Fitting advices

  • Total diameter: = corneal diameter – 2.00 mm
  • Base curve:
    • ASP: r0 = Kflat (rcfl)
    • SMS:
      • ( rcfl – rcst) ≤ 0.30 mm -> BC = rcfl – 0.05
      • (rcfl – rcst) ≤ 0.40 mm -> rO = rcfl – 0.10
      • (rcfl – rcst) ≤ 0.50 mm -> rO = rcfl – 0.15
  • Flattening: ASP & SMS: eccentricity (En) = eccentricity of the cornea at 30° rounded up to the next 1/10

Fitting advices for gas permeable contact lenses


  • Insert trial lens for a minimum duration of 30 minutes. Ask patient to focus on the floor to minimise the foreign body sensation.
  • Evaluation of the subjective comfort.
  • Over-refraction
  • Slit lamp examination:
    • Dynamic evaluation with diffuse illumination:
      • Eye in primary gaze and blinking normally.
      • Movement (speed) and position after blink and during eye movements:
        • Vertical movement
        • Horizontal movement
        • Centration
        • A good fitting lens will be evenly centered on the cornea (±0.5 mm)
        • The movement should be pronounced but not too big (1-2 mm)
  • Static evaluation with fluoroscopy:
    • Evaluation when patient is looking straight ahead and the lens is centered on the cornea without impact of the eyelids on the lens: Evaluation of the tear film thickness under the lens; tear film < 10μm = no florescein is visible.
      • central optic zone with alignement fluorescein pattern
      • inter-peripheral zone with small amount of fluorescein
      • peripheral zone with a band of increased fluorescein which will be needed for a good tear film exchange
Advice for Toriflex

The optimal fluorescein pattern shows a small fluor lake in the center and a larger fluor ring in the periphery (env. 0.75 mm).
Vertical movement should be around 1 mm. In case of too much movement, decrease both central back curves (r0fl and r0st) with -0.10 mm. In case of low riders, increase both central back curves (r0fl and r0st) with +0.10 mm or in case the upper lid is pushing the lens down, increase the total diameter ØT.

In case of high riders, decrease total diameter ØT

For Toriflex TP only:

In case of instable stabilisation and/or high riders, increase the prism to 2.0 cm/m.

WARNING: the stabilisation prism induce an optical prism. This should be adjusted on both eyes.

First contact lens choice

Progression system and central optic zone (Zoc)

Reading zone choice

Determine if the vision is alternate (change of optic zones by translation) or simultaneous (change of optic zones by visual cortex selection):

  • Alternate vision: reading zone in periphery (most of the cases)
  • Simultaneous vision: reading zone in centre
RequirementsBifocal BfSimple progressive Sp
Myopia Addition < 1.75 dpt
Myopia: Addition ≥ 1.75 dpt
Priority in distance vision
Priority in near visiondominant eyenon dominant eye
Good contrast
  • Distance vision depends on centering, near vision on the movement (translation).
  • For a good translation, a movement from 1 to 2 mm is needed. It is affected by rO and ØT.
  • The fluoroscopy must show good optic zone alignment. 

Central optic zone, position and diameter:

Recommendations for the 1st choice: standard pupil (3.50–4.00 mm) with normal lighting

Quality assurance

These materials are in conformity with the standard ISO 10993-1 defining the biocompatibility of materials.

SwissLens manufacturing process warrants this biocompatibility even after the manufacturing process, in particular without adding polish material. This standard is required by the quality assurance system of SwissLens.
