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:
Astigmatic (Front Surface Toric)
Oblate Post Refractive Surgical
