The German Patent and Trademark Office has accepted the invention Device and Process for the Determination of Required Corrections of the Vision Problems of the Eye as an important key to new spectacle technology and acknowledged that it merits patent protection.
Among other details, patent number DE-102007032001B4 describes the mathematical calculation of spectacle strengths on the basis of data provided by wave front measuring device i.Profiler® and the subjective spectacle requirements determination by the optometrist.
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:
Our eyes are our most important sense organ. And since each eye is as unique as a fingerprint, it requires a customised visual analysis at your optometrist.
