First Migraine Lens Coating
Applying the research discoveries from University of Utah and Harvard Medical Schools, TecportVision developed the technology to create a medical device to effectively manage the treatment/prevention of photophobia in migraine patients. Multilayer element coatings create an effective notch filter that removes exposure to specific wavelengths and thus reduces both the frequency and intensity of migraines. This filter coating does not significantly distort color perception and can be used indoors or outdoors.
The filter coating can be applied not only to plastic spectacle lenses, but also to glass lenses, and potentially to other substrates such as contact lenses, light bulbs and computer monitors. It will be the most effective nonpharmaceutical method of reducing the severity and frequency of migraines.
First Cold Plasma Thin Film Deposition System
Tecport Optics achieved the capability to filter specific wavelength(s) or notch filters through the invention of the Polaris system. This system provides the capability to deposit a multilayer of thin films on polymers/plastic objects without damage to the (substrate) plastic itself. In order to be an effective treatment, this process is critical as medical devices, protective covers, and eyeglass lens are all polymer based. Polaris is a revolutionary breakthrough as it will now enable the use of polymers as a substrate versus glass in many applications. Tecport is the only company that has achieved this capability. Provisional patents have been filed in the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
The Polaris system can apply as many as an estimated 43 layers of elements. While the thickness is less than a fraction of the thickness of a human hair. In a vacuum chamber filled with positive ions, coatings are achieved by compacting molecules and removing virtually all spaces. Resulting filters are dense and provide a hardened coating that make lens and other polymers more durable and stronger. This technology will give Tecport a technical and sustainable advantage and leadership in the industry.
The patent (pending) process will provide opportunities in the smart phones and the lucrative flat-panel display markets.
