Abstract

OrthoTool2000 is a powerful software tool that allows the lens fitter to simulate the fit of RGPs by entering basic patient information and lens parameters. This simulation gives the lens fitter the opportunity to visualize the appropriateness of a particular lens design without even placing the lens on the eye. Using OrthoTool2000, complex and simple lenses can be designed, evaluated, and understood with relative ease. The purpose of this OrthoTool2000 training guide is to provide the novice lens fitter with a basic competence and understanding of RGP lens fitting.
