Beginning of June Eaglet Eye announced DirectConnect™, a new key feature embedded in the Eye Surface Profiler (ESP) software 5.0. DirectConnect allows the ESP to connect directly to a custom lab’s fitting software, dramatically increasing the speed and accuracy of empirical fitting of speciality lenses. At launch DirectConnect includes BostonSight (www.bostonsight.org) and Blanchard Labs (www.blanchardlab.com) with more labs to follow. Now, with the push of a button, the ESP instantly sends all pertinent information to BostonSight’s FitConnect® or Blanchard’s Onefit MED fitting tools. In that way, one can more easily and quickly fit a speciality contact lens, even in the most complex cases. ESP software 5.0 was distributed to all ESP owners worldwide at no charge. DirectConnect (and all features in 5.0) will be included, at no additional charge, on any ESPs purchased going forward.
“Blanchard is pleased to be working with Eaglet Eye to offer our customers the DirectConnect option for seamless design and ordering of the Onefit™ MED family scleral lenses with their Eye Surface Profiler” said Jean Blanchard, President of Blanchard Contact Lenses. “Onefit™ MED and Onefit™ MED + scleral lenses already offer highly intuitive online fitting tools that give practitioners complete control over the design and fit for a fully customizable lens and ease of fitting. Eaglet’s DirectConnect will truly provide a direct connection from their ESP to the Blanchard fitting tool, furthering the control and convenience that practitioners have!”
“We are thrilled to integrate BostonSight FitConnect with the Eaglet ESP to provide practitioners with an easy, streamlined process for ordering BostonSight SCLERALIG, an image-guided scleral lens design solution,” said Sara Yost, President and CEO of BostonSight. “BostonSight SCLERALIG is the latest product offering from BostonSight to help practitioners achieve long-term comfort and optimal vision for their patients, and ultimately elevate the standard of care in the speciality lens industry”.
Arnoud Snepvangers, CEO of Eaglet Eye summarized by stating “We appreciate the cooperation of BostonSight and Blanchard in the development of DirectConnect. This constitutes an important step in empirical fitting and will improve the fitting process for the practitioner and ultimately the quality of the lens fit for the patient. We look forward to adding more labs to DirectConnect soon”.
