BLUTECH ULTRA
POLYCARBONATE LENS

Available in plano and prescription, BluTech’s Ultra polycarbonate “near-clear” lenses filter harmful blue light in the 459nm to 282nm range. Ultra lenses feature Blue Light Plus, a unique formula of pigments, dyes and lens materials embedded in the lens. Ultra lenses are best for children and adults who spend more than three hours per day on a digital device, contact lens wearers, adults with a family history of macular problems and patients after undergoing LASIK or cataract procedures, according to BluTech. 800.258.5902,

SUPER OPTICAL’S
BLUESHIELD LENSES

Blocking more than 95% of the blue light portion of the spectrum that is associated with possibly causing macular degeneration and eyestrain, BlueShield lenses from Super Optical also block more than 85% of generally harmful blue light and less than 2% of the range associated with maintaining circadian rhythm. Using BlueShield in conjunction with FastGrind eliminates the need to stock many different lenses to cover the entire FastGrind range: -9.00D to +8.00D sphere and up to 3 cylinder. 800.543.7378, SuperOptical.com.

US OPTICAL DRIVE HD LENS
This free-form progressive lens comes with both default and options to add personalized measurement parameters. A wide, clear area for distance vision adjusts power distribution for driving tasks, while the lens’s design places mirrors in astigmatism-free zones. The Drive HD Lens is available in plastic, polycarbonate, Trivex and high-index (1.60, 1.67 and 1.74) material. BluTech and Blue Clear lenses are also available in mid-index ranges. Crizal AR (Prevencia), Digital AR or ZEISS Duravision can be added to reduce night glare. 800.445.2773, USOptical.com.

UPGRADED EDGER TOOLS FROM PSI
PSI, the exclusive distributor for Diateq Labs, has redesigned its combination, roughing and drilling tools for MEI edgers with stronger materials, extending the life of the tools. Metal alloy in combination tools reduces vibration, which also improves lens edge finish. A high-performance, diamond-coated carbide in roughing tools keeps tool edges sharp, and redesigned drill bits that can handle increased side loads alleviate clogging from polycarbonate swarf. 800.237.8154, LookToPSI.com.
