Rodenstock has launched Biometric Intelligent Glasses, which use a new concept in lens design referred to as ‘B.I.G. Vision For All’.
According to the German lens manufacturer, the new concept is resulting in the first highprecision progressive lenses to be made from a complete biometric eye model.
Launched at the international trade fair opti 2020, the Munich based company said that in presenting B.I.G Vision For All, it is “initiating a paradigm shift in individual progressive lenses” by recognising that every eye is different.
“At Rodenstock, we determine the biometrics of the whole eye. This includes its length and several thousand data points in the eye – far beyond industry standards,” said Anders Hedegaard, CEO of the Rodenstock Group.
All relevant biometric data, as determined by the DNEye scanner in combination with patented technologies, are integrated directly into the lens, orchestrating a construction process which results in the “world’s most precise lens”, the company says. “This biometric eye model enables Rodenstock to ‘precisely hit the sharp vision centre of every individual eye, providing people with the sharpest vision possible at any angle or with every gaze, both in the glasses’ peripheral zones and at distances from mid, near and far.”
WEARERS REPORT BENEFITS
Rodenstock states that its B.I.G. Vision with DNEye Technology delivers a seamless, dynamic and natural experience that works perfectly together with the brain.
“B.I.G. Vision delivers up to 40% sharper vision at near and intermediate distances and an 8.5° wider field of sharp vision at near. When asked about their experience with Biometric Intelligent Glasses in a Swiss study, a high percentage of users experienced a wide-range of benefits to their vision. For example, 88% of participants noticed greater visual comfort with their DNEye glasses compared to their old glasses. 92% experienced sharper vision than before, 84% experienced better contrast vision, and 87% experienced reduced adaption time.”
