The 580P mirror lens from Costa, previously available only in glass, now also comes in Trivex material, a super-lightweight, impact-resistant polycarbonate material. These polarized lenses prevent yellow light from entering the eye at the 580 nanometer on the light spectrum. They include a premium AR treatment and protect against UV rays as well. C-WALL™ technology enables 580P lenses to repel oil, dirt, and water. For more information, contact Costa 800-447-3700 at costadelmar.com, or at Vision Expo West #14107. ZEISS BELIEVES IN CHOICE. Designed specifically for wrap frames, the new ZEISS Progressive Choice Plus Sport lenses offer a high level of customization. This is determined by a combination of patients’ prescriptions and proprietary ZEISS prism compensation, which widens the area of clear vision by up to 50%, according to the company. Available in two corridor lengths, with minimum fitting heights of 13mm and 17mm, these lenses are compatible with i.Scription by ZEISS. For more information, contact Carl Zeiss Vision Inc. at 800-358-8258 or zeiss.com/lenses, or at Vision Expo West #LP8065.
CHANGE IS GOOD FOR VISION-EASE. Lightweight and 100% UVA and UVB protectant, the new ChangeRx FSV AR Photochromic Lenses from Vision-Ease repel everyday dust, dirt, and oil as they diminish glare and reflections. Liquid runs right off these lenses without streaking, and they’re highly scratch-resistant, anti-static, and oleophobic. ChangeRx lenses are available in 65mm and 70mm diameter for -6.00D to +3.00D spheres up to -2.00D cylinder.

With a unique lens pattern designed to enhance the visual clarity of Rxable lenses, Rochester’s Smart GOLD lenses for Google Glass allow for individual wearers’ visual demands. These lenses include an additional “sweet spot,” making it possible for the wearer to get visual clarity in front of the eye as well as in a second focal point in the upper right corner, to accommodate Google Glass’ display. This helps prevent eye fatigue and eyestrain. Options for materials include standard plastic, Trivex, and high-index lens materials. Smart GOLD lenses are compatible with Rochester’s patent-pending Smart Frames. For more information, contact Rochester Optical at 585-254-0029 or smartgold.rochesteroptical.com, or at Vision Expo West #LP11101. SIGNET ARMORLITE BROADENS ITS VIEWS.
