If you’re trying to design a scleral lens around a growth like a pinguecula or a protruding glaucoma shunt, bear in mind that Blanchard Contact Lenses are now an option for these patients. 

The company announced today that its Onefit and Onefit Med scleral lenses can be made with a process the company calls “control peripheral recess,” or CPR, to create a precise and reproducible notch on a lens. Notches historically were done manually and therefore were challenging to replicate, the company says.

CPR technology is available on all Onefit lens designs (Spherical, Sym-Toric, Toric Peripheral Curve and Quadrant Specific). A user-friendly CPR Tool available at 
blanchardlab.com simplifies the design and ordering process and provides a visual representation of the lens design.
