Essilor’s m’eyeFit offers a host of capabilities beyond fitting digitally surfaced lenses.
Modern premium digitally surfaced progressive addition lenses (PALs) are produced using advanced design and manufacturing techniques. Essilor of America, Inc.’s m’eyeFit Digital Measuring System is an easy-to-use, yet high-tech, solution that’s an ideal way to not only take measurements, but also show eyewear, perform demos, and educate patients.
Perhaps the best way to think of m’eyeFit is as an addition to your dispensing ability—an electronic aid that extends your abilities and provides you support. Just like eyeglasses enhance vision and a smartphone provides wireless Internet resources, m’eyeFit augments a dispenser’s capabilities and provides support materials that garner better results. Using a hybrid-PC tablet format in measuring mode, m’eyeFit takes PAL and single vision lens fitting measurements including pupillary distances, fitting height, vertex distance, pantoscopic tilt, and wrap angle. An added bonus is that it takes all of these with the simple capture of two patient images.
Once the frame has been pre-adjusted on the patient, the m’eyeFit system takes its measurements with just two quick pictures of the patient using the tablet stabilized on a platform. The results are displayed instantly on the tablet’s screen and can be transferred from one tablet to another in your dispensary, allowing information to be shared between dispensers. In addition, measurements can be transferred and used with VisionWeb’s online ordering system or other compatible practice management systems. This is very helpful and reduces the likelihood of ordering data errors.
While the m’eyeFit system can be used to measure any brand of lenses, it’s designed specifically to incorporate the position-of-wear and other unique measurements used to fit the Essilor family of premium progressive lenses.

MAINTAINING A GOOD IMAGE
The m’eyeFit system can also display and record multiple images of patients wearing frames they may be interested in purchasing. This is a great tool for someone who has difficulty seeing their selections without their prescription. Using side-by-side comparisons, patients choose among frames they are considering. They can also email these images to friends or family for second opinions.
SALES AND EDUCATION
Not only does the m’eyeFit system assist with accurate measurements, it can also act as a great sales aid and educational tool. Using the tablet, dispensers walk patients though illustrations and descriptions of lens design and treatment options, showing comparisons between products and the benefits of each. For example, there are descriptions and comparisons for progressive lenses versus traditional lined multifocals and lenses with and without an anti-reflective treatment. Showing patients demonstrations on a tablet involves more of their senses and engages them using an avenue of electronic technology that they are familiar and comfortable with and view as high tech.
Consider your current patient presentation style and techniques and the added value you’ll obtain by utilizing the m’eyeFit system. As patients see you embrace technology, it will help gain their confidence and trust as you discuss technically advanced lenses and eyewear options.
