The Ultimate Series represents a group of engineered designs that incorporates Digital Ray-Path® technology. Each design in the Ultimate Series is guaranteed to have the most sophisticated personalization and optical performance. Digital Ray-Path® makes it possible to create a lens that is perfectly suited to each wearer. Prescription, personalization parameters, and frame data are taken into account to generate a customized lens surface that is specific to each wearer and frame. Each point on the lens surface is also compensated to provide the best possible visual quality and performance. Ultimate is more than a lens design – it is a highly personalized lens that accommodates wearers with extreme precision.
Digital Ray-Path® is the most advanced technology available to make digital lenses. The important difference appears when calculating the back surface of the lens. Instead of using a pure geometrical method, Digital Ray-Path® technology is based on an advanced three-dimensional calculation model that takes into account the actual position of the lens and the natural movements of the human eye. The result of this innovative calculation method is a lens that is personalized and provides better vision in all zones of the lens. Digital Ray-Path® lenses are personalized according to the individual parameters of each wearer.
Smart Add is a technology specifically designed to improve comfort when viewing electronic devices (smartphones, tablets, computers, etc.). The intermediate and near visual regions have been optimized for agile focus with less effort. The eyes are more relaxed, eyestrain disappears, and the wearer’s posture is more ergonomic. Smart Add technology improves lens performance while reading on screens, optimizing the surface for a more dynamic vision.
Any Ultimate progressive lens can be specially produced for a wrap frame. Using Digital Ray-Path® technology, the optician has the opportunity to measure the wrap angle of the frame and include this information when ordering the personalized progressive lens.
Digital Ray-Path® compensates for high rotation and lens tilt. This advanced technology generates progressive lenses that take into account a high wrap angle and provide the wearer with a high definition field of vision. No matter the gaze direction or frame curvature, the final quality of vision is always optimized to offer the highest optical performance.
When possible, the ECP should take measurements for all personalization parameters and send them with the lens order for a full compensation. These parameters will be used by Digital Ray-Path® to refine the optimization of the lens.
As a result, Digital Ray-Path® creates a lens that provides better vision through every point of the lens. The wearer will perceive wider, more comfortable visual fields in the distance, intermediate and near vision zones.
Personalization parameters used for the calculation are specific for each individual patient. Those parameters represent the identity of each wearer and make it possible to create unique lenses.
