After 18 months of fundraising with private practice optometrists, Nashville-based start-up, Eyeris is releasing Eyeris Daily, its daily disposable contact lens.The lens is “extremely comfortable, breathable and soft on the eye. When purchased with annual vision insurance beneﬁts, it is also the most affordable yearly supply of a daily lens,” according to Eyeris.
Features: The Eyeris Daily features an 8.5 base curve and a 14.3 diameter. This custom profile makes the lens un-substitutable online, Eyeris says, while noting that the lenses are available only through optometrists, who can benefit from a high profit margin when prescribing them. A custom engineered mixture of emollients, hydration agents and a cushioning agent gives patients a “wow factor” when initially inserted, Eyeris says. The softness of the Hioxiﬁlcon lens material and its hydration characteristics carry patients to the end of the day with comfort.
Eyeris Daily is only available through Eyeris’ network of “top optometrists.” Along with the lens, Eyeris offers trial lens packaging made from their own recycled contact lens molds. “The Eyeris trial lens box doubles as a functional travel case and is made from the recycled molds of all of our lenses, which is an industry ﬁrst,” says Jeff Sonsino, OD, FAAO, and co-founder of Eyeris. The colorful eye-shaped case can be used repeatedly to store lenses when traveling. The case also utilizes RFID technology in the lens parameter label for state-of-the-art inventory management. This technology helps Eyeris during distribution and fulﬁllment, but also ensures that optometrist ofﬁces do not have to worry about counting inventory for their displays. Each night the display self-counts and re-orders what the ofﬁce needs. The trial lens packaging was developed by Eyeris CEO and co-founder, Andy Barrow.

Eschenbach Optik of America is introducing the VarioLED+ Lamp Magnifier, featuring a large 132 mm (5.2 in.) aspherical lens, adjustable LED illumination and easy-to-use push button operation.
Features: The VarioLED+ Lamp Magnifier is available in two powers: 1.9x and 2.5x. It is ideal for patients who need hands-free magnification with a lens that can easily be moved around to where it is needed such as when reading, doing needlepoint or doing hobby work.
Uniform brightness is provided by a ring of 84 high-performance LEDs on the magnifier head that can be adjusted by dimming level or by segment. There are three grey buttons on the top of the lamp head that control the different functions. The power button turns the ring of LEDs on and off, the dimming button adjusts the amount of illumination by level (40 percent, 60 percent and 100 percent), and the segment button turns part of the LED ring off to provide a customized lighting zone.
The rotating lamp head has six adjustable joints and the 31.5 in (800 mm) lamp neck has two joints to ensure that the magnifier can be positioned for optimum clarity. The included table clamp allows the VarioLED+ to easily mount to any table 18 to 74 mm in thickness or there is an optional cast iron table base available separately.
