SYSTEM OVERVIEW

FocalPoints is a collection of linked software programs that will help GP lens manufacturers integrate and fully exploit modern lens technologies. It was developed from the ground up on the following principles:

  • Graphical user interface
  • Universal scalability
  • Advanced CAD design
  • Barcode manufacturing
  • Centralized database

FocalPoints addresses all aspects of designing and manufacturing contact lenses: lens design, order processing, automated fitting of corneal maps, direct drive of the lathes, manufacturing follow-up, traceability, statistics, invoicing and shipping.

A POWERFUL LENS DESIGN SUITE

FocalPoints Designer is at the core of the system. Designer it's a component that allows you to create the rules that define a lens design, set materials and machining characteristics, and import and export saved designs. There are also a wide arrays of tools for visualizing the finished lens both on and off the eye.

ADVANCED LENS DESIGN
Rules Based Design

With FocalPoints you can easily design and manufacture symmetrical, toric, and asymmetrical lenses. Set the optical characteristics of lenses and use a wide variety of tools to create rules-based lens designs. FP Designer has an powerful rules-based design feature that allows you to set Simple or Complex rules, and even Tables, which can be applied and reused in all your design process.

INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY
Barcode Scanner

With single point data entry parameters for each order are entered only once, data-entry errors are drastically reduced with consequent time-savings. A barcode input architecture requires no data-entry by the lathe operator. Only one scan is needed per surface. While production tracking enables to monitor closely rejects and productivity.

DISTRIBUTE DESIGNS SECURELY
Design Licensing

Lenses designed in FP Designer can be exported and sent to another Lab equipped with FocalPoints. This operation is fail-safe and designs can be encrypted by the Owner so that:

  • Design information is hidden
  • The lens cannot be modified

Only the Owner can license its designs:

  • Setting an expiry date
  • Limiting the number of runs
  • Protecting the license

Licensing advantages in FocalPoints:

  • Fast and easy setup
  • Unique selection of designs
  • Reduced risk and inventory
  • Same FP design for any lathe
CLIENT/SERVER ARCHITECTURE

FP Client Server Architecture

FocalPoints interfaces easily with the Windows, the major Lathes and the most used Instruments in the business. Personalization and modularity are an essential part of our philosophy. The database is centralized, any number of lathes or instruments can be added to the Lab in a client-server architecture.

CENTRALIZED DATABASE

FocalPoints includes a full feature database for entering, tracking and viewing lens orders. Manufacturing a lens is as easy as selecting an existing design, entering basic lens specifications and clicking OK. While performing complex operations, the system is actually simple for the operator because so many functions take place automatically. FocalPoints operates in a local area network connected under Windows. Lathes can be also connected directly under DOS.
