SpecialEyes Algorithm Added to Volk Eye Check to Support Custom Contact Lens Design

SARASOTA, Fla., September 29, 2015 – Volk Eye Check Device Integrates SpecialEyes Arc Length Calculator to Deliver Enhanced Custom Contact Lens Report With Best-Fit Analysis

SpecialEyes, LLC is pleased to announce a new partnership with Volk Optical, which has integrated SpecialEyes’ Arc Length Calculator with the Volk Eye Check device. Powered by IRISS Medical Technologies, Volk Eye Check now incorporates SpecialEyes’ sagittal-depth fitting algorithm to assist eye-care practitioners in designing and fitting custom contact lenses.

Volk Eye Check’s contact lens (CL) mode allows practitioners to easily obtain key ocular measurements for each patient and upload them to a server, where the SpecialEyes Arc Length Calculator processes the data. The calculator’s fitting algorithm then identifies potential custom contact lens designs based on the patient’s unique measurements, including HVID, pupil size, and sagittal depth. Finally, the system generates a customized contact lens report and best-fit analysis with a list of custom lens options, including SpecialEyes 54 Sphere, 54 Toric, and 54 Multifocal contact lens designs.

As a result of the collaboration between SpecialEyes, Volk Optical and IRISS Medical, eye-care practitioners can now identify the best custom lens design in seconds, fit specialty contact lenses in fewer sessions, decrease revenue loss from contact lens dropouts, and improve patient satisfaction.

“We’re proud that Volk Optical has chosen to partner with SpecialEyes and integrate our Arc Length Calculator with the Volk Eye Check device. Together, our technologies will help eye-care practitioners attain better outcomes for their patients – including hard-to-fit individuals who have previously been unsuccessful with standard lens designs,” said Michelle Walsh, Director of Sales and Marketing at SpecialEyes.
