Essilor of America, Inc. announced that it has launched the first personalized lenses available in the United States designed to accommodate the specific physiology of certain ethnic populations.
Essilor’s research and development analysis of more than 200,000 patients in the areas of optics, physiology and how people use their eyes and wear their frames revealed that five out of six wearers in Asian populations have different measurements from the average values for pantoscopic tilt, wrap angle and vertex distance. The company then used these data to develop patented technology that personalizes lenses for Chinese and Indian eyes and is now offering Varilux Physio Enhanced Azio, Essilor Azio Single Vision and Varilux Physio Enhanced India lenses as the first of its new ethnic lens products.
