New Contact Lens Module Reduces Drop Outs and Improves First Time Fit

Las Vegas, NV, January 22, 2015 – Volk Optical announces the launch of Volk Eye Check for the contact lens market. An addition to the current Volk Eye Check device, which provides ocular measurements and aids in the diagnosis of ophthalmic abnormalities such as strabismus, The Volk Eye Check Contact Lens module is a new software application focused on assisting the contact lens practitioner to achieve a quicker fitting process and to reduce drop-out rates. By automatically providing objective and accurate measurements of key eye parameters such as iris diameter, pupil size and lid position, Volk Eye Check’s Contact Lens module will assist practitioners in quickly identifying patients that may require non-standard optics in their lenses, and also to assist in the quick and smooth fitting of progressive, RGP, and scleral lenses.

“Volk Eye Check’s Contact Lens Module provides fast, accurate and objective measurements within a small, mobile and cost-effective device. We believe that the device may revolutionise the way contact lenses are designed and fitted and open up opportunities for better fittings and greater patient satisfaction” said Yuval Yashiv, Chief Executive of IRISS Medical Technologies, Volk’s technology partner for the device.

This new addition to Volk Eye Check was launched at the annual Global Specialty Lens Symposium in Las Vegas, Nevada.
