And with Varilux DualOptix™ digital surfacing, both sides of the lenses have design elements.

About 70% of adults in the U.S. experience some form of digital eyestrain. In response to this, Quantum Innovations recently launched Retinal Bliss™ DES, a solution that addresses this condition from both the front and back of the lens. The front of the lens has a selectively reflective coating that lessens the intensity of LED light, while the back includes Quantum’s Retinal Bliss™ HEV, the only anti-reflective treatment that addresses the harmful and irritating effects of High Energy Visible (HEV) and UV light. For more information, contact Quantum Innovations at 888-268-3414 or qtmi.net.
YOUNGER STAYS IN THE ZONE. The Adage Trilogy lens has come to the rescue of patients seeking a short-corridor progressive lens with wide and balanced near and distance zones. Adage also features 160° viewing freedom in the distance zone, a minimum fitting height of just 13mm, and a wide near zone for a short design. There’s no need for secondary calculations, and this lens is made with impact-resistant, lightweight material that’s ideal for rimless frames. For more information, contact Younger Optics at 800-366-5367 or youngeroptics.com, or at Vision Expo East, #LP7155. ROBERTSON COATINGS ARE A ROYAL AFFAIR.

Robertson Optical Labs’ Royal offers patients a defense with anti-reflective treatments that include double hardcoats and non-slip grip pads for easy edging, and they’re all scratch resistant.
