Description: HD dispensing technology for eye and face measurement, frame, contact lens try-on, order management, benefit verification and marketing support.
Features: This new generation of the SmartEyePix is being introduced as a desktop device that is easily adapted to individual practice needs. The new Measurement-Consulting-Management system, using SmartEyePix proven technology, also provides in-office patient education and communication. "This outstanding technology offers eyecare professionals a perfect complement to all of the systems out in the market," says Rudolf Suter, CEO and president of PFO. Through a unique, two-screen system, practitioners have the ability to involve patients in the entire process. This new technology offers efficiency and cost effectiveness with a "high tech-high touch" patient impression.
Availability: The system is available in three modules:
Frame Try-On / Lifestyle Feature—The patient is able to see themselves on the screen and compare up to four frames. They can then e-mail the pictures to family and friends if they want help making a choice.
Lens Consulting—The SmartEyePix can be used by the optician to educate the patient on the advantages of the different lens materials that are available, such as thickness and weight difference with a specific prescription. It also demonstrates the difference between lens designs such as progressives, single vision, office, etc.
Once the frame and lenses are chosen, SmartEyePix shows the patient the effect of antireflective, photochromic, tint or polarized lenses. It demonstrates visual and cosmetic benefits and the value to the patient's lifestyle.
Contact Lens Consulting—Customers can view themselves in colored contact lenses and see the benefit of multifocal contact lenses without actually having to try them on. Up to eight images can be viewed on the screen at one time.
Measurement—The unique facial recognition system of the SmartEyePix takes all necessary measurements for accurate fitting of the lenses, including Monocular near and distance PD, vertex distance, pantoscopic tilt, wrap angles, frame measurements A, B, ED and DBL from a single image without the need for the patient to be fitted with an awkward template.
Fulfillment Services—The SmartEyePix includes services for ordering frames, lenses, contact lenses and disposables such as eye drops and solutions in connection with a complete order management system. Orders placed through PFO's SmartEyewear program will not incur a transaction fee.
For managed vision care, SmartEyePix has a benefits verification and claim management tool that is HIPAA compliant.
This module communicates with the PMS for accounting and Patient Service features.
Description: Hemisphere adjustable prescription sunglasses and computer glasses provide instant vision correction and immediate dispensing.
Features: Hemisphere instant prescription eyewear allows dispensers to "dial, set and seal" the wearer's prescription by adjusting fluid filled lenses in each eye. Instant prescription eyewear can be customized for different activities—prescription suns for outdoor use, clear lenses for intermediate computer vision. Fluid-filled lens technology was originally developed to provide vision correction in less developed countries. In keeping with its philanthropic heritage, Adlens will donate a pair of glasses to someone in the developing world for every pair purchased. The Buy One Give One Program will be coordinated through Vision For a Nation in Rwanda.
Close Up: Hemisphere is a fluid-filled instant prescription sunglass. The refractive power of each polycarbonate lens is set by adjusting external reservoirs of optically-clear silicone fluid. Once the prescription in each eye is set, the dispenser can remove the reservoirs and seal off the fill port with color-matched tabs. Instant prescription eyewear eliminates the wait associated with dispensing traditional prescription sunwear. Hemisphere will be dispensed through eyecare professionals throughout the world.
Availability: Hemisphere covers a wide range of spherical powers from -4.50D to +3.50D. Sunglasses are available in six colors: blue, burgundy, olive, crystal, dark gray and brown with matching lens tints. Clear lenses are available in dark gray and brown frames.
