Blanchard Launches New Scleral Lens Design for Asian Eye - Onefit A Now Available

Blanchard Contact Lenses announced today that they have launched an exciting new scleral lens design. The Onefit A lens for the Asian eye addresses the physiological nuances of the Asian eye, embracing Blanchard’s minimalist approach to fitting scleral lenses for long-term corneal health.  Just like the existing Onefit™ Scleral Lens Platform, these lenses offer the crisp acuity of a GP lens with the hydrating comfort of a soft lens.

“Compared to the Caucasian cornea, the Asian cornea has a smaller HVID and is more prolate with a smaller palpebral fissure.  Therefore, to provide optimal limbal clearance and easier handling, we designed the Onefit A lens with a smaller diameter and an altered para central geometry” said Jean Blanchard, President of Blanchard Contact Lenses.”

Onefit A is specifically designed for the Asian cornea with a normal prolate profile, astigmatism, post grafts (prolate), moderately irregular corneas, Forme Fruste Keratoconus, and post-refractive surgical corneas. Design applications include the following:

Normal Prolate
Astigmatic (Front Surface Toric)
Toric Peripheries
Multifocal
Oblate Post Refractive Surgical
Oblate Toric
Oblate Multifocal
