EyePrint Prosthetics has announced the development of its new scleral lens fitting software, ScanFitPRO. This new technology simplifies every-day contact lens fitting by employing EyePrint Prosthetic’s scleral lens designer algorithm to automatically design a lens in 3-dimensional space, according to a company news release. The practitioner has the ability to customize the fitting of the lens, using patented Elevation Specific Technology.
ScanFitPRO utilizes the Pentacam’s Corneal Scleral Profile (CSP) for scleral mapping precision. The CSP Report is generated by 250 Scheimpflug images covering a diameter of up to 17mm. All images of the CSP scan are taken in a straight-on gaze without need for secondary gazes, preventing off-axis elevation disparities.
“The features making ScanFitPRO unique from other topography-based lens designs, is our ability to capture scleral data in straight gaze, and its ability to align optics directly with the line of sight. This creates a custom fit device with superior optical quality to meet each patient’s unique needs,” Christine W. Sindt, OD, FAAO, owner and founder of EyePrint Prosthetics, said in a company news release.
This custom software gives physicians the ability to design a device with the patient’s own scleral profile, allowing for the highest level of design accuracy and speeding up the fitting process. The topographical data received from the CSP Report is combined with an overlaid iris image to allow the physician to visualize the device on the patient’s eye. The ScanFitPRO automatically aligns the optics with the patient’s line of site, eliminating the need for guessing and multiple trial lens fittings.
“This technology ultimately enables the practitioner to also be the lens designer just seconds after seeing the eyes they’re fitting. This technology raises the bar for scleral lens fitting,” said Dr. Sindt.
