Driven by a passion for innovation and development, Hoya Vision is constantly moving boundaries. By use of extensive research and cutting-edge technology, Hoya provides tailored optimized experiences – both for the eye care professional and the spectacle wearer.
Lens making is a delicate process. It depends, to a large extent, on the technological skills and knowledge of the manufacturer. Even the smallest error can have a major impact on your customers' quality of vision. Hoya develops their lens technology to support opticians who want to be sure they are selling the highest quality products and wearers who desire clear, comfortable vision at all times.
All Hoya's lenses are produced with freeform surfacing. The main benefit of this lens technology is that we can consider the lens surface as a series of individual points. They then cut each of these points – at the pixel level – along multiple axes. Such precision means that we can optimize each lens for every prescription. They can even incorporate frame, fitting and wearing parameters into the lens calculation. The result is a highly personalized lens, every time.
Unique Premium Product
By selecting Hoya Vision lenses, you can be confident that you are wearing a state-of-the-art product resulting from a wealth of knowledge and experience. Put simply, Hoya provides you with the best possible technology solutions to support you with a unique premium product range that sets you apart.
Single Vision Lenses
Hoya Vision's single vision lens designs have been perfected with various recent innovations. Your prescription is individually calculated and produced with our point-by-point freeform technologies. As every pixel on the lens surface has its own calculation value, your prescription can be uniquely cut into the lens. The result is pixel-perfect precision and outstanding visual performance.
Are you having increasing difficulty focusing at close range? Do you experience momentarily blurred vision when transitioning between viewing distances?
Then you may have presbyopia, a common change in eyesight that typically affects people over the age of 40, and progressive lenses could be the solution for you. Progressive lenses have a gradual curvature across the lens surface and provide not only clearer vision at near and far distances but also smooth, comfortable progression in between.
We’ve taken a research-oriented approach to progressive lens development. Rather than relying on traditional lens-making techniques, we’ve revolutionized progressive lens design technology, enabling vision correction tailored to your personal needs.
Hoyalux iD InStyle
The introduction of Hoyalux iD, since renamed Hoyalux iD InStyle, revolutionized the premium multifocal sector.
All the benefits in one integrated design.
With traditional progressive lenses, the back surface is progressive while the front surface holds the prescription power - or vice versa. This means a choice has to be made between a fast interaction between far and near in combination with a narrow near segment or having a wide near segment that results in a long corridor length.
In Hoyalux iD InStyle, the addition is split into horizontal and vertical progressive components, that are placed in the best position in relation to the eye. Because of this unique structure, Hoyalux iD InStyle integrates the best of both worlds: A wide, distortion-free field of vision at all distances and fast interaction between far and near. Hoyalux iD InStyle ensures easy adaptation and guarantees a truly comfortable, and balanced visual experience.
- Widest, distortion-free field of vision
- Fast interaction between far and near
- Stable image perception, especially when moving
- Optimal near vision performance
Hoyalux iD LifeStyle V+
Inspired by People. Optimised by Technology
Hoyalux iD LifeStyle V+ is Hoya’s progressive lens design that we can entirely dedicate to the feedback that came from you. Maybe even without knowing it, you gave us important information through your ordering behavior and data input in the MyStyle iDentifier. Wearer analysis and direct customer feedback through wearing tests, clinical trials and consumer research have also added to insights on the visual needs of modern presbyopes. Together with a freeform aspherisation process and design calculation technology Hoyalux iD LifeStyle V+ clearly is the result of people-based innovation.
An important conclusion we drew from wearer analysis and order data is that one design for all does not work. Hoyalux iD MyStyle, therefore, was a major source of inspiration for Hoya in the development of Hoyalux iD LifeStyle V+. This led to two design variations that will help you meet the individual visual requirements of your target group to an even greater extent.
Hoyalux iD LifeStyle V+ features:
- Maximum visual acuity and a crisper image perception
- A noticeably more relaxed vision
- A more accurate correction
- Stable vision when using modern everyday equipment such as tablets and smartphones
ID LifeStyle Clarity Lenses
For active individuals who frequently shift their focus between near and far objects.
Clarity lenses are designed to meet the visual needs of those who lead active lifestyles, providing wider and clearer fields of vision when looking ahead and into the distance.
If you're a sports or outdoor enthusiast - or you're just "on-the-go" all the time - and fine print is becoming more difficult to read, ask your eye care professional if Clarity lenses are right for you.
ID LifeStyle Harmony Lenses
For those who primarily focus on objects and tasks no more than an arm's length away.
Harmony lenses are designed for those who already wear progressive lenses, and are having additional difficulty seeing close up.
If you frequently perform tasks at arm's length - like reading a book or using a tablet device - and you'd appreciate a broader, more comfortable near zone of vision to help you see the details, ask your eye care professional if Harmony lenses are right for you.
Tact Lenses are made specifically for those who work in front of a computer for many hours a day. They help with eyestrain and other symptoms associated with computer vision syndrome by helping you focus more clearly on the screen.
TACT lenses maximize your visual range and focus at arm’s length distances, providing a clearer viewing zone up to 5 times larger than conventional eyeglass lenses. And they’re available with our Super HiVision lens treatment to eliminate glare and reflections from office lights and computer screens. TACT lenses are also amazingly smudge-proof, so you can always focus on the task at hand.
The way human beings see the world has changed dramatically in recent years. Our viewing ranges have gone from distant horizons to intermediate zones, to now primarily focusing on near-tasks. Most of us simply don’t realize the harmful effects this shift has had on our vision and our overall health.
SYNC SINGLE VISION LENSES are designed to provide effortless, comfortable viewing adaptations to whatever your visually strenuous days demand.
The revolutionary design of SYNC lenses allows you to focus on all directions and distances – while your eyes remain relaxed – all day long. Not only does this alleviate eyestrain, it significantly reduces fatigue caused by our every day near task routines.
Traditional computer screens are giving way to ever-smaller displays on tablets, eReaders, netbooks and smartphones. So now when we’re texting, tweeting, surfing, blogging, emailing, or playing, we’re putting more pressure than ever on our eyes.
Hoya EX3 - Lens Coatings
HOYA’s Super Hi Vision EX3 coating provides twice the scratch resistance of any AR coating available while maximizing light to the eye to optimize sight. The result is a more durable lens with minimal glare. Super Hi Vision EX3 also features an improved hydrophobic layer, providing a finish that resists smudges, fingerprints, dirt, and water for a clear view of any condition. The many benefits of a good anti-reflective coating can be ruined by scratches.
But, by combining Super Hi Vision EX3’s unbeatable scratch resistance with Hoya’s anti-reflective and hydrophobic properties the new coating offers extreme scratch resistance, extreme reflection protection, and extreme clean vision.For more information on EX3, and to see proof on its extreme scratch resistance, visit www.betterthanglass.com! The primary advantages of Super Hi Vision EX3:
- Extreme scratch resistance
- Offers the highest scratch resistance available on the coating market
- Extreme reflection protection
- Ensures the highest level of light transmission, providing more comfortable vision and elegant looks
- Extreme clean vision over time
- With an improved hydrophobic layer, EX3 is water and dirt repellent and easy to clean, even after long-term use and repeated wiping
Hoya Recharge - Lens Coating
RECHARGE is a premium lens coating developed to protect your eyes from damaging blue light wavelengths while allowing you to enjoy your favorite media devices.
A lens treatment with a measure of health protection. Blue light in itself is a natural phenomenon, it is present in daylight and helps us to stay awake, however, excessive amounts can have an adverse effect on our eye health. Our exposure to this High Energy Visible Light (HEVL) grows with the use of LCD and LED computer and television screens, smartphones, tablets and GPS devices.
If your visual tasks are based predominantly around near or intermediate distance, standard progressives may not be the perfect solution. Hoya Vision indoor lenses are specifically designed for you who demand crystal-clear vision at work or when completing detailed tasks in close proximity.
Actually, treating lenses is like icing a cake. Hoya Vision’s lens treatments are bonded to the surface of the lens or incorporated into the lens during the manufacturing process for maximum durability. You can opt for a single anti-reflective coating or a combination of several lens treatments. Depending on your needs and preferences, different types of lens treatments will make the lens perfectly suited to you.
Have you ever considered prescription sunglasses? There’s no need for them if you choose photochromic lenses because they change tint according to the light conditions. In strong sunlight, your spectacles work as sunglasses. Indoors, they are your normal clear spectacles. If you don’t want to carry extra glasses or dislike constant switching, then photochromic lenses are for you.
Sun protection, glare reduction and contrast-rich vision are important for the active outdoors wearer. Hoya Vision offers a range of tinted lenses that reduce glare and enhance contrast, even in challenging weather conditions. With dozens of options to choose from, there is no need to compromise fashion for function.
