Lens selection advice tool

Point-of-sale software for opticians to help customers choose the right lenses

Description

Software to be used in-store by opticians to help customers find the best lens for them. The tool offers a variety of filter options to narrow a huge list of lenses down to a manageable subset. Step by step, the optician can set the filters according to the customer's needs and preferences, interactively demonstrate use cases for different kinds of coatings, and simulate the optical effects they have when wearing the glasses in different situations. Once the customer arrived at a decision, the optician can copy the respective product code and use it to continue with the order process.
