Based on the traditional ‘Efron Grading Scale’, the app converts this information into an easy-to-use digital tool, which is always on-hand. It allows practitioners to grade patients against 16 sets of images and covers the key anterior ocular complications of contact lens wear. The conditions are illustrated in five stages of increasing severity from 0–4, with traffic light colour banding from green (normal) to red (severe), providing a straightforward and efficient aid for the optical professional.
Available in 14 languages, OptiExpert™ enables practitioners to control what is shown to the patient so they only see the conditions and severity that is relevant to them. A visual representation of their condition also helps patients understand the importance of their ECP’s recommendations, such as upgrading to a silicone hydrogel contact lens to improve clinical signs of hypoxia or the importance of adhering to contact lens wearing schedules.
Additional benefits of the app include the ability to securely store images of the patient’s eye condition - facilitating easy comparison to other images on the scale to aid accurate grading. Practitioners are able to add their own comments following each patient evaluation, allowing a comprehensive record to be compiled of each individual’s condition and any treatment prescribed.
