Agreement Enables Innovative Scleral Lens Technology to Scale Up, Includes 360-Degree Customer Support
Keeping with its longstanding commitment to provide eye care practitioners (ECPs) with the most robust portfolio of specialty contact lens products and services, CooperVision Specialty EyeCare has become the exclusive provider of a pioneering scleral lens design system. Using a novel algorithm, ScanFitPRO software* precisely maps topographical data from patients’ eyes to create custom lens designs unique to their ocular profiles, without diagnostic lens fitting or physical impressions.
“We’re known for providing ECPs with inventive tools and resources they need to comfortably and confidently fit our lenses. The ScanFitPRO system enhances scleral design accuracy from the start, streamlining the fitting process,” said Dr. Juan Carlos Aragón, President, CooperVision Specialty EyeCare. “Our leading market presence offers the scale needed for SynergEyes ScanFitPRO to reach its potential. The addition of this technology to our portfolio will further strengthen our partnerships with the specialty eye care community, helping amplify their already significant impact on patients’ lives.”
Moving forward, all SynergEyes ScanFitPRO orders and customer support will be managed by CooperVision Specialty EyeCare. The technology was developed by EyePrint Prosthetics, which continues to operate as an independent company.
The ScanFitPRO design software is compatible with Oculus Pentacam’s Corneal Scleral Profile (CSP) Report, Oculus AXL Wave, and the Eaglet Eye’s Surface Profiler (ESP). Both scanning technologies capture the patients’ eye in a straight-ahead gaze, maximizing lens accuracy.
CooperVision Specialty EyeCare develops, manufactures, and provides access to an unmatched portfolio of industry-leading soft custom and rigid gas permeable lens designs, including orthokeratology and scleral lenses to address segments such as myopia management, irregular cornea management, and presbyopia management. Its steady voice, ongoing research and innovative products and services play a leading role in expanding eye care worldwide. The group’s brands include Blanchard, GP Specialists, Paragon, Procornea, Soflex, EnsEyes, No7 Contact Lenses, and SynergEyes.
