Menicon Launches Online Disposable Soft Lens Toric Calculator
Menicon has launched a new digital tool aiming to help make the fitting of toric lenses simpler and easier. Using the new Toric Calculator, eye care professionals can input a patient’s spectacle prescription and receive a recommendation for a starting lens to use with Menicon’s toric products.
According to the company, the toric calculator is an educational and convenience tool, supporting the initial selection of Menicon Miru contact lens products alongside best practice guidance. The Calculator is intended to be used in combination with clinican’s own professional clinical judgments, which should be adapted to the wearer’s individual requirements.
The calculation includes input fields for sphere, cyl and axis, as well as a sliding scale for back vertex distance, accounting for the difference in where the spectacles sit compared to the contact lenses. Eye care professionals can then opt to see recommendations from Menicon’s product ranges.
