Pleasanton, CA-Clarity Medical Systems Inc.’s compact wavefront sensor module has received a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The patent is the continuation of Clarity’s expanding HOLOS technology. It includes the attachment of the compact HOLOS wavefront sensor onto a surgical microscope or slit lamp, or the integration into a surgical microscope or slit lamp.

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

“The compact size of (the technology) will help ophthalmologists rapidly and efficiently measure their patient’s refractive state during cataract surgery, as well as provide real-time surgical guidance while preserving key surgeon ergonomics,” said Keith Mullowney, president and chief executive officer of Clarity.
