For decades, contact lens professionals have used journals to obtain contact lens information. While this was an adequate tool in the past, this search method is quickly turning obsolete. Analysis shows that more and more people are turning to computers and mobile devices to find the information they need.
Has the contact lens market kept up with these changes? No. Traditional print sources are just unable to assist practitioners with the thousands of contact lenses currently on the market. With journals as the only option, it is becoming increasingly difficult to sift through all the excess to find the right product for one’s patient.
In order for doctors to learn about the various contact lens designs, and better understand their differences, there needs to be an easily accessible centralized location where one can review these lens specifications. This location should be updated in real-time, offer new ways of analyzing contact lens products, host an online community and provide an overall next level resource for practitioners.
The Right Contact, Inc. has set out to do just that! TheRightContact.com is a resource for contact lens professionals (see the ad http://youtu.be/ghqY8id9u2Y). What was done was combine the individual specifications of more than 2000 contact lens products from over 150 manufacturers. Using a state of the art website and mobile application, TheRightContact.com is now enabling contact lens professionals to be able to sort through contact lens products more efficiently than ever before.
