September 2011 Mahwah, NJ – SEIKO Optical Products of America, the global leader in digital ophthalmic lens technology is pleased to offer a new product in the free-form single-vision lens category.

Michael J. Rybacki, Seiko’s Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing stated, “The demand for highly curved prescription frames in clear and sunglasses is increasing, as wearers look for high tech fashions along with comfort and advanced optics. Conventional high-base designs induce asymmetry, which can cause eye fatigue and visual discomfort. Our new Wrap Tech Thin lenses use a free-form panoramic, aspheric and asymmetric design that corrects power error and astigmatism, creating a 50mm wide ‘sweet spot’ of comfortable, natural vision centered at the fitting point. Advanced free-form style-thinning technology is then incorporated to produce the thinnest lenses possible.”

Wrap Tech Thin lenses are available clear & polarized (gray & brown) in 6.00 and 8.00 base curves in 1.67 high-index plastic, as well as in SEIKO Sportswear Transitions® SOLFX™ lenses featuring light green/gray G15 color tint indoors that changes to 85% sunglass shade outdoors when exposed to UV light. To accommodate larger frames, Wrap Tech Thin lenses are automatically decentered 5 or 10mm, giving the lens an effective diameter (ED) of 85mm. Mirror coatings and anti-reflective coatings are also available.
