HOYA’s Distortion Free OpticsTM with the Avantek Mounting System® was voted “Best New Product” at International Vision Expo East. The unique system allows eyecare professionals to demonstrate the finest optical lens technology available today while at the same time allowing the patient to immediately relate to the visual experience.
This is the product’s second generation and its second win of this award. Research from independent eye care providers lead to the style innovations showcased with plans to bring them to market later this year.
“Designed and styled to compete with high-end rimless lines of eyewear, the HOYA DF complete Vision System gives ECPs an opportunity for the first time to show the impact on lens design, based on the materials, AR treatment and mounting approach,” said Barney Dougher, President and CEO of HOYA Vision Care, North America, “It is not often ECPs can naturally steer the conversation to all of those factors and now they can. Annual consumer studies from The Vision Council consistently tell us that “scratch resistance” and “lightweight” are two of the top three attributes patients want in their eye wear – HOYA DF delivers on both counts.”
Every eye care practitioner knows the stresses and limitations of frames and 3-piece drill mounts. Until now, all frames have applied pressure to the lenses and distorted the optical properties, which is easily seen when looking at the lenses or any set of eye wear through a Polariscope. Distortion-Free Optics integrates four key components – lens materials, design, treatment and mounting system. In addition to eliminating the need for obstructive screws, wires or rims, the Avantek Mounting System® offers superior durability in comparison to drill mounts. This allows the patient to enjoy the best visual experience available today.
“HOYA Distortion Free Optics with the Avantek Mounting System® is a complete Vision System. This is unique, and it gives ECPs a way to easily demonstrate all of the technology that goes into an excellent visual experience to their patients,” stated Grant Zider, HOYA DF Avantek National Product Manager.
