Digital Lenticularization

Digital Lenticularization

Eye-Kraft’s exciting new Digital Lenticularization process opens up some amazing new opportunities for high power corrections. With free-form generation we’re able to reduce edge thickness on both high-power plus and minus lenses allowing patients the freedom to experience our digital designs in frame sizes and shapes they’ve never had access to before.

 

What Is Lenticularization?

Lenticularization is a process developed to minimize lens thickness and weight. An optimal optical region is defined around the fitting cross. Outside this region, the free-form lens calculation blends the surface curvature towards the edge to reduce the thickness of the final lens. As a result, minus Rx lenses are thinner at the edge and plus Rx lenses are thinner at the center.

 

When is Lenticularization Appropriate?

Any high correction patients are eligible for this process. Higher order ammetropes who are generally already used to having less optical performance at the periphery are more likely to adapt well to a digital lenticular lens. Patients who have never been eligible for digital lenses or even progressives because of blank thickness availability or cosmetic and lens weight problems are excellent candidates for lenticularization.

Lenticularization can help these patients finally get their temples closed and their nosepads adjusted. 

 

 

Other Applications

For large eye-size sport and sunglass frames, even more mild prescriptions can have excess center and edge thicknesses. Lenticularization can help patients finally get their temples closed and their nosepads adjusted. 

 

 

Availability

This process can be applied on any DLS digitally processed lens with the exception of the Digital Round Seg and BFree digital bifocal. This includes Digital Single Vision, the Anti-Fatigue, Camber, and all of our Free-Form progressives.
