Eyenavision Introduces Hi-Vex™ Lenses
PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (February 21, 2012) – Eyenavision, Inc., a company focused on innovative consumer products for the optical service industry, announces the release of the “Eyenavision Hi-Vex™” lens product.
Eyenavision Hi-Vex are semi-finished lenses capable of being surfaced by optical labs for multiple lens applications. Named for the lens material Hi-Vex™, Eyenavision Hi-Vex semi-finished lenses are ideal for surfacing jobs ranging from high cylinder single vision prescriptions to digitally surfaced lenses utilizing the latest free form designs. EyenavisionHi-Vex can also be surfaced to 0.8mm at the edge, making it the only prescription lens material for free form add powers utilizing the Chemistrie™ Magnetic Lens Layering System.
Hi-Vex has excellent tensile strength combined with strong optics (46 ABBE value) making it an ideal lens material for drill mounts and frames requiring grooved lenses. Eyenavision Hi-Vex has a refractive index of 1.56 and is recommended for powers ranging from -6.00 through +4.00. These semi-finished lenses are available in base curves of 0 and 2 through 8.
Eyenavision Hi-Vex lenses are made from the same material as the highly successful Chemistrie+™ finished reader lenses already sold by Eyenavision. Now labs will be able to fully leverage their digital surfacing capabilities by offering free form lens designs made from Eyenavision Hi-Vex and surfaced to a 0.8mm edge thickness, making the lens perfect for the Chemistrie Magnetic Lens Layering System. Eyenavision Hi-Vex surfaced to a 0.8mm thickness for use as a Chemistrie layered lens will be marketed by Eyenavision under the product name “Progressive On Demand”.
“We believe our Eyenavision Hi-Vex lens product will be a big hit with labs and retailers as it represents a great value for the patients” commented Joseph Zewe, CEO of Eyenavision. Dennis G. Zelazowski, Chief Innovation Officer of Eyenavision added, “Eyenavision Hi-Vex is the lens material that will allow optical labs to take full advantage of their digital surfacing technology and overcome the weaknesses associated with other lens materials.”
Eyenavision Inc. is the developer of innovative consumer products for the independent optical industry. Under the brand name Chemistrie, Eyenavision is best known for their patented clip-on that attaches through the use of magnets embedded in the lenses.
