TheRightContact.com mobile app is in its final stage of development. TheRightContact App, which will first be available on iTunes, is set to arrive early 2013. Our Apple developers have created both an iPhone and iPad version.

Like the website, TheRightContact mobile app will allow users to easily search and compare contact lenses as well as lens care products. This new technology will enable practitioners to find the same types of relevant parameters, but now even faster using their mobile devices. The 5 database structure will remain the same. Products are listed under the categories of Soft Lenses, Gas Permeable Lenses, Hybrid Lenses, Button Materials and Lens Products.

Other features of the website are being repeated on the mobile platform as well. Articles, Videos, Glossary, Fitting Tools, including calculators will still be accessible. Using push notification technology users will also be notified immediately on product releases, parameter changes, and other types of news within the contact lens industry.
