Custom specialty lenses
Traditional use case
3D printing enables the manufacturing of custom lenses in a better form factor compared to legacy technology. By taking out the design complexity, challenging specialty lens prescriptions become accessible for ophthalmic labs to create in-house. Together we can develop unique lenses by making use of the benefits 3D printing offers.
Examples of specialty lenses are high prism lenses, high diopter lenses, custom bifocals, custom trifocals or occupational lenses. Various occupational lenses with additions at custom locations like pilot lenses, golfer lenses and the often difficult to produce children lenses belong to the possibilities of 3D printed lenses. 3D printed specialty lenses are compatible with industry coatings and customary processes like edging and framing.
