A clinical study has shown that CooperVision’s OptiExpert app minimises the amount of time needed during a multifocal contact lens fitting.

Conducted by the Centre for Ocular Research and Education, the study confirmed that the Clariti 1 day multifocal contact lens power recommendations determined by the app matched recommendations by eye care professionals during a fitting. This could potentially reduce the time a patient would need in the chair being fitted with a trial lens.

The OptiExpert app includes a digital version of the Efron Grading scales, multifocal and toric calculators, oxygen profiles of lenses and can store patients’ eye condition images.

Gary Orsborn, vice president, global professional and clinical affairs at CooperVision, said: ‘We’re delighted that the study findings reinforce the accuracy of our innovative OptiExpert app. It adds another dimension to how we partner with ECPs to save valuable chair time and create a better wearer experience.’
