Visual acuity depends on the functions of RETINA, neuronal transmission, and the interpretative ability of the brain. Normal visual acuity is expressed as 20/20 indicating that one can see at 20 feet what should normally be seen at that distance. Visual acuity can also be influenced by brightness, color, and contrast.
Exclusive legal rights or privileges applied to inventions, plants, etc.
A class of cell surface receptors recognized by its pharmacological profile. Sigma receptors were originally considered to be opioid receptors because they bind certain synthetic opioids. However they also interact with a variety of other psychoactive drugs, and their endogenous ligand is not known (although they can react to certain endogenous steroids). Sigma receptors are found in the immune, endocrine, and nervous systems, and in some peripheral tissues.

A large, uniquely crafted microscope suspends from the ceiling of the high tech eye surgery suite at Cornell University. The veterinary ophthalmologist views the widely magnified diseased eye of his patient staring into binoculars. A few feet below he utilizes a deft touch to guide instruments that accomplish the miraculous task of restoring sight to a dog whose world had turned dark. Dr. Eric Ledbetter places a fine incision in the eye to allow ultrasound instruments to gently jiggle and then detach the cloudy cataract tissue before sucking it out through the same incision. He then squeezes a soft, rather fluid artificial intraocular lens into the space formerly occupied by the old lens. We inject the artificial lens and the capsule holds it in place. The artificial lens restores their vision to what it was before, said Ledbetter ...
When a cataract progresses to the point that it affects a persons ability to do normal everyday tasks, surgery may be needed. Cataract surgery involves removing the lens of the eye and replacing it with an artificial lens. The artificial lens requires no care and significantly improves vision. Cataract surgeries are typically out-patient procedures and allow the patient to return home that same day. If surgery is recommended Dr. Ruan can recommend highly skilled and qualified surgeons in the area and will provide follow-up care throughout the process to make sure there are absolutely no complications. ...
In laser cataract surgery, the lens inside your eye that has become cloudy is removed and replaced with an artificial lens to restore clear vision. The result …
Cataract surgery is a technique used all over the world, with more than 15milion surgeries per year. The surgeon removes the opaque lens of the eye and replaces it transplanting an artificial lens. After the implant of the new photosensitive lens, patients must wear special glasses with UV filter that protect the eye for the first weeks after surgery, until the lens is customized.. Two weeks after surgery, the ophthalmologist measures vision, locates possible defects such as myopia, astigmatism or hypermetropia and consequently shapes the lens with light so that it adapts itself perfecty to the needs of the single patient. When implanted and personalized, the lens keeps on forever without stripping or substitutions. The result is an improvement in vision quality, with the possibility to see well and perform daily activities without wearing glasses. Although the advanced technology used is more expensive compared to the other lenses, this surgery, at Hospital San Giuseppe, will be offered to ...
The only effective way of treating loss of vision is through surgery. Cataract surgery is very common. During the surgery the clouded lens are removed. The lens is what makes it possible for a person to focus on an object. When it is removed it can be replaced with an artificial lens which is called an IOL. At times this may not be used and glasses or lenses will make up for the lens that has been removed. Surgery may not be needed and it could be delayed for many months. Theres a significant
Topography & Autorefraction are done at the same time. Topography is a topographical map of your cornea. You may have this done if you have corneal trouble such as Keratoconus or if you have cataracts. Autorefraction provides an objective measurement of your refractive error (the strength glasses you wear). It is particularly important to know your refraction prior and after cataract surgery to calculate the most suitable artificial lens. Currently Medicare does not offer a refund for this vital test.. ...
She then looked in his eye and told me that she thought he had a cataract. This would require surgery to remove the lens of his eye, which could then be replaced with an artificial lens and that he would get his vision back. She gave me a referral to a paediatric ophthalmologist. I went home and rang my husband (who was away travelling for work) and burst into tears, telling him that Adam was blind and would require surgery on his eye. After I had calmed down a little bit, done some Googling, I told a few friends, and I remember saying at least its not cancer. As traumatic as him having a cataract would have been, I wish that is all it was ...
A cataract is a clouding of the lens in your eye. It can affect one or both eyes. Cataracts are treated by surgery, where the cloudy lens is removed and replaced by a clear artificial lens.
The 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show highlighted the strong interest in smart materials, and the industry believes that this market will hit $1.2 billion in 2014. Although the commercial sector s interest in these types of materials is relatively new, animals have been evolving some of the most advanced materials for millions of years in order to develop very effective features and adaptations. Examples include dolphin skin s anti-drag properties, the octopus camouflage properties, blood clots, and scar formation, to name a few.. APL researchers have designed hydrogel materials based on features exemplified by animals that can undergo large property changes in response to specific aqueous environments. For example, circulatory materials mimic octopus skin through dynamic self-assembly triggered by chemical, thermal, and mechanical stimuli. Hydrogels expand and contract in response to temperature, light, salt, humidity, and pH. Therefore, exposing them to hot or cold water, brightness ...

An on-chip calibration system comprises a transmitter, a receiver, a phase and amplitude determination element configured to determine amplitude and phase characteristics of an output signal generated
The use of one or more open loop dc centrifugal fans in a housing having this geometrical configuration provides an efficient and versatile method of cooling the units and power supply. The speed of an open loop centrifugal brushless dc fan (distinct from the fan described in EP 320 720) varies with back pressure and because the fans are located adjacent to the receiving means, as the impedance presented by the unit or units in the receiving means decreases, then so does the back pressure. This results in a decrease in fan speed and hence of fan noise. Apparatus with this type of housing and cooling arrangement would find use in a variety of different environments. In one configuration all the units are of the same type, for example magnetic disk drives. If one set of units is replaced with a second set having lower air flow impedance the overall air flow through the housing increases while the speed and noise of the fans automatically decreases. This would be especially useful in the case where ...

For position control, Boadicea uses a proportional-integral (P-I) control law. The advantage of an integrator is that it provides high gain at low frequencies and attenuates higher frequency noise. The biggest disadvantage the P-I control law is integral windup. Also, the servo response is slow because the valve does not open until after an error is established. To solve these shortcomings, Boadicea uses a feed-forward control law for a short time after a change in goal position. When the goal position changes, the P-I feedback controller is disabled, and the feed-forward controller operates open loop while the leg is moving. The feed-forward controller provides several advantages. First, because the integrator is disabled during the motion, it does not build up a large error. Second, the response time of the system is improved because the valve opens full bore without waiting for an error to accumulate. A third benefit is that the feedback controller only operates on smaller errors, so the ...

Its easier to bleed your skull through a circuit board than people would like to imagine.. The human body, when viewed from the wrong direction, is nothing more that a patchwork stitching of viscera concepts associated into bloodied archetypes - body, mind, soul, guts. Guts are not one with the body; contrary to popular belief, theyre a teratoma placed on us by avenging angels who find the way we ooze through our membranes to be the most hilarious shit in the known cosmos. We process food, gel the guck in our sub-compartments, push it out through disposal chutes in the automatic behaviors were taught since birth. Unlike those who revolt against their forms, those transhumanists, Im well used to these behaviors, so switching my systems to a different model is no bother for me..

Purpose : To establish the prevalence and risk factors for intravitreal dexamethasone implant migration into the anterior chamber in eyes with macular edema and management options.. Methods : This was a multicenter, retrospective, observational study chart review of data collected from patients with macular edema treated with one or more injections of dexamethasone implants 0.7 mg at the vitreoretinal diseases units of 11 Latin American centers. The data collected from the patient charts included age, gender, etiology of the macular edema, history of cataract surgery or vitrectomy, intraocular lens status, number of implants injected, and the complications of the implant migration into the anterior chamber.. Results : Seven hundred sixty-one patients were included, and 1,071 intravitreal injections of the dexamethasone implant were administered. The prevalence of migration in these patients, considering the number of injections, was 1.3%. A total of 293 charts had incomplete data and were ...
A-scan ultrasound biometry, commonly referred to as an A-scan (short for Amplitude scan), is routine type of diagnostic test used in optometry or ophthalmology. The A-scan provides data on the length of the eye, which is a major determinant in common sight disorders. The most common use of the A-scan is to determine eye length for calculation of intraocular lens power. Briefly, the total refractive power of the emmetropic eye is approximately 60. Of this power, the cornea provides roughly 40 diopters, and the crystalline lens 20 diopters. When a cataract is removed, the lens is replaced by an artificial lens implant. By measuring both the length of the eye (A-scan) and the power of the cornea (keratometry), a simple formula can be used to calculate the power of the intraocular lens needed. There are several different formulas that can be used depending on the actual characteristics of the eye. All the information here is not valid for medical purposes. The other major use of the A-scan is to ...
Aphakia is the absence of the lens of the eye, due to surgical removal, a perforating wound or ulcer, or congenital anomaly. It causes a loss of accommodation, far sightedness (hyperopia), and a deep anterior chamber. Complications include detachment of the vitreous or retina, and glaucoma. Babies are rarely born with aphakia. Occurrence most often results from surgery to remove congenital cataract (clouding of the eyes lens, which can block light from entering the eye and focusing clearly). Congenital cataracts usually develop as a result of infection of the fetus or genetic reasons. It is often difficult to identify the exact cause of these cataracts, especially if only one eye is affected. People with aphakia have relatively small pupils and their pupils dilate to a lesser degree. Without the focusing power of the lens, the eye becomes very farsighted. This can be corrected by wearing glasses, contact lenses, or by implant of an artificial lens. Artificial lenses are described as ...
A recently completed Harris Interactive survey found an extraordinary lack of understanding of the mid- life vision condition called presbyopia. However, it also found that the vast majority of patients who underwent implantation of artificial lenses to correct the condition were overwhelmingly satisfied.. Presbyopia is a common eye condition, typically beginning around age 45, in which the natural lens of the eye becomes firmer and resists changing focus from far to near, making everyday tasks such as reading difficult.. The survey was conducted for the American Society of Cataract and Refractive Surgery Foundation (ASCRS) to gather a better understanding of peoples attitudes toward/knowledge of presbyopia and the available treatment options to correct this problem. The telephone survey polled 500 adults, aged 45+ from the general population, and 250 patients who had presbyopia- correcting artificial lenses implanted in their eyes.. Survey results showed that most adults in both sample ...
Youll see a lot on our coverage of the Curiosity landing about Open Loop Recording, something which was hinted at in a previous post about the difference between signal and data.. OLR refers to the type of recording that will be made by Mars Express as Curiosity descends towards Mars, and in parallel by ESAs New Norcia station here on Earth.. In open loop recording, we dont try to decode the bits and bytes being sent by the descending lander but instead try and listen to as much of the radio spectrum as we can, hopefully detecting the tone of the landers transmissions within this spectrum. Think of it like listening to a crowd of people - you can either focus on the words one person is saying, or listen to the whole crowd to get a full picture of whats going on; thats what well do with open loop recording.. On Mars Express well use our UHF Melacom radio to listen in on the UHF part of the spectrum - usually used on Earth for radio and television transmissions; its also used at Mars ...

The ideal amplifier An ideal amplifier will pass the input signal through to the output undistorted but enlarged (gain set by user), with no delay. It will not be affected by the output impedance of the source (sensor). In addition the ideal amplifier will be able to drive any load: supply any current. No real amplifier is ideal, but an op amp can come close, at least with regard to gain at low frequency. The typical IC op amp has an open loop gain of 10^6 and a low frequency input impedance of about 10^12 ohms. Well see shortly how such high open loop gain is harnessed to create user-desired gains. Nonlinear gain: Consider log amplifiers and anti-log amplifiers: for enhancing or minimizing waveform spikes. Filtering by amplitude. In Simulink: the Deadzone operator.

This malpositioned lens needs to be surgically corrected since leaving a decentered lens, fixed dilated pupil, and eroding sutures is quite intolerable.. The IOL can be either replaced or repositioned and fixated to the adjacent structures. There seems to be no more capsular support (Figure 2). The lenses used 15 years ago were usually 13.0 mm and longer (since in 70% at least 1 loop was out of the bag), and still it was not enough for a stable fixation. Therefore, sulcus fixation alone is out of question.. Anterior chamber IOL is a reasonable option, especially the Artisan lens. However, pupilloplasty needs to be done first to ensure stable fixation and avoid diplopia.. My preference is to reposition and refixate the same IOL with minimal surgical intervention. This eye had a suprachoroidal hemorrhage in the past, probably as a result of a prolonged hypotony during the scleral fixation procedure. It is, therefore, at high risk to develop a second event if the eye is opened again. A closed ...
An all digital controlled current driver is used for each pulsed electromagnet (e.g., gradient coils) in a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) system. Such an all digital current controller may be advantageously employed in either closed loop or open loop gradient coil control circuits. The elimination of analog components decreases cost, increases operating efficiency and improves operating characteristics of the MRI system.
This paper demonstrates how the Poly Harmonic Distortion (PHD) modelling framework is effective in its ability to interpolate or extrapolate non-linear measured data and thereby improve the quality and speed of measurement systems. Fundamental interpolation was verified and demonstrated using a 7-coefficient model extracted from a sparse set of fundamental impedances (19 points). It was shown that a relatively low order polynomial was required to capture the second harmonic space. Interpolation accuracy was however increased by including more coefficients. Second harmonic extrapolation was carried out on measured data and shown to be accurate to an average confidence of 99% when 6 model coefficients were extracted on a 0.7 reflection coefficient circle and then used to predict data on a 1.0 reflection coefficient circle. Measurements were carried out using an open loop active load-pull system operating at a fundamental frequency of 9GHz, on a 0.5W 10×75μm GaAs PHEMT device.. ...

Purpose : To compare clinical outcomes and find out proper formula of two 1-piece hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lens(IOLs) insertion of different properties in primary angle closure glaucoma patients. Methods : Total 66 eyes of 55 primary angle closure glaucoma patients had undergone phacoemulsification with posterior chamber(PC) IOL implantation operated by the one surgeon from 2013 to 2016 were included. Postoperative best corrected visual acuity(BCVA), intraocular pressure(IOP), spherical equivalent(SE), and effective lens position(ELP) during 6 months after insertion of two 1-piece hydrophobic acrylic IOLs of different physical properties(Envista MX60, Tecnis ZCB00) were obtained for statistical analysis. Results : 28 eyes in the Envista group and 34 eyes in the Tecnis group were included. Postoperative BCVA and IOP were significantly different after 6 months but no significant differences between two IOL groups(p=0.058). In the Envista group, SE changes were smaller than those of the ...
Results Data collection ran from June 1998 to November 2013, and 866 eyes of 786 patients were included. The mean (SD) age was 70.7 (12.4) years with 62% women. Low levels of perioperative and postoperative complications were noted, and the visual outcomes at 2 weeks in this audit were significantly better than those of the CND, with 75.4% achieving a best-corrected vision of ≥6/6 and 87.3% ≥6/12, improving to 95.8% and 100%, respectively, for best-case analysis (p,0.001 for all comparisons). 99% achieved the same or a better postoperative visual acuity than preoperatively compared with 95% in the CND (p,0.001) and none lost two lines of Snellen acuity (versus 1.24%; p,0.001). Patients receiving one of the two designs of square-edged hydrophobic acrylic intraocular lenses used in this audit did not require later YAG laser treatment compared with 2.72% of those who had a polymethylmethacrylate intraocular lens (p,0.02). Biometry accuracy was within ±1.0 D of the predicted refraction in ...
0068]In accordance with one embodiment of the disclosure described herein, TCP coatings can be prepared on a commercially pure Ti (cp-Ti) substrate using LENS®, a laser engineered net shaping and rapid prototyping (RP) process. TCP can be used as a representative material from the calcium phosphate family of bioceramics for which 45-150 micron size powders, desirable for LENS® processing, can be readily available. However, this process can be easily extended to other calcium phosphate, calcium silicate and calcium sulfate-based materials. Laser beams, owing to their high coherence and directionality, have the ability to locally melt the surface of a metal substrate. A schematic representation of the LENS® processing device 100 is shown in FIG. 5. The device can include a Nd:YAG (neodymium-doped yttrium aluminum garnet) laser that can have laser power 102 focused onto a metal substrate 104 to create a molten metal pool on the substrate surface 106. The laser beam 102 can be focused on the ...
In accordance with the present invention, a multifocal intraocular lens provides greater or lesser refraction in relation to the position of the head and eyes of a user. A multifocal intraocular lens body for insertion into a fluid-filled enucleated natural lens capsule of an eye is provided wherein the lens body encompasses the optical axis of the eye and provides different greater or lesser refraction depending upon the position of the eye.

A hybrid haptic feedback system in which a host computer and haptic feedback device share processing loads to various degrees in the output of haptic sensations, and features for efficient output of haptic sensations in such a system. A haptic feedback interface device in communication with a host computer includes a device microcontroller outputting force values to the actuator to control output forces. In various embodiments, the microcontroller can determine force values for one type of force effect while receiving force values computed by the host computer for a different type of force effect. For example, the microcontroller can determine closed loop effect values and receive computed open loop effect values from the host; or the microcontroller can determine high frequency open loop effect values and receive low frequency open loop effect values from the host. Various features allow the host to efficiently stream computed force values to the device.
Much of the new research into cataracts has to do with the technology that is emerging to help treat cataracts surgically. The ability to customize the type of lens that I insert into the eye provides patients with more options than in years past. We now have lenses that can correct both near and distance vision at the same time, as well as lenses that correct astigmatism. The entire process of removing a cataract is very sophisticated now. The deteriorated lens is broken up into tiny fragments using a method called phacoemulsification and removed from the eye, creating space for a new, artificial lens called an intraocular lens (IOL). An IOL is generally made out of plastic, and it is folded up like a burrito. Using the incision that I used to remove the old lens, I insert the folded IOL into the eye and it opens up in that space. Ten years ago, there were few options for IOLs and we only had single distance lenses. Now, there are multifocal IOLs, which act like no-line bifocal glasses and ...
The prospect of cataract surgery can be quite daunting. It may be an extremely common and simple procedure, but it is surgery nonetheless and any surgery can be frightening. The first step in alleviating your fears is talking to your doctor. He or she will discuss with you how the procedure is done so some of the fear of the unknown diminishes.. Many people think that cataract is similar to LASIK surgery. They may both be quick, outpatient procedures, but the techniques used are different. At your initial consultation for cataract surgery in Houston, your ophthalmologist will explain to you what will be done. Contrary to popular beliefs, a laser is not used to remove the cataracts. And what most people do not know is that in order to remove the infected lens, the entire lens must be removed. In order to do this, ultrasound waves are used to break up the lens and then the pieces of the lens are suctioned from the eye. Ones the entire infected lens has been removed, an intraocular artificial lens ...

MODEL RELEASED. Cataract surgery. Image 4 of 4. Close-up of a surgeons hands suturing (stitching) a patients eye after the insertion of an artificial lens to treat a cataract. A cataract is a loss of transparency of the lens of the eye. It is extremely common in old age, and is considered to be part of the ageing process. It causes a gradual loss of visual acuity (sharpness) and increasing short-sightedness. For a sequence showing the complete procedure, see images M570/133-136. - Stock Image M570/0136

Cataracts occur when the lens inside your eye becomes increasingly opaque resulting in misty or foggy vision.. The cause of cataract is age; however, they can be worsened by steroid use, diabetes and sunlight.. Someone with early stages of cataracts may notice a film in their vision. Often, things that used to be black and white now look grey and colours are perceived as dull. In early stage cataracts, new spectacles may improve vision but as the cataract worsens, spectacles often will not provide significant improvement. You may not be aware of cataracts in your vision because changes can be gradual. As cataracts become more advanced, vision becomes foggy, less detail is seen, reading can be slower, television isnt perfectly clear and driving becomes difficult when driving into the sun. At this stage, new spectacles will not restore normal vision and surgery is required.. Corrective surgery removes the cataract (the cloudy lens) and an artificial lens (intra ocular lens) is put into ...
Refractive lens exchange (RLE) is a surgical procedure where the patients own crystalline lens is removed and replaced with an artificial lens to achieve less dependence from glasses or contact lenses. The surgery is the same to that performed for cataract removal. Once RLE is performed the patient will no longer need to worry about cataract surgery in the future.. ...
In the process of eliminating cataracts, refractive lensectomy nowadays can also correct visual defects such as myopia, hyperopia, astigmatism, and even presbyopia. As well as eliminating the problem of clouded vision, artificial lenses allow patients to discard corrective eyewear. With refractive lensectomy it is possible to correct high refractive defects and to restore vision almost immediately. Cataracts may also be removed in patients affected by high myopia, for whom this problem occurs relatively early in life (between 50 and 60). Multifocal intra-ocular lenses (IOL) may be used to correct a range of visual defects (for example myopia and presbyopia) in a single operation, thereby ensuring optimal 360° vision both close up and at a distance.. Correcting acute visual ...
Refractive lens exchange surgery can correct both myopia, hyperopia and astigmatism whilst preventing or removing cataracts in one simple, permanent lens replacement procedure.. Ideal for the over 50s, the refractive lens exchange procedure permanently replaces the natural lens of the eye with a multifocal artificial lens. The aim of the procedure is to significantly reduce and in many cases eliminate the need for bifocal, multifocal or reading glasses.. Learn more about Refractive Lens Exchange. ...
As a part of Göteborg Energis work towards a smarter electric grid, the company has chosen to investigate the possibilities of automation in their middle voltage grid. In Europe, there are example cases where these technologies already are installed which many articles on the CIRED conference 2011 proved. Netcontrol Oy in Finland has, together with Tekla, created an automated SCADA system that Vattenfall in Finland today uses. The grid mainly consists of 10 kV open loop fed city grid and this automation is mainly designed for this type of grid. The intention of the automation is to when a fault occurs, the automation disconnects the faulted cable in the loop and then reconnects, this in as little time as possible in order to not make customers suffer.There are several different theories about how automation can be implemented, the two main principles are local automation and centralized automation. The local automation is implemented at station level with fault detectors that communicate with ...
Urea selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is a key technology for heavy-duty diesel engines to meet the increasingly stringent nitric oxides (NOx) emission limits of regulations. The urea water solution injection control is critical for urea SCR systems to achieve high NOx conversion efficiency while keeping the ammonia (NH3) slip at a required level. In general, an open loop control strategy is sufficient for SCR systems to satisfy Euro IV and Euro V NOx emission limits. However, for Euro VI emission regulation, advanced control strategy is essential for SCR systems due to its more tightened NOx emission limit and more severe test procedure compared to Euro IV and Euro V. This work proposed an approach to achieve model based closed loop control for SCR systems to meet the Euro VI NOx emission limits. A chemical kinetic model of the SCR catalyst was established and validated to estimate the ammonia storage in the SCR catalyst ...
