional.
Anton Kuhn, Head of Sales Central Europe of Carl Zeiss Vision GmbH, considers the decision made by the German Patent and Trademark Office an important confirmation:
“Developments on the market show us that we have landed a substantial innovation with i.Scription® that wins over both eye care professionals and those who wear glasses. For our developers, the fact that their invention is now patent protected is a major acknowledgement of their achievement.”
