Special Production

Special Production

Sometimes specially produced lenses are required outside the standard range.
This may be advisable if the wearing comfort of the lenses can be improved, e. g. with specially computed, thinner lenses produced using the OPTIMA technique. It may also be necessary if special visual problems or special visual tasks require unconventional solutions.

OPTIMA

With the computer-assisted OPTIMA technique, the edge and center thickness visible in the frame can be reduced to a minimum. Often, the lens can be produced much more thinly than the smallest possible uncut lens diameter allows.

Slab-off technique

In some cases visual problems can arise if a patient with higher anisometropia predominantly requires close-up vision. The slab-off technique is a special grinding method used to generate a compensating prism in multifocal and progressive lenses.

Miscellaneous

Time and time again, there is a possibility of producing lenses which lie outside our standard lens range. In each individual case, our Technical Customer Service Center checks if the production of the required non-standard version is meaningful and possible from the production viewpoint.
