Free-form Technology

There’s a new technology that could change the way you see—forever.

It’s called “free-form,” a revolutionary digital manufacturing process that uses computer-aided design and surfacing to create high-level, customized eyeglass lenses with your unique prescription.

Think of it as a tailor for your eyes. Just like you can take an off-the-rack pair of pants and have it customized to fit your specific measurements, you can now have lenses made customized for your specific prescription and frames.

Benefits of Customized Free-form Lenses
Many leaders in the vision industry expect free-form technology to be the next revolution in vision correction. In addition to the improved visual clarity that customized free-form lenses provide, you can expect:

  • Exceptional night/low light vision:Free-form lenses can reduce glare and halo effects caused by light sources at night, such as car headlights.
  • Exceptional contrast perception:Free-form lenses can sharpen vision.
  • Exceptional color vision:Free-form lenses can maximize the optics built into your lenses, providing brighter and more intense colors.

While everyone can benefit to a certain extent from customized lenses, people with complex prescriptions and progressive wearers will notice the greatest visual improvements.
