Single Vision Lenses

ID single vision

“Never look at your lenses again.”

The ID Single Vision design provides clear vision from edge to edge of the lens. HOYA’s IDSD technology is the first to shape both sides of the lens to the specific rotation of your eyes, so you can focus in all directions, not on your lenses.

HOYA’s Free-Form design approach is based on the understanding that no two eyes are the same. Our patented Integrated Double Surface Design (IDSD) technology maps the specific rotation of each eye, creating the blueprint for lens construction. HOYA Free-Form Fabrication then uses diamond point tools to shape the lens to the exact specifications of your eye rotation.

Conventional single vision lenses use a spherical front surface, meaning the curvature is constant across the front. For low power prescriptions this design produces acceptable visual quality. But as the magnitude of power increases, distortions appear, particularly at the edges of the lens.

Aspheric lenses are designed to neutralize such distortions, with curvatures on the front of the lens changing from center to edge. But up until now, aspheric designs have been based on theoretical optical design, with little consideration for how the eye actually moves. HOYA’s ID Single Vision is the first aspheric design to account for actual physiological functions like eye movement, as well as the first to incorporate the prescription into both sides of the lens.

Nulux

“A lens that brings your surroundings into focus.”

For higher prescriptions, peripheral vision can be a problem. The Nulux design curves the front of the lens as well as the back, reducing magnification and expanding clarity.

HOYA’s conventional aspheric lens design incorporates slight curvature changes on the front surface to offset optical distortions that appear on the periphery of moderate to high power prescriptions.

Conventional single vision lenses utilize a spherical front surface, meaning the curvature is constant all across the front of the lens. For lower prescriptions this design produces acceptable visual quality for the wearer. But as prescription powers increase, distortions appear, reducing the quality of vision particularly at the edges of the lens. Aspheric lenses are designed to correct these distortions, as well as reduce the magnification of the wearer’s eyes and significantly reduce the bulge or thickness of a plus power lens (higher than +2.00D).

Hilux

“A great tradition in minor vision correction.”

For lower prescriptions, the HiLux lens offers a more affordable design, shaped to HOYA’s exacting specifications.

HiLux lenses are made using HOYA’s conventional spherical design process for single vision lenses, which produces a consistent curvature across the front surface.

Conventional single vision lenses use a spherical front surface, meaning the curvature on the front is constant all across the surface. For low power prescriptions this design produces acceptable visual quality for the wearer.

Progressive Vision Lenses

MyStyle

“The first completely personalized progressive lens.”

Each pair of HOYALUX iD MyStyle lenses is as unique as the individual who wears them. MyStyle represents the pinnacle of HOYA’s Free-Form technology innovations – combining our patented Integrated Double Surface Design (IDSD) technology (which maps the specific rotation of each eye), and our Balanced View Control technology (a computer vision evaluation that analyzes and corrects Skew Deformation), together with the personal wearing preferences and lifestyle of each patient. The result is the most personalized progressive lens in history.

Each MyStyle lens is created using our ‘Intelligent Design by Extensive Analysis’ (iDEA) technology, a process that goes beyond merely incorporating the prescription and frame positioning to include a comprehensive consultative process that determines all the parameters needed to create the patient’s ideal lens. From occupation, to hobbies, to wearing history, individual preferences are factored into the final lens design for a level of patient comfort and satisfaction never before possible. The more you rely on your eyeglasses, the more you’ll appreciate the MyStyle lens.

InStyle

“The lens design based entirely on your eyes.”

HOYA’s Free-Form design approach is based on the understanding that no two eyes are the same. That’s why InStyle lenses are designed and shaped to the specific rotation of your eyes. Our patented Integrated Double Surface Design (IDSD) technology maps the rotation of each eye, creating the blueprint for lens construction. HOYA Free-Form Fabrication then uses diamond point tools to shape both sides of the lens to the exact specifications of your eye rotation.

Progressive lens designs have always restricted the vertical and horizontal design components to the same side of the lens. HOYA is the first to customize the lens on both sides, creating a truly personalized vision correction. Our patented Integrated Double Surface Design (IDSD) process shapes the vertical component (which affects magnification and distance) into the front of the lens, and the horizontal component (which affects the power changes from side to side) into the back. The two surfaces are then integrated using Balanced View Control, our computer vision evaluation that analyzes and corrects any Skew Deformation, ensuring the clearest vision in all directions.

LifeStyle

“Every set of eyes deserves a personalized correction .”

The Lifestyle lens offers a semi-personalized progressive design, with the prescription partially shaped on the front and fully customized on the back to provide a noticeably clearer view in every direction.

Like the ID, the Lifestyle lens utilizes HOYA Free-Form Design technology to analyze eye rotation in order to map a unique lens design. Our Integrated Double Surface Design (IDSD) partially customizes the lens configuration using a standardized front surface component and a customized back surface component. HOYA’s Free-Form Fabrication then shapes the back of each Lifestyle lens with diamond point cutting tools for a semi-personalized vision correction.

While IDSD is used to completely customize the ID lens, the Lifestyle lens features a standardized vertical component molded onto the front surface and a custom design shaped into the horizontal component on the back of the lens. Even with only partial customization, Lifestyle lenses provide a more personalized vision correction than any other design in the world.

Summit IQ

“A breakthrough in HOYA Free-Form lens affordability.”

As leaders in Free-Form design technology, HOYA has adapted our manufacturing process to create the Summit iQ ecp and cd lenses. We call it “Visual I.Q.ity” – superior optical performance based on the advanced insights of our existing technology – which means now more people than ever can experience noticeable improvements in peripheral vision at all distances, as well as easier adaptation to wider and clearer viewing ranges.

For those with Presbyopia, Summit iQ offers sharp and wide distance viewing for a clearer, broader reading zone. The intuitive design of Summit iQ also allows for more natural eye and head movement, resulting in significantly more comfort for the wearer.
