EyeBrid Silicone fitting protocol

Practitioner

Fitting EyeBrid Silicone is easy! Just stick to the rules.

It is important to keep in mind that the lens should never feel incomfortable at insertion. If the patient experiences even a little bit of discomfort, remove the lens, clean it and insert again.

 

fit

Regular corneas

Fit with

EyeBrid Silicone 10

Fitting rule

BC = K
Power = Spectacle refraction + vertex distance

Irregular corneas

Fit with

EyeBrid Silicone

Fitting rule

BC = mean K + 0.2 (or BC trial EyeBrid/RGP lens)
Power = P trial lens + over refraction

 

evaluate

1. Control visual acquity

2. Do a slit lamp exam and evaluate the lens as a soft lens

The lens has to be well centered and should move as a soft lens

 

3. Remove the lens after several hours of wear and check corneal integrity

If no local staining ... leave the patient with the lenses

 

prescribe

Regular corneas

Prescribe

EyeBrid Silicone 10
BC / P

An exemple

Keratometry: 7.45 @ 160° x 7,26
Spectacle refraction: -8.25(-1.50)160°

Prescribe

EyeBrid Silicone 10: 7.45 / -7.50

Irregular corneas

Prescribe

EyeBrid Silicone
BC / P

An exemple

Keratometry: 6.80 @ 56° x 6.00
Insert EBS from trial set: 6.60 / 14.90 / -6.00
Over-refraction: -2.25 20/25

Prescribe

EyeBrid Silicone: 6.60 / -8.25

 

change ... in case observations are non-satisfactory

If centration and/or mobility are insatisfactory, change the skirt

Skirt too steep? Flatten the skirt by J +0.5
Skirt too flat? Steepen the skirt by J -0.5

If staining, verify the fluorescein pattern at removal and change BC

Staining in the centre? The lens is too flat. Steepen BC by -0.10 and add -0.50 d
Staining at the junction area? The lens is too steep. Flatten BC by +0.10 and add +0.50 d


 


Too flat


Optimal BC


Too steep

 

 

An exemple
Keratometry: 7.45 @ 160° x 7,26
Spectacle refraction: -8.25(-1.50)160°

Lens prescribed
EyeBrid Silicone 10: 7.45 / -7.50

Observations
Decentered lens
No corneal staining

Changes:
Skirt steepened by - 0.5
No change of BC

Prescribe
EyeBrid Silicone 10: 7.45 / -7.50 / - 0.5

 

iAdapt fitting software

iAdapt is EyeBrid's free proprietary fitting software. iAdapt guides you all the way along the fitting process, from the first lens to be ordered up to the final prescription. iAdapt calculates the parameters of the EyeBrid lenses to be ordered, as well as the modifications to be made, based on your observations.

Different comparative schemes illustrate the possible behaviours you may observe during the fitting process. Simply enter your observations and iAdapt automatically calculates the parameters of the lens to be ordered.

Easy!
