  • Morphing Engine

    The power of the morphing approach is the ability to independently vary each individual lens design parameter or combination of parameters in predefined ways. This continuous variation of parameters such as corridor length, distance zone width, near zone width, inset, object distances and periphery delivers expansive design flexibility to meet every portfolio need.

  • Modular Customization

    The modular approach to customization allows maximum flexibility to turn features on or off at will. Parameters such as Rx optical optimization, position of wear, frame customization and other individual parameter customization can be configured according to product portfolio needs - ensuring full performance and price coverage.

  • Calculation Interface

    The calculation interface integrates the lens design, modular customization for each individual prescription, and individual wearer parameters to calculate the optimized lens design and cosmetic appearance.
