Eyenavision Receives OLA Award of Excellence for Chemistrie+ Reader Lenses
PITTSBURGH, Pennsylvania (September 27, 2011) – Eyenavision, Inc., a company focused on innovative consumer products for the optical industry, has received the Optical Laboratories Association (OLA) Award of Excellence in the accessory products category for the Chemistrie+ Reader Lens. The award presentation occurred at the International Vision Expo West in Las Vegas on September 23.
Chemistrie+ is a reader lens that attaches to an eyeglass wearer’s prescription lens utilizing micro-magnets embedded in the actual lenses. Chemistrie+ was introduced earlier this year using the same patented attachment technology utilized by the popular Chemistrie Sunlens. Chemistrie+ is perfect for eyeglass wearers who don’t want a permanent line in their visual field, have difficulty adapting to progressive lenses, or those who want the freedom to apply and remove their reading prescription at will. Chemistrie+ is also an ideal solution for those suffering from eyewear fatigue due to extended computer use.
“We are honored that the OLA members have chosen us for this award so soon after the introduction of Chemistrie+,” commented Joseph Zewe, Eyenavision’s President and CEO. Mr. Zewe added, “We are pleased by the response we have received from optometrists, opticians, and their customers and we plan to more aggressively market this product following this very successful launch.”
Chemistrie+ is offered in add strengths of +.50, +.75, +1.00, +1.25, and +1.50, all of which are available in base curves of 2, 4, 5, and 6. Eyenavision will be adding additional strengths later this year. The Chemistrie+ lenses are fabricated from Hi-Vex, a lens material which has the lightweight, tensile strength, and superior optical qualities (46 ABBE value) that Eyenavision is seeking for the product. Chemistrie+ lenses block 100% of UV rays, are surfaced to a .8mm edge thickness and have an anti-reflective coating.
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.
