Change Your Reality, Change Your Vision

Our partners at HOYA Vision Care Europe have developed and made available in the U.S. market an augmented reality app for the iPad, known as the HOYA Vision Consultant Viewer, or HVC Viewer for short. The HVC Viewer allows patients to experience the benefits of their HOYA lenses before they buy them. Here’s how it works: The optician picks the appropriate lens type for the patient form the available modules, for example progressive lenses, then the patient holds up the iPad and through the camera can look around the room and see the benefits HOYA progressive lenses will provide as they would experience them! “This is an exciting use of technology,” stated Barney Dougher, President of HOYA Vision Care, NA, he continued, “Everyone in the optical business is tired of trying to explain what ‘better’ means to their patients. Now we can actually show them what better means with a near real life experience, that is the power of this augmented reality app.” The key to the HVC Viewer is that it is a consumer benefits driven sales consultation. Spectacle lens wearers will be able to simply experience the difference in performance between various types of lenses in real life situations. The...

ProDesign’s 4th Dimension 4663-71

ProDesign’s 4th Dimension 4663-71

This collection was inspired by the desire to create a high fashion, contemporary line of frames for the urbane, design-oriented man and woman. Even though the shapes are obviously inspired by the past – you’ll find the classic panto, the Jackie O-shape and the curvy butterfly shape, the collection remains fresh and relevant, because of the colors and the way the acetates layers are combined. The design is “honest” with nothing to hide – you’ll even notice the core wire as an extra detail once you take a closer look at the material. The finishing touch is the distinct end tip color that we have placed on the inside as a little surprise! Quite untraditionally there are no less than nine shapes in this collection! Two shapes only come in two colors and the rest come in four colors each. They are all ready for progressive lenses.
