Combining advanced virtual try-on with 3D digital optical measurements, the Touchless Optical Platform expands opticians’ capabilities, allowing them to serve patients more efficiently and effectively in-office, and for the first time, remotely.
Using the FaceID hardware on an iPad or iPhone, add a stunningly accurate 3D model of a patient’s face to their file, taking literally thousands of optical and anatomical measurements in less than a minute.
Scan the patient during check-in or pre-test so you can begin shopping for them while they’re in the exam lane or waiting outside.
From the comfort of their own home, a patient can scan their face on their iPhone and upload the scan to your practice’s patient file.
Our fitting algorithm searches your catalogue of frames—traditional branded frames as well as custom-tailored—and presents only those which will fit your patient. It offers a 3D, photo-realistic preview of how they’ll look wearing them.
Beginning the shopping experience with only the frames that would fit, then narrowing the selection on a screen, a patient only needs to try on 2-3 frames to find their pair.
Shop alongside your patient over a video call, using their virtual try-on as a shared environment. Help them find what looks good and understand why it’s the right choice for their lifestyle and taste.
Unlike other Virtual Try-Ons, the Touchless Optical Platform delivers incredibly precise digital optical measurements. You and your patients will appreciate fewer remakes and fewer progressive non-adapts.
Measurements are delivered instantly and safely. Opticians no longer need to position themselves extremely close to their patients for a precise fitting, and they can spend more time consulting on lens designs.
Order lenses from your lab within a virtual appointment. Only Topology can offer 3D Position of Wear measurements precise enough to dispense even the most challenging prescriptions, without ever physically putting the frame on the patient’s face.
Adjustment instructions are sent to your optician or your lab at the time of purchase. That way, you can offer curbside pickup, or delivery to the home, with an out-of-the-box fit guarantee.
With adjustment instructions in hand, save your patients a second trip to the store, and leave open your appointment calendar for new patients and eye exams.
With adjustment instructions sent to your opticians, we finish the virtual experience without a single office visit, allowing for optimal convenience for your patients.
Did your patient decide not to purchase today? Did a new collection from their favorite designer just arrive? Send an email to your patients with an embedded virtual try-on, and offer to complete the sale with the click of a button.
Dramatically increase the lifetime value of a customer by re-engaging your walk-outs, increasing your multi-pairing, and encouraging them to come in for their next visit sooner.
A better shopping experience will lead to more sales for your practice.
Precise measurements means fewer remakes, faster accommodation, and reduced non-adapts.
Serve patients anywhere, even from home, to expand flexibility and options for patients and staff alike.
Cut time spent browsing your shelf, disinfecting frames, or measuring lenses, so you can see more patients.
If you offer more convenience and more certainty than online sellers, you’ll increase your capture rate.
Reduce physical contact and physical proximity between staff and patients with digital tools.
Traditionally, the biggest blocker to a second sale is the inconvenience of two additional trips to the store.
You can offer every color variant of the frames you stock, and even those styles you didn’t purchase.
The platform also enables custom-tailored eyewear, so any style in any color can be made to fit any patient.
Topology’s platform is way more than just a virtual try-on (though, when you see it in action, you’ll agree it’s better than any other out there). This is not merely a tool for visualization—it’s a dispensing platform designed to deliver better optical measurements, with an ability to help you pre-adjust frames before delivering them to a patient.
The platform is designed to be deployed on iPads in your stores, because it’s a professionally- driven experience. While we’re working to develop white-label e-commerce solutions for retail partners, our focus is on enhancing the optician-patient relationship with a better experience in-store and a virtual appointment capability.
A virtual appointment is the optical equivalent of telemedicine. Your patient can download an app to their iPhone, scan their face, and upload their scan to your practice. Then, you can use a virtual try-on as a shared environment, where you shop alongside your customer, helping them pick out the best frame and lens for their lifestyle, taste, and prescription. Finally, you’ll export lens measurements and pre-adjustment instructions so you can order lenses directly from your lab and adjust the frames to fit without your patient ever having to come in.
In order to power a VTO precise enough to know exactly where a frame will fit on a face and how to dispense lenses with sub-millimeter accuracy, we leverage a 3D scanner, and currently that’s only available on iPhones and iPads. For customers with no iPhone, you can scan them when they come in for an eye exam, and they can use the VTO in virtual appointments or over a browser at any time in the future.
Absolutely. Most of our sales are made by a professional optician in a retail setting, and our in-store experience offers them the chance to pick out materials and colors, work with a trained stylist, touch and feel sample frames, etc. The same 3D face scan that powers the Touchless Optical Platform also drives Custom-Tailored design.
When it comes to Topology's Custom-Tailored frames manufactured in San Francisco, we provide those. However, the much larger catalogue of branded eyewear that has been added to our platform will be provided by you and your frame supplier. Topology simply offers visualizations, lens measurements, and pre-adjustment instructions.
At this time, vendor agreements do not allow us to advertise this list on our website. Please contact us to find out how much of your catalogue is covered.
Depending on your preference, we can offer lenses with the Custom-Tailored frames, or you can order lenses directly from your preferred lab. For stock eyewear, we offer lens measurements and adjustment instructions, but we do not handle fulfillment.
