    OrthoTool™ is the current iteration of contact lens design, modeling, and manufacturing software which has evolved over the last 25 years. The current software allows contact lens fitters to enter traditional patient information (K’s and spectacle Rx), suggests the presence of certain pathology, makes lens design suggestions, and allows the user to “point and click” a number of different lens designs and fitting techniques. 

    Once a design is selected, OrthoTool performs the optical calculations, displays the complete lens parameters and manufacturing data, displays a cross section model of the lens and a lens thickness profile, and graphs the tear film thickness across the lens diameter. 

    Have full control of your custom lens design!

    OrthoTool eliminates vertex conversion, “SAM FAP”, “RALS-LARS”, and other optical calculations, bringing standards and consistency to your contact lens designs and reduces refits and training costs. Orthotool makes sense out of detailed lens parameters and presents information in a way that is easy to visualize and lets anyone understand complex lens designs and fitting concepts.
