Occupational wear

The custom lenses the Luxexcel printing platform can 3D print will initially center around specialty lenses. Especially in situations where good vision is essential, like in the work environment, 3D printed lenses can be a great solution. Imagine that you are a pilot and you require good sight on your instruments above and below you as well as maintaining a proper view to the direction the plane is flying to. The Luxexcel 3D printing platform allows ophthalmic labs to manufacture custom solutions for occupational and leisure wear and offers the optician or optometrist to provide patients with exactly the lens they need.

The Luxexcel 3D printing platform allows ophthalmic labs to manufacture custom solutions for occupational wear and offers the optician or optometrist to provide patients with exactly the lens they need.

By making use of a custom software tool called the ‘VisionMaster’, both ophthalmic labs and optometrist can design lenses with custom positioned additions. Also, integrating special reading areas at custom locations belong to the possibilities.

The capabilities of this digital technology are very different from the well-known legacy technologies. It can be seen as an ‘enabler’ for completely new and different designs. The arrival of 3D printed ophthalmics requires a certain ‘re-thinking’ of manufacturing specialists and designers when it comes to novel eyewear product development.

Starting Q4/2017 the first printer will be installed at an ophthalmic lab. From that moment on, opticians and optometrists can start adopting this novel technology to the favor of their customers, in addition to the offering they are used to. The arrival of 3D printed ophthalmics provides the optician with a next possibility to add value to his eyewear portfolio. By providing them also with enabling software solutions, they can actively contribute to the best solution for their users.
