Driven by a passion for innovation and development, Hoya Vision is constantly moving boundaries. By use of extensive research and cutting-edge technology, Hoya provides tailored optimized experiences – both for the eye care professional and the spectacle wearer.
Lens making is a delicate process. It depends, to a large extent, on the technological skills and knowledge of the manufacturer. Even the smallest error can have a major impact on your customers' quality of vision. Hoya develops their lens technology to support opticians who want to be sure they are selling the highest quality products and wearers who desire clear, comfortable vision at all times.
All Hoya's lenses are produced with freeform surfacing. The main benefit of this lens technology is that we can consider the lens surface as a series of individual points. They then cut each of these points – at the pixel level – along multiple axes. Such precision means that we can optimize each lens for every prescription. They can even incorporate frame, fitting and wearing parameters into the lens calculation. The result is a highly personalized lens, every time.
Unique Premium Product
By selecting Hoya Vision lenses, you can be confident that you are wearing a state-of-the-art product resulting from a wealth of knowledge and experience. Put simply, Hoya provides you with the best possible technology solutions to support you with a unique premium product range that sets you apart.
