    Is there an atoric digitally surfaced segmented multifocal?

    I have a patient with -4.00 ATR cyl in need of a FT or D seg.

    My lab "digitally surfaces everything", but I don't think the software is cutting anything other than a toric back surface on most segmented multifocals.

    We know that Shamir, housebrands, et al have designed asphericity/atoricity for their SV lenses and PALs.

    But what about applying the "individualization" to old platforms such as the segmented MF?


    Thanks!

    Thanks, guys.

    I didn't realize that there hasn't been much work done for FT lenses. Good for Hoya. (Bad for me.)

    DVI asph-st28 and Essilor(yuck) Bifocal AB. I'm not sure how the Essilor lens is optimized but the DVI lens allows for POW inputs.
