A virtual reality first

Nautilus is a virtual reality dispensing aid designed to help your practice provide an immersive patient experience.

Recommending a lens will never be the same again.

An exclusive range of benefits

A unique patient experience

Nautilus places your patient at the heart of the demonstration, by simulating their future vision solution. Your patients will be completely immersed and will be able to see for themselves the benefits of the lenses that you recommended.

Demonstrate lenses like never before


Nautilus simulates in three different ways: 3D virtual scenes, 360° reality and augmented reality. Patients are able to compare multiple lens designs and experience the various solutions available.

Reinforces your expertise

Explaining the benefits of a lens can sometimes be difficult. With the Nautilus demonstrations, recommending a lens solution is made easier. Your expertise is reinforced and your recommendation strengthened.

Designed to fit in your practice

Nautilus has been designed to fit effortlessly within your practice. It's easy to handle, easy to clean and comes in a stylish case.

An experience controlled by your fingertips


Nautilus is synced to a tablet operated by your dispensing optician who is in charge of the demonstration.
The device simply connects via Bluetooth or WiFi - no hassle.
