3D printed lenses do not require huge inventories, a complex supply chain or have a limited product design. 3D printing offers ophthalmic labs and eyewear companies an opportunity to maximize the industry’s potential. A key element is the customization of the lenses to tailor the needs of the patient. Optimizing the lens design for 3D printing results in a good looking lens that satisfies the patient.
Traditional technology vs. 3D printing of lenses
Luxexcel created optimized 3D printed lens designs for each of the desired SKUs using a combination of our proprietary 3D printers, print material and printer software. The result is a significant reduction in lens thickness, curvature and weight, resulting in a cosmetically appealing product that will deliver better vision for the patient. The lab was able to demonstrate commitment to excellence in customer service by delivering what their client needed. The client has a new line to sell to their eye care practitioner customers, delivering a vast improvement over legacy product. Through our partnership and the power of Luxexcel’s patented technology, we solved an existing problem together and created a completely new product: the world’s first 3D printed prism reading glasses.
