Visionary Optics’ New Scleral Lens is the Result of a Rich Set of Profilometry data.
Visionary Optics, a leading expert in scleral lens design, announced the launch of Europa Tangent, a scleral lens that combines an optimized, customizable design with a streamlined fitting process. This enhanced lens design is based on clinical experience and analysis of over 10,000 fittings driven by profilometry data and Visionary Optics’ scleral shape classification expertise.
The Europa Tangent design offers a streamlined, 3-zone step-system that ensures advanced customization options remain available to eye care providers (ECPs) and their patients. The design has one landing zone curve, engineered to follow the natural slope of the scleral surface. This enhanced form offers a smoother, softer transition to the landing zone, patterned after Visionary Optics’ free-form lens design. A softer landing can eliminate the compression and blanching commonly observed during the fitting process.
“We were fortunate to work with the Europa Tangent lens before its release. The lens design excels in both fit and comfort. This design is more predictable with settling and allows me to come to a final fit more quickly. By lowering our remake percentage, improving compression and impingement issues, and improving patient comfort, the Europa Tangent has become the number one lens used in my practice,” said Randy Charrier, OD, FAAO, Family Vision Solutions, Texas.
With Europa Tangent and Visionary Optics’ proven contour curve technology, ECPs can make precise, independent adjustments to parameters in the central, limbal, and landing zones without affecting other fitting characteristics. This has significantly simplified the process by focusing on specific, easy-to-adjust parameters that give ECPs control over their patients’ scleral lens fits, and ultimately, their quality of life.
The lens is ideally positioned to make free-form lens design benefits available to both new scleral lens fitters who are seeking a streamlined, easy-to-understand fitting process, as well as current Visionary Optics fitters who are well acquainted with the benefits of a lens patterned after a free-form design. “Our new Europa Tangent was designed with new and seasoned fitters in mind,” said Donald Sanders, MD, PhD, president, and CEO of Visionary Optics. “This simplified design offers a streamlined fitting method, while still ensuring that any advanced customization options remain available.”
The Europa Tangent is a new addition to the established Europa scleral family of lenses, which is among the most trusted products in scleral lens design, with an overall success rate of 94%. Visionary Optics is the only company that is focused exclusively on scleral lens fitting, design, and manufacturing and is a leader in the industry, with over 20 years of experience.
