e.lens Version 2.0.23 Beta Download
(For authorized e.lens clients and labs only)
Right click here then click the option "Save Target As", and
then save as C:\ELENS\ELENS.EXE
Please note that this is a beta version of e.lens 2.0. When the final release is available, it will be automaticaly downloaded onto your computer and shouldn't require any changes to calibration or routine.
e.lens v2.0 contains several major improvements to the software including a new "Dual-Axis Calibration feature. This new
calibration feature completely changes how e.lens scans, using a new mathematical model for lens edging. This virtual model of
an edger and your lens allows you to see onscreen exactly how it will be cut, including any roundness it may add on
corners for high A, low B shapes. Switching between dual-axis and regular calibration *does* require
a calibration before sending any jobs over as your old calibration may be something simular to -232, while the new calibration might
be something like +20 or -20.
Several other new features are available, including "Database". When Database is turned on in configuration, clicking "New" from the
main screen will present the ability to store commonly used shapes. After you've stored a shape, you can click the shape on any future
job and morph the A and B values to be whatever size you wish to create. This function is mostly intended for practices that have a high
precentage of rimless work. How many times have you had a customer come in, say they really like a frame design, but the lenses don't
fit their face. With the new database option, you can scan in the basic frame, then enhance the B to allow for a better fit. This takes a
tremendous workload off the labs who used to guess as to how you would want the lens manipulated. After you've entered a few frames in, you
can also use the "Blend Shapes" button. This button allows you to pick the top part and bottom part of a frame, then combine them together
with whatever B size you'd like. So you can create an endless array of new lenses to fit the mounting bracket of an already existing frame!
If you click on the icon in the upper left hand corner, a new Trim History option allows you to remove history
to save disk space and speed find features. Find feature enhanced with first name/lastname combo searches.
Removal of the "dial server" option as we no longer support direct dial-in.
The job entry screen has a few new options. "On File" allows you to tell the lab that they
should already have the frame shape on file and you want them to use it. "NewFrame" indicates
that you wish to purchase the frame from the lab. "Medicaid" brings up a seperate screen that
allows you to enter in additional information for medicaid jobs if your lab is
authorized to process these jobs(please check with your lab before sending any
jobs with medicaid enabled as it does contain patient sensitive data and the
lab must be authorized from the state to receive this information).
Starting with 2.0.18, e.lens has beta connectivity to a future version of CompuLink.
Starting with 2.0.21, e.lens has the Wrap frame type. 2.0.21 will become the auto-updated version of e.lens on Feb 23rd, 2006
