Free-Form Eyeglass Lens Manufacturing Technology

Free-form lens manufacturing is a revolutionary digital manufacturing process that uses computer-aided design and surfacing (grinding and polishing) to create high-level, customized eyeglass lenses with your unique prescription. Free-form technology uses digital-point technology that uniquely identifies each point on a lens and uses a router bit-type tool guided by a computer program, which make it possible to alter the surface geometry of a lens in very sophisticated ways. With this technology the ophthalmic industry is no longer tied to base-curve restrictions and the digitally generated curves can be extremely sophisticated.

Aspheric/atoric designs, such as progressive lenses, are easily attainable because the surface geometry of the lens can be altered in nearly limitless ways to meet the unique visual task requirements and lifestyle needs of individual patients

Benefits of customized free-form lenses include improved visual clarity, outstanding night/low light vision, exceptional contrast perception and brilliant color vision. The patients that will benefit the most are those with complex prescriptions and those wearing progressive lens eyeglasses.
