Blanchard Announces Notching Technology for the Onefit Family of Scleral Lenses: Control Peripheral Recess

Source: Blanchard

Blanchard Contact Lenses has unveiled their latest design option for its Onefit and Onefit MED scleral lenses. Control Peripheral Recess (CPR) is a manufacturing process that creates a precise, controlled and reproducible peripheral recess on a lens (notch), to accommodate pingueculas and any other types of growths and shunts. CPR technology is available on all Onefit lens designs (spherical, sym-toric, toric peripheral curve and quadrant specific). A user-friendly CPR Tool available at blanchardlab.com simplifies the design and ordering process and provides a visual representation of the lens design.

“We are pleased to now be able to provide an easily reproducible notching technology to meet the needs of eye care practitioners” Jean Blanchard, President of Blanchard Contact Lenses, said in a company news release. “Notches historically were done manually and therefore were challenging to replicate.  However, we are constantly evolving our manufacturing processes to allow for expanded design options and are very happy with the resulting new CPR technology and online tool, which produces perfectly notched lenses and simplifies ordering for the practitioner.”
