Coatings For Medical Optical Imaging

We design and manufacture coatings on many of the optics

and in optomechanical assemblies used in the medical & biomedical field. AccuCoat work can be found in the surgical suite creating ideal lighting sources, in imaging diagnostics, as well as ophthalmic monitoring and other biomedical platforms.

Many of our coatings, custom-designed and manufactured or standard filters and mirrors, are used specifically to enhance spectral performance in detection and imaging.

We are grateful to play an important role in cutting-edge technologies and research that allow healthier, longer lives.

Medical Applications With Our Optics

Opthalmology • Head Mounted Optics • Micro Lenses & Arrays • Sensors • Cameras • Endoscopes • Laparoscopes • Arthroscopes • Disposables • Medical Imaging • Dental Imaging • Molecular Imaging • Illumination • Blood Analyzers • Micro Displays • Video Eyewear


Glass Beamsplitter AR - Medical Optics

A polarizing, two beamsplitter system, using different wavelengths, and requiring double AR coatings on glass to treat eye disease was designed and manufactured for a customer with tight tolerances for this in-office ophthalmic system.

Laser surgery is performed using these prisms as part of the assembly to guide and control the laser while treating glaucoma, diabetic retinopathy, and other retinal diseases.

Plastic Optics for Medical Use

We coated a unique set of four optic elements for an assembly, installed within an automated colonoscopy product to work in conjunction with a camera. The disposable plastic optics were  0.5” diameter and included mirrors. All optics received AR coatings. Critical masking distribution and uniformity of coating were key for a successful project, as the optics were used in a 360-degree ring for the most visibility while imaging the patient.

Several iterations were needed as the overall project parameters shifted during development.
