DETECTING COATINGS ON INTRAOCULAR LENS INSERTION DEVICES AND METHODS OF MANUFACTURING THE DEVICES

منذ 4 شهر 2 أسبوع

الوصف

Methods for detecting a coating on a surface of a device are provided. A method includes forming the coating on the device, the coating including a lubricious-enhancing component and a fluorescing component, illuminating the fluorescing component to cause the fluorescing component to emit a glow, and determining characteristics of the coating on the device based on the glow of the fluorescing component. In another embodiment, a method of manufacturing an IOL insertion device includes molding a cartridge of the insertion device, the cartridge having an inner surface defining a lumen for receiving an IOL, forming a coating on the inner surface of the cartridge, the coating including a lubricious-enhancing material and a fluorescing compound, energizing the fluorescing compound in the coating to cause a light emission, and measuring the light emission to determine a characteristic of the coating. In another embodiment, an IOL device includes a molded cartridge having an inner surface defining a lumen, and a coating disposed on the inner surface of the molded cartridge comprising a lubricious material and a fluorescing compound.
