A resource has been created to offer convenience and to enable practitioners to quickly design its SpecialEyes custom soft contact lenses for patients with an average corneal diameter or horizontal visible iris diameter (HVID) of 11.6 to 12.0mm. 

If the patient’s HVID is larger or smaller than average, then the SpecialEyes Arc Length Calculator calculates the correct base curve and diameter choice combination. 

The new SpecialEyes Multifocal Simulator (pictured) uses pupil size to design the multifocal lens optics by calculating centre and peripheral zones for optimal distance, intermediate, and near vision. 

Six Six Contact managing director, Graham Avery, explained: “SpecialEyes are particularly good for multifocal and multifocal-toric patients where pupil size has a critical impact on the performance of multifocal contact lenses.” 

He added: “As many practitioners and patients have discovered, off-the-shelf contact lenses can’t fit everyone perfectly. And when they don’t, users often experience poor visual performance and discomfort, leading to contact lens dropout. 

“With SpecialEyes’ vast parameter range, practitioners have the ability to create exactly the right fit for their patients’ needs.” 

Mr Avery concluded: “SpecialEyes lenses are custom fit according to sagittal height of the cornea because no two eyes are the same.” 

SpecialEyes contact lenses are prescribed as a quarterly replacement lens and are offered by the company with a 100% warranty.
