Atlanta, GA—Visioneering Technologies, Inc., makers of NaturalVue® (etafilcon A) Multifocal 1 Day Contact Lenses, has introduced the NaturalVue Multifocal QuickStart Calculator, a new tool for eye care practitioners.
The NaturalVue Multifocal QuickStart Calculator is a web-based tool designed to help practitioners fit NaturalVue Multifocal 1 Day Contact Lenses. The NaturalVue Multifocal QuickStart Calculator provides the optimal starting lens powers and only requires the patient’s best corrected spectacle refraction and vertex distance. The calculator also provides powers for vision enhancements, if needed. This tool should enable practitioners to achieve more immediate success with the NaturalVue Multifocal.
Practitioners who use the new NaturalVue Multifocal Quickstart Calculator with the NaturalVue Multifocal Fitting Success Tool can expect to experience a 90-100% patient purchase rate.1 Based on data from VTI accounts, NaturalVue Multifocal has demonstrated a repurchase rate of 92%.2 This extremely high repurchase rate for a multifocal strongly indicates that patients are very satisfied with their vision, and will be coming back to their practitioner to purchase again and again.
“We have recently started using the NaturalVue Multifocal QuickStart Calculator”, says Kim Gilchrist, LDO, ABO, NCLE, Contact Lens Trainer at Marietta Eye Clinic. “The QuickStart Calculator provides the optimal starting lens powers and only requires the patient’s best corrected spectacle refraction and vertex distance. Since we began using it, it has helped us to streamline the fitting process. We have noticed an increase in fitting success and a decrease in chair time when we use it. It really takes the "guess work" out of where to start. I highly recommend utilizing the NaturalVue Multifocal QuickStart Calculator as a part of your fitting process.”
