TOOLS TO SUPPLEMENT YOUR EXPERTISE
THE LATEST IN LENS TECHNOLOGY
W.A.V.E. TECHNOLOGY 2™
Wavefront Advanced Vision Enhancement identifies and reduces High Order Aberrations in the lens, resulting in clearer, sharper vision at any distance, as well as greater color contrast and wider fields of vision. W.A.V.E. Technology 2 customizes wavefront control to the patient’s visual requirements, resulting in sharper vision at all distances and in all lighting conditions, even at night. W.A.V.E. innovation is incorporated in all Varilux® lenses and Eyezen™+ lenses.
This unique design calculation allows patients to see multiple distances in a single gaze direction. It significantly extends vision within arm's reach so patients no longer have to move their heads to find the "sweet spot" in the lens. The Xtend innovation is included in the Varilux® X Series™ lenses.
Our revolutionary patented semi-finish blank with a unique shape delivers the lowest distortion, resulting in virtual elimination of that “off balance” feeling. Nanoptix Technology combines a patented lens shape and a unique optical design calculation to control magnification and distortion throughout the lens. Nanoptix is incorporated in the Varilux X Series lenses.
SynchronEyes Technology calculates both right and left lenses as a pair, which allows patients to transition from near to far and every distance in between smoothly and effortlessly. SynchronEyes Technology is incorporated in Varilux X Series lenses.
4D Technology is the only technology to use a personalized measurement for the leading dominant eye, delivering faster visual reaction time when shifting from one point of view to another. 4D innovation is incorporated in Varilux X Series lenses.
This exclusive, patented formulation consists of unique dyes that are integrated into the surface of the lens. The dyes are made up of molecules that constantly and smoothly recalibrate as the light around you changes. They darken and lighten to just the right degree so the optimal amount of light reaches your eyes. People wear their lenses all day, every day, in a variety of locations, temperatures, and weather conditions. Their position in relation to the sun also changes quite a bit. We took all of these factors into account when we tested Chromea7 technology in over 200 real life conditions representing over 1,000 scenarios that wearers experience around the world. This innovation is incorporated in Transitions® lenses.
Eyezen+ enhanced single vision lenses provide major benefits that ordinary single vision lenses cannot—defense against digital eye strain†, reduced exposure to Harmful Blue Light*, and sharper vision than traditional single vision lenses. Eyezen+ lenses include Essilor’s Smart Blue Filter™ feature to reduce exposure to Harmful Blue Light, and come in four unique designs containing varying levels of accommodative relief. With the NEW Eyezen+ 0 design, Eyezen+ lenses are now available for all single vision age groups.
The patented Pad Control System™ allows lenses to be blocked for edging and mounting, allowing Crizal to be the most cleanable lens available. The High Surface Density™ (HSD) Super Hydrophobic layer repels water, smudges, and sweat for cleaner, more durable lenses. Anti-Reflective Layers minimize glare for more comfortable vision and a more attractive appearance. And the SR Booster™ Layer provides maximum scratch resistance with a glass-like surface.
Multi-Angular Technology™ is a calculation process that accounts for an increased range of light sources. Normally, no-glare products are designed to reduce reflections of light striking the lens from straight ahead—specifically, for a “cone” of light striking the lens within 15⁰ of straight ahead. Multi-Angular Technology expands that angle to 45⁰. Optimizing the no-glare stack (with the introduction of a new nanolayer in the Crizal stack) for a wider range of angles allows the designer to reduce the overall reflection of the lens, which increases clarity for the wearer.Get More Info
