Proven expertise in ocular prosthetics

Medical science regularly makes great advances. Keeping pace with these developments ensures better results, faster and more competent help for patients and greater trust in the doctors carrying out the treatment. With apEye, hospitals and clinics can enable their staff to give even better support to patients on their way to receiving an artificial eye.

The way to apEye

What changes most of all for hospitals, clinics and doctors due to apEye is the duration of the treatment. It is significantly shortened, thus ensuring greater patient satisfaction and increased effectiveness. In order to obtain a perfectly-fitting artificial eye, three steps are important:

1. The Scan

The doctor responsible determines whether the preconditions for producing an artificial eye have been met. If a CASIA2 is available at the hospital or clinic, the doctor can use the scans of the eye socket and the healthy eye as an optical template for the 3D printing process. The scans take only a few seconds – the entire procedure is non-invasive and therefore completely painless and can be completed in less than 30 minutes.

2. The Print

The patient is then referred to an ocularist who orders the 3D print on the basis of the data from the CASIA2. Depending on the hospital or clinic, after only a few days or weeks the finished apEye is delivered to the ocularist  for fitting.

3. The Fitting

Regular follow-up appointments are made to ensure that the artificial eye meets the requirements in terms of fit and look.

CASIA2 – the key to greater patient satisfaction

Using the TOMEY CASIA2, eye specialists can conduct many different measurements. In addition to precise tumour detection, glaucoma diagnostics and detailed cornea measurement or diagnostics for treatment with artificial lenses, the device now also meets all the requirements for rapid and precise scanning of the eye socket. The CASIA2 thus forms the basis for perfectly-fitting artificial eyes made by 3D printer. 

The CASIA2’s top qualities make the procedure not only painless for the patient, but also significantly simpler and faster. The specialist treating the patient can thus demonstrate their expertise and ensure that the treatment is much more pleasant for the patient. Hospitals and clinics equipped with a CASIA2 will then be able to live up to their pioneering role in modern medicine. As the scans of the eye socket and the healthy eye are the key to the new apEye technology and only take seconds to produce, this removes a bottleneck that has hugely held up the production of artificial eyes up to now. Instead of several months, it now takes only a short time for the patient to be provided with a 3D-printed apEye. In view of the higher output and wide range of uses of the CASIA2, the investment in it pays off within a few weeks.

CASIA2 and apEye give hospitals, clinics and doctors a unique selling point in the market and underline the importance of expert eye diagnostics. As important components in the treatment of patients needing ocular prosthetics, they can improve the process and contribute further to patient well-being. Interested? Then get in touch with us.
