TORRANCE, CA — May 2014) A buzz of questions has been developing around Camber™ Lens Technology. What is it? How does it work? Where can I get it? Younger Optics has launched a new website to help answer these questions in detail: Camberlens.com.
What is Camber Technology? Camber is a revolutionary new lens technology that combines complex curves on both surfaces of the lens to provide excellent vision correction.
How does Camber Technology work? Camber Technology was developed in order to improve the performance of digital progressive lenses by providing the ideal base curve in all zones of the lens. Camber Technology utilizes a unique new lens blank with a variable base curve, which means the front surface increases in optical power from the top to the bottom of the lens blank. This provides the appropriate base curve from the distance zone to the near zone. To learn why this is important, visit Camberlens.com.
What is the benefit to the patient?– Wearers experience better vision in all zones compared to lenses made from single vision blanks. This includes an improved reading area that is more spacious and easier to find with the eye. In general, patients show faster adaptation, according to a wearer study. Camber lenses are fully customizable –variables that affects vision can be individualized to patient. In a wearer study, more wearers preferred Camber lenses to lenses of the same design made from single vision blanks.
What is the benefit to the Laboratory?– Camber lens blanks were designed with digital processing in mind. Camber lens blanks are convenient to stock, just like single vision blanks, but with higher levels of performance for the patient. Camber technology allows labs to provide premium quality digital lenses as part of their private label. Bill Hefner IV of FEA Industries, Inc., states in a recent article in Eyecare Professional Magazine, “For independent labs, Camber is a major step forward in terms of being able to offer a premium product as their own brand.” A growing number of labs are offering new lenses with Camber technology.

What is the benefit to the dispensing EyeCare Professional?- ECPs can give their patients better looking lenses with fewer frame limitations. Camber lenses tend to be flatter, especially for high plus and high add prescriptions, so these patients will receive more cosmetically appealing lenses with easier frame selection. For patients who want the latest technology, ECPs can feel confident that Camber’s unique, patented, two-surface design is as technologically advanced as any other lens on the market.
