We bring contact lens fitting to a totally different level!
What is Claire?
“CLAIRE” (Contact Lens Artificial Intelligence Research and Engineering) is an Artificial Intelligence based APPs platform that provides Eye Care Professionals (ECP’s) with virtual technical support, calculations, and ordering tools for specialty contact lenses management. CLAIRE is the Nº1 platform in the market that aggregates solutions for specialty contact lenses (CL’s). The Premium apps are produced by CLAIRE’s team and bring additional advantages:
o Easy and intuitive interface.
o Reduction of additional technical support calls.
o Immediate educational tips given throughout the fitting process.
o The patient selection module mitigates errors and future complications.
o Treatment traceability for patients’ follow up and Lens’ adjustment capabilities.
o Lens ordering to the selected supplier.
Research has shown that ECP’s consider Specialty Contact Lens management as being time consuming (88%), and technically difficult (84%), which results in many lens changes (58%) and a decreased patient compliance. On top of that, 57% of inquired ECPs do contact their supplier’s technical support on a regularly basis. CLAIRE adds value by increasing efficiency, reducing time and costs during the fitting process, by allowing the ECP’s to minimize errors, increase their clinical portfolio and patient satisfaction.
CLAIRE offers different payment options for an easy access to premium web-based APPs. Additionally, we implement partnerships with contact lens manufacturers and distributors operating in fast-growing market segments like myopia, presbyopia and irregular cornea.
