CHANGING LIGHT FOR VSP'S PHOTOCHROMICS WITH AR Vision-Ease Lens has expanded its line of photochromics with ChangeRx FSV AR. These plastic lenses are coated with Vision-Ease's proprietary Vivid AR. The company says ChangeRx lenses are recognized for their lightweight comfort, photochromic performance, and affordable price. ChangeRx FSV AR lenses offer the same characteristics with the ad- ditional benefts of diminishing glare and refection because of Vivid AR. The super-hydrophobic coating reduces distortion by allowing liquid to run off without streaking, is scratch-resistant, anti-static, and oleophobic to repel grime. These lenses can adjust to changing light because photochro- mic molecules are embedded throughout the lens monomer. ChangeRx FSV AR lenses are offered in gray and brown colors and are available in 65mm and 70mm in diameter for -6.00D to +3.00D spheres up to -2.00D cylinder. For more information, contact Vision-Ease Lens at 800-328- 3449 or vision-ease.com or at Vision Expo East #LP7419.

Digiforce digital Rx lenses have been designed specifcally for Wiley X's 8-base wrap frames to allow Wiley X to completely customize each prescription to a wearer's lifestyle and frame ft and the technology's point by point digital lens mapping can minimize distortion. By accounting for intricate measure- ments such as pantoscopic tilt, wrap angle, vertex distance, etc., DigiForce can deliver personalized free-form lenses.
