SAN RAMON, CALIF., January 18, 2023—Committed to advancing new technologies that improve how eye care practitioners (ECPs) deliver clinical care, CooperVision Specialty EyeCare today announced the launch of its pioneering digital fitting tool, Visavy™ (pronounced Vee-SAH-vee) at 2023 Global Specialty Lens Symposium (GSLS). The easy-to-use, web-based fitting software incorporates topography-guided algorithms to assist the design and selection of Paragon CRT® orthokeratology contact lenses for myopia management.
Visavy™ is an adaption of the company’s popular MyProcornea tool, which has been available in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia for other CooperVision specialty lens designs. The all-in-one platform includes integrated ordering to reduce chair time, provides ECPs with the ability to track orders in real time, and chat live with online consultants. The topography-driven approach and view simulated fluoresceine patterns promote greater precision and accuracy. In addition, professionals and staff can easily login and manage their product range anywhere, at any time.
Kelly Voltz, OD, FAAO, FSLS, Senior Manager, Professional and Clinical Affairs, CooperVision Specialty EyeCare, led Visavy™ clinical development. “As an industry partner, we are committed to discovering new ways to help ECPs streamline their processes and build even more confidence when fitting and prescribing our lenses. This goes well beyond our lenses to include digital innovation,” she said. “Visavy™ was designed with ease-of-use in mind. The platform centers on fitting accuracy and convenience, making it easier than ever before for ECPs to find the optimal fit for specialty lens patients.”
Orthokeratology Lens Fit Success Using a New Software—a poster which uncovers first fit success rates using Visavy™—will be presented on January 20 from 10 a.m. – 11 a.m. PST during the CE poster session at GSLS.
