Hoya lenses are constantly evolving to meet the specific needs of individual patients. They do this using extensive research and cutting-edge technology to refine their processes and deliver the very best services and products possible. This makes Hoya lens technology extremely valuable and cements the brand as one of the leading suppliers of modern prescription lenses in the United States.
Here are just a few of the different types of lenses and the technology used to create them.
Unlike other single vision contact lenses. Hoya’s single vision lenses are created using prescription values determined using their point-by-point freeform technology which gives every individual pixel on the lens its own calculation value. As a result, the precision of Hoya single vision lenses is unrivaled, and patients can benefit from outstanding visual performance with every prescription pair of glasses.
Hoya’s progressive lenses are created using their leading and award-winning lens technology - iD FreeForm Design Technology. Progressive lenses are recommended for patients suffering from presbyopia, which is a refractive eye condition that occurs due to the hardening of the natural lens of the eye – something which becomes more likely as we age. Presbyopia can make it difficult for patients to transition between viewing distances quickly and easily. However, with Hoya’s progressive lenses this process happens much more smoothly. This is because Hoya progressive lenses are uniquely tailored to the individual needs of the patient and include such a gradual curvature that the transition between viewing distances is incredibly smooth.
Anti-reflective (AR) coating, is a layer of coating that is applied to the surface of lenses in order to reduce the amount of glare that reflects off of your lenses. This allows more light through to your eyes, ensuring that you can achieve sharper and clearer vision. It also prevents the annoying glare that is reflected back at people when they try to talk to you and enables your eyes to be seen.
The anti-reflective coating has been proven to reduce eye strain and increase patient comfort. Hoya has a number of award-winning, anti-reflective coatings that guarantee both protection and performance. This includes a scratch-resistant coating that gives your glasses long-term protection against damage and ensures that they remain in excellent condition for as long as possible.
Every patient is completely unique and so too are their requirements. Hoya lenses are tailored to their specific needs, whatever they may be. One example of this is in Hoya’s photochromic sports lenses, which are designed to ensure that patients aren’t forced to make a choice between protection and performance. These lenses use Hoya’s prism compensation technology – Sportive TrueForm – which offer complete clarity of vision, even in challenging and changing conditions. The lenses are made from impact-resistant material and optimized for the wraparound style frame that is most often favored by sportspeople. They can even be given 100% UV protection to keep your eyes safe from the harmful effects of the sun.
Hoya lenses take UV protection to a whole new level with a range of tinted lenses that offer a combination of sun protection, glare reduction, and exceptional visual clarity. These include their unique copper tone polarized lenses. These are designed to block harmful UV rays and filter HEV light while ensuring the colors the patient sees remain bright and accurate. Proper sun protection can also protect patients against many harmful eye conditions, from photokeratitis (corneal sunburn) and pterygium (a growth on the eye) to cataracts and even skin and eye cancers.
