Free Form Laboratory
“In the world over 61% of the population or 177 million people need some sort of vision correction. 61% need eyewear due to “nearsightedness” (myopia) and 31% need vision correction due to age related “farsightedness” (presbyopia).“
Free-Form is a new technology that is revolutionizing digital manufacturing process. It uses computer-aided design and surfacing to create high-level, customized eyeglass lenses with unique prescriptions. It can be called, a tailor for the eyes. Just like you can take a pair of pants off-the-rack and have it customized to fit your specific measurements, you can now have lenses made customized for your specific prescriptions and according to your desired frames.
The orders are sent to our lab where lenses are created on a computer-driven, free-form generator. The generator reads and responds to the new, high-tech prescription written to 1/100th of a diopter. The lenses are created to account for variations in the eyes across the surface of the lens. This will help a great deal to patients, in order for them to see better across more of their lens.
