Former Specialty Lens Fitting Platform Undergoes Enhancements to
Streamline Processes for Eye Care Professionals in the BeNeLux and Nordic Regions
SAN RAMON, CALIF., May 10, 2023—CooperVision Specialty EyeCare recently launched its pioneering digital fitting tool, Visavy® (pronounced Vee-SAH-vee) in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxembourg (BeNeLux), and the Nordic region. The easy-to-use, web-based fitting software enhances the company’s former MyProcornea tool by incorporating topography-guided algorithms and simulated fluoresceine patterns to assist in the design and selection of the company’s scleral, rigid gas permeable (RGP), custom soft, and orthokeratology contact lenses.
The all-in-one platform enables eye care practitioners (ECPs) to seamlessly manage lens product ranges, order and/or re-order contact lenses, track all orders in real-time, and chat with online consultants. The integrated ordering function helps ECPs to reduce chair time, while the topography-driven approach and fluorescent image simulation promotes greater precision and accuracy when customizing lenses.
“After the proven success of MyProcornea over the past few years, we wanted to enhance the digital fitting tool to better serve the eye care community by introducing new features and expanded capabilities,” said Ron Beerten, BOptom., FAAO, FBCLA, FIACLE, Head of Professional Services and Technical Director, CooperVision Specialty EyeCare, EMEA. “Through a combination of practitioners’ requests and our own research, the newly-branded “Visavy®” will further provide ECPs with the tools, resources, and support they need to enhance their specialty lens practices.”
A recent clinical study indicates a 70% fit success rate with orthokeratology contact lenses using Visavy®. Visavy® is expected to roll out in other regions throughout Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) region in 2023.
