SAN RAMON, CALIF., October 1, 2021—CooperVision Specialty EyeCare today launched its innovative Paragon CRT® Calculator mobile application for eye care professionals (ECPs). The easy-to-understand, multifunctional app includes several features aimed at simplifying the fitting process for CRT® and CRT® Dual Axis contact lens prescribers.
Through the app, ECPs will be able to seamlessly calculate lens parameters in just a few clicks, thereby reducing chair time and allowing ECPs to serve patients more efficiently. In addition, ECPs can share the app recommendations with CooperVision Specialty EyeCare’s customer service team to streamline the ordering process.
