Our client is one of the largest eye care companies in the world who is a market leader when it comes to finding innovative solutions to help their customers!

The Challenge: Upgrade an existing application to integrate an industry-recognized eye calculation algorithm

Our client is a leader in the eye care industry, wanted to enhance their flagship software platform by utilizing an algorithm developed by a world-renowned eye doctor. However, the algorithm was proprietary. The IQ team challenged the client and the eye doctor to develop a way to access the calculations without exposing the algorithm itself

The Solution: Enhancing a prescriptive eye care application without revealing proprietary algorithmic information.

IQ worked directly with the eye doctor and implemented an API in the doctor’s software. IQ then modified the client’s application to allow it to safely access the proprietary calculations. After rigorous testing, the upgraded application was released and is used by thousands of eye doctors around the world. Technologies include Visual Basic.net, C#, and Docker.
