Introducing Our New Multifocal Management Program!


To streamline and simplify the fitting and ordering of multifocal lenses for Eye Care Practitioners, Art Optical has introduced the “FlexFit Multifocal Management Program.” The portfolio of proprietary lens designs offered in the FlexFit program include the Renovation series, which is the nation’s leading GP multifocal; as well as the mPower! and CLASIKcn GP designs; and the Intelliwave Multifocal & Multifocal Toric custom soft lenses. This comprehensive range of custom design options allows the ECP to manage all types of presbyopic patients – from emerging to advanced presbyopes, to post-LASIK patients now requiring near correction, and for those over 40 with extreme cylinder or an out-of-inventory parameter Rx.

When working with a professional fitting consultant, the FlexFit program allows ECP’s unlimited fit adjustments and design changes in a 6-month fitting period, with full cancellation/money back privileges. For added convenience and to save the practice handling time and return shipping expense, refit lens returns are no longer required and instant credit processing has been implemented.

The goal of the FlexFit program is to reduce the risk involved with multifocal fitting so ECP’s can feel confident introducing the multifocal option to a broader range of their presbyopic patients. The flexibility of the lens design platform and the simplification of policies are geared toward improving fitting success, saving chair time, reducing return handling and making multifocal patient management easier and more efficient for all ECP’s.
