Goleta-based TrueVision Systems has won a patent for computer eye surgery guidance that it says could open the door to new licensing revenue.
TrueVision began as maker of 3D, heads-up microscope systems for eye and brain surgeons. Instead of peering through tiny eyepieces, surgeons could view large 3D images on a projector. Those systems formed the basis of a successful partnership with Leica Microsystems, one of the biggest makers of surgical microscopes in the world.
